Now that the weather is warming up people are venturing outside to garden, tend the lawn, and play outdoor sports. It is important to keep in mind,
while enjoying outside activities to be mindful of body positioning and
extensive time doing activities to avoid injury.
Common summer activities such as gardening and lawn care can be damaging to the back and spine. Constantly bending over, twisting, pulling, while doing
these activities after a winter of being sedentary could result in an injury or aggravate a preexisting one.
Just like in sports, it is important to warm up before play, the same goes
for marathon gardening or lawn mowing. Warming up tissues and muscles before you begin working will not only help keep your body healthy it will also diminish the chance of injury.
