Slipping on ice

It’s coming close to the time of year when ice forms. Slipping on ice can cause a herniated disc and/or a sprain/strain. Before walking on your driveway, look carefully for ice, especially for black ice. Here are some things to do to reduce your risk of slipping:

  • Wear sturdy boots
  • Use de-icing products
  • Take slow steps 
  • Shovel your driveway
