How to Avoid Aches and Pains at Home
Spring is the time of year when Canadians start gardening and doing more activities outdoors. After taking it easy over the winter, preparing for activities like gardening will help you avoid bodily aches, pains and strains.
About 88% of Canadians expect to experience pain with the increased levels of activity. But, less than a quarter of Canadians plan on ways to alleviate the pain in advance like having over-the-counter medications like Tylenol on hand.
To prepare for physical activity, a good rule of thumb is to always warm-up first. Taking the time to do this and to stretch your muscles will go a long way. Also, think about prevention and protection. Wear the right gear like shock absorbing running shoes and use the right equipment. When in the garden, use kneeling pads a bucket turned upside down as a stool for good posture.
Good body mechanics and proper technique help to reduce injuries. When it comes to gardening, alternate between heavy and light tasks. Keep your work in front of you and move with your work. Your arms should stay between the levels of your hips and your shoulders which is called your easy zone.
If you do experience strained muscles from outdoor activities, there are a few things you can do to help diffuse the pain. Listen to your body. Change your posture or position in response to your pain. When seated, a small pillow or lumbar roll will help support and protect your lower back.
Applying heat to aching joint and muscles will ease any discomfort. Have a hot shower or use gel filled packs on your neck, back and shoulders to help alleviate aches and pains. You can also consider over-the-counter analgesics. Remember to talk to your doctor about any persistent pain. There you have it, tips for easing into physical activities this spring. Your garden, your back and you muscles will thank you.
