Sports injuries happen all year.  If you strain a muscle, rest it, ice it (20 minutes per hour), elevate it and take two Advil (or other Ibuprofen).  If you think it is more than a small, simple strain or if you don't get pain relief in 24 hours, see a doctor.  See http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/guide/muscle-strain for more information.

Now is the time to get your flu shot.  The CDC recommends that almost everyone over 6 months old get a flu shot this season.  See http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/qa/flushot.htm.  Here is a map that should help you find where to get your flu vaccine:  http://flushot.healthmap.org/.  Stay healthy.
