Answer

Prevention of bursitis and tendonitis depends on proper body mechanics at work and at play. Avoiding overuse and gradual increases in exercise is the best means for prevention. Warm-up and cool-down exercises and stretching are recommended. Balancing aerobics with strength training and stretching, particularly yoga, can be helpful.

No methods have been proven to prevent fibromyalgia. An overall program of stress reduction that combines mindfulness, meditation, and vigorous exercise, as well as avoiding injury, may offer the best chance for prevention.
