❄️Snow shovelling tips❄️

It’s that time of year again 🌨☃️

Winter weather comes with its own injuries, especially the all-too-common back, neck, and shoulder pain from improper snow shovelling. 

Here’s how to help prevent this: 

❄️ Warm up for 5-10 minutes prior to shovelling to get your joints moving and increase blood circulation.

❄️ Pick the right shovel: lightweight, non-stick, push-style shovel with a curved handle (ergonomically correct).

❄️ Push the snow to one side and avoid throwing it. If you have to, avoid twisting and turning through the low back.

❄️ Bend your knees to lift, keeping your low back straight.

❄️ Watch for ice and wear proper footwear with solid grip.

❄️ Take frequent breaks and ask for help. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
