Snow shoveling is one of the most common causes of injury to the low back each winter. Make sure you take the proper steps to reduce your risks.
Winter is a wonderful time to enjoy outdoor activities. Skiing, sledding, snowboarding, snowshoeing, skating, or just building a snowman are all excellent forms of exercise and recreation. However, a new fad -- snow diving -- has Massachusetts chiropractors very concerned. Children and adults are diving or flipping into snow banks as if they were diving into a pool of deep water, putting themselves at risk for serious injury.
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of chiropractic—often referred to as DCs, chiropractors or chiropractic physicians—practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. In addition to their expertise in spinal manipulation/adjustment, doctors of chiropractic have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
