Tips to avoid back pain while snow shoveling - Bel Marra Health

Snow shoveling is a very physical and strenuous activity. If done incorrectly, it can lead to injuries and back pain. Common snow shoveling injuries include overworking of the muscles, falling, hitting yourself with the shovel, straining muscles and ligaments, breaking bones, and experiencing heart- problems. (In fact, seven percent of snow shoveling injuries are heart related.)

Key Takeaways:

  • Snow shoveling is a frequent cause of injuries and back pain when done incorrectly due to being a very physical and strenuous activity.
  • Experts advise pushing snow instead of lifting but if it must be lifted do so with your legs, don’t bend at the waist, and don't throw snow backwards.
  • To avoid injury,always use the right snow shovel, warm up thoroughly, use ergonomic lifting techniques, pace yourself, and keep your feet on the ground.
