As the temperature rises, are you someone who wants to avoid injuries while working on the yard? Hi there, I'm Dr. Dalton Wood, a chiropractor at Performance Health Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
You already know how important it is to train for your sport to prevent injury. Well my friend, yard-work is a sport and its an activity we have not done in months so it's important to prepare our bodies for the new activity to prevent common injuries that can occur. Let's face it all winter you've been cooped up inside not bending, twisting, lifting or pushing like you are about to do to upkeep your yard. Here are some things you can incorporate into your everyday movement to prevent injuries.
In just a moment, I'll be demonstrating some functional movement exercises that can not only lower your risk of injuries but also enhance your overall functionality while working.
So, don't go anywhere, stay tuned.
