One of the best ways to save money is to stay healthy. But sometimes overdoing exercise can land you at the doctor. Orthopedic surgeons are seeing a wave of exercise-related injuries among baby boomers -- a phenomenon referred to as "boomeritis."
While staying active promotes health, at age 50 and older the body is less forgiving. Injuries can occur when people push beyond the body's capability. Typical problems include tendinitis, bursitis, stress fractures and tendon tears (such as rotator cuff injuries).
