Safe snow shovelling tipsIt’s that time of the year again when the weather in Toronto is chilly and the place is getting bombarded by snow from all angles. Places like Downtown Toronto, in particular, receive heavy snowfall during winter. During such times, you will need to shove aside the snow and this will more often than not lead to injuries unless you take proper care.

You should always consult your Chiropractor as they will tell you some of the best tips that you must keep in mind to prevent snow-shoveling injuries. Here are some simple tips they will tell you.

Warm-up before starting

Having a tight and stiff body will be more prone to injuries. Stretch for a few minutes and while shoveling, don’t forget to breathe properly.

Always be prepared

You should spray some Teflon on your shovel such that snow doesn’t stick on it. Snow makes the shovel heavier and increases the chances of an injury.

Keep a proper posture

Anytime you are shoveling, remember to bend your knees and keep a straight back when lifting with your legs. Instead of trying to throw the snow, push it straight ahead. Always shovel forward for avoiding sudden twists of your torso and reduce the strain on your back.

Take your time

Avoid working too hard and too fast as it will strain your muscles. Frequently take breaks.

Meet your chiropractor

A gentle spinal manipulation will surely keep your back flexible while minimizing the chances of any injury. If you’re facing a slight discomfort, your Chiropractor will help you feel better.
