If you are doing early-morning exercise or gymnastics regularly, you may wish to continue this habit even during your holidays. Some participants in congresses may even arrange to meet early morning for some joint jogging. But if the necessary warming-up phase is left out, the result of the sport activity may be sore muscles, strains and in the worst case a torn ligament.
Those holidaymakers who want to try a new type of sport or new equipment in their holidays are even more at risk of injury. Some approach this challenge too ambitiously and overestimate their own capabilities.
When looking for fast relief of their physical problems in a foreign country whose language they do not speak, the persons affected will mostly visit a pharmacy.
