The holiday season is all about tradition, fun, and family, but if we’re not careful, the holidays can also lead to injury. Typical holiday activities, such as shopping, lifting heavy boxes, snow shoveling, and countless hours of cooking, can cause muscles to work harder than usual.
The added demands of the holidays stresses the body, which may increase the risk of injuries related to the extra activities (neck, shoulder, and back pain). The best way to ensure a pain free holiday season is to use proper body mechanics to help prevent muscle and joint discomfort this holiday season.
Taking precautions this holiday season would help avoid injuries—from distributing the weight of shopping bags, to being more aware of your body posture and positioning when shoveling the walk.
