Summer Activities and Chiropractic Care

Posted at August 2, 2010 | By : | Categories : News | 0 Comment

Summer is in full swing and this means increased activities. These can include: sports, gardening or home improvement projects. In fact, according to the National Gardening Association, two out of three American households take part in some gardening activity each year. Chores vary regionally but include: raking leaves, transplanting trees and shrubs, planting spring-flowering bulbs and perennials, removing dead branches from trees, controlling troublesome weeds, and lawn mowing. Whether you’re a master gardener or budding amateur, keep these safety tips in mind.

  • Keep your back erect when working at ground level and when using long-handled tools, such as spades and rakes.
  • Bend at your knees and hips to lift objects.
  • Alternate or use both arms whenever possible.
  • Keep your elbows bent.
  • Don’t rest your body weight on your elbows.
  • Work below shoulder level whenever possible. If you must work above shoulder level, perform the task for five minutes or less.
