It’s that time of year again! Every year thousands of people injure themselves shoveling snow, and almost half those injuries are soft tissue related. Here’s a couple tips before heading out.
1) NO FATIGUE: When we get tired we tend to compensate and use improper lifting techniques.
2) NO PAIN: If you start to feel a tweak or achy sensation anywhere STOP and take a break.
3) PROPER FOOTWEAR: Wear something with a rugged sole, so you don’t end up on your butt!
4) HYDRATION: It’s always a good idea to drink plenty of water.
And remember, you can always put the kids to work!
