A Fall from a Ladder can Ruin Your Holiday

If you’re going to hang your own holiday lights or decorations out of doors, then be aware of how many people fall from ladders in the pursuit of a little holiday cheer.

If you’re going to climb a ladder, check your ladder before you use it. If there are bent or broken rungs, replace the ladder before you climb.

Don’t climb a ladder alone. Have someone nearby who can steady the ladder while you climb.

Don’t let your kids or a helper climb the ladder with you. Believe it or not, having more than one person on a ladder is a common cause of falls from ladders.

Lessen the Risk of Injury from Shoveling Snow

Here are a few suggestions for shoveling snow to lessen the risk of injury:

Warm up with some light exercise before you go outside to shovel.

Wear slip-resistant shoes or boots.

Take frequent breaks. There’s no rule that you have to get all of the shoveling done at once.

Push the snow out of the way rather than trying to lift it, especially if the snow is more than a few inches deep.

Don’t throw the snow over your shoulder. The twisting motion from side to side may stress your back.

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.

Shoveling Snow can be Dangerous

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.

Healthy Feet Prevent Other Injury

As you age, keeping your feet healthy can improve your mobility and balance, and reduce your risk of falling.

Examine your feet often for injury or sores.

Buy shoes that have extra depth to accommodate insoles or custom orthotics.

Avoid tight socks or nylons that do not give the feet room to breathe and to move freely.
A good neuromuscular massage will help your feet stay healthy.

Diabetes-Related Foot Injuries

Diabetes is often the cause of loss of sensation in the feet which means you may not feel it when your foot is cut, is injured, or becomes infected.

People with diabetes need to check their feet often to make sure there is no injury or infection.

A good neuromuscular massage can help bring blood flow into the feet which will help with healing if there is injury, and to prevent tissue damage from diabetes.

Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation in the ligament that runs along the bottom of your foot from the heel to the base of the toes.

Stretching exercises will help relieve the pain, but a good neuromuscular massage should eliminate it.

Many people report immediate relief of their plantar fasciitis with a targeted massage, while others require several massages before the pain is completely relieved.
