Exercise: Yes, a workout regimen can be helpful to reduce certain injuries by strengthening muscles, improving balance, enhancing coordination, and stimulating healthy bone development. Some people may get injured working out, but that can be minimized by using a trainer to get started and by using lighter weights for repetition rather than power lifting.
