With the recent snow falls, it’s a good reminder that snow shoveling can cause injuries.
Lower back strain is the most common injury caused by snow shoveling, but falling and being hit by a shovel is another significant risk for cuts or broken bones. Kids are 15 times more likely to suffer injuries from being hit with a snow shovel than adults.
Overworking muscles in the hands and arms is another common result of snow shoveling.
If you suffer an injury as a result of shoveling snow, a good neuromuscular massage will help you lessen the pain and regain your range of motion in time for the next snow fall.
