The snow is falling and people are injuring themselves by shovelling improperly. Injuries range from back pain, to knee pain, and shoulder injuries that can be long term issues if not treated right away. Without requiring treatment after there is another way to deal with the pain of shovelling and that is prevention. While making exercise part of your daily routine and general healthcare, there are certain precautions you can take to prevent injuries and strains related to snow shovelling.
