With the high temperatures and increased humidity of summer still in full swing, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the various types of heat illnesses, review the symptoms to watch for and learn how to treat a person suspected of having a heat illness.

Any time you initiate physical activity, it is important to do so safely in order to reduce the risk of injury. If you find yourself with pain or injured, consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation. Orthopedic ONE’s Sports Medicine physicians and Sports Medicine Hotline are great resources should you need them!
