Shovelling

Winter is here! ❄️❄️

With the snow on its way, it’s important to make sure you shovel properly to avoid injury! Here are some shovelling tips:


🔸 Make sure you pick the right shovel! Using a light weight, non-stick, push shovel is best.


🔸 Push, don’t lift! Pushing snow to the side is better than lifting and throwing. If you must lift, make sure you don’t twist and turn!


🔸 With a smaller blade, there is less weight on the shovel and less strain to your body!


🔸 Make sure you’re using your knees, legs and arm muscles to do the pushing while keeping your back straight.


If you find you’re experiencing some pain from shovelling, it’s important to get it checked out by a health care provider. Book an appointment today!
