Happy 2010! Back Care In The Snow!

Hi everyone! I do hope you had a lovely time over the holidays.

Well we are now inundated with  heavy snow and ice! Where I live we are not used to prolonged periods of snow,; yes we get some snow every winter but it doesnt usually last very long. However, this looks set in for a while.

It is important if you have back issues to take extra care in snowy and slipperly icy weather. You really do not want to slip and jar your back or worse still fall. Also important not to strain your back either. So a few quick tips if you are coping with the snow and ice!

1. Walk carefully on snow and ice, wear shoes or boots with very good grips or invest in good quality shoe grippers designed for ice. I just got a pair and they are brilliant!

2. Ideally do not dig out the pavement or drive. If the snow is not too deep or just icy you can scatter salt or get someone else to do the digging out .

3.Keep your back warm. If your muscles tense up with the cold you may find you get more pain. Try a heat pad. Wear layers.

4.See if you can get your shopping delivered. Many stores do this service, depending on where you live. I find it invaluable as no need to drive or walk through snow and ice just to get food supplies.

So just a few tips. If you have anymore please let us know. If you liked this post do consider joining our Facebook Page Sciatica Solutions.
