The first major snowfall of 2016 struck on Wednesday morning, forcing the shovellers out in droves. If this winter is anything like last, there is much more snow on the way. Snow shoveling is one of the more common back injuries during the winter months. While it is a common injury, it is a preventable injury, if you know the best ways to remove snow without straining the back.
“Shoveling snow can actually be a great form of exercise, if you know what you are doing” explains Dr. Jen Maher. This month, Dr. Jen Maher will present two informative sessions on snow shoveling and injury prevention. These informative sessions are aimed at helping cape bretoners concur winter shovelling.
