How To Protect Your Back In Winter

Winter is the most common season for back pain and back injuries. Here are some things you can do to protect your back in the winter:

  • Wear the right gear when skiing/snowboarding: Skiing and snowboarding can be a dangerous sport if you’re not wearing the right gear to protect yourself. Many people have received back injuries from using old ski and snowboarding equipment.
  • Wear the right shoes: The ground can become super slippery during the winter due to ice making it more likely for you to fall. It’s important that you wear shoes that have a good grip to avoid falling and getting injured.
  • Shovel properly: Many back injuries occur from shoveling because you’re twisting and lifting at the same time. To avoid any pain, shovel a little bit at a time and take multiple breaks.
