Here's another blog from a Milton chiropractor discussing: snow shovelling reminders
With another snow storm headed our way, here are some snow shovelling reminders to keep your risk of injury down:
1) Don't wait for the snow to pile up before heading out to shovel. Instead, move small / lighter amounts by shovelling frequently.
2) Avoid twisting and throwing. Try pushing the snow instead to reduce chance of injury.
