Slip and Fall Prevention Should Be Top-of-Mind in Winter

Snow, freezing rain and ice make surfaces difficult to navigate and increase the risk of falls along with associated injuries such as fractures, sprains, strains and head injuries.

If you’re on a slippery surface, take short steps and walk slowly.

Try to establish three points of contact such as a rail or other stable structure as you walk.

Avoid carrying anything in your hands while on a slippery surface as you need your hands free for balance.

If you do take a fall, a good neuromuscular massage will help relieve your aches and pains.
