Snow, Shovelling and Back Pain

The frigid temperatures have hit Windsor, Ontario. Along with weather-related joint and muscle stiffness comes the physical demand of shovelling the new fallen snow. Every year I see an influx of Chiropractic clinic traffic due to shovelling-related injuries. The Ontario Chiropractic Association is working to create informative posts regarding common, preventable injuries.

Please review the “Lift Light To Shovel Right” link if you plan on participating in any manual snow removal this season. It is easy to let bad habits result in pain and discomfort. I speak from experience!
