Gardening Safety Tips

1) Warm up before you begin. Get your heart rate up by taking a 10-minute walk followed by some stretches for your upper and lower back, neck, arms and legs.

2) Use a garden cart or wheelbarrow to move tools and heavy planting materials.

3) Don’t kneel on both knees. Keep one foot on the ground to give your back more stability. If you have to kneel, use knee pads or a pillow to absorb some of the pressure.

Tip 4: Research glass options

Many homeowners focus on patio door treatments to control sun heat, add privacy and protect against drafts that seep in during cooler weather. However, curtains and blinds often obstruct the view. More homeowners are choosing to forego heavy drapes, and even when opting for sheers, the trend is for greater transparency and light. With the development of innovative glass technologies, patio doors are becoming more equipped to insulate and protect the home. Tinted glass provides additional shading against the heat. Obscure glass protects privacy and allows abundant light to enter the room.

Addressing depression and anxiety helps.

Your chances of developing chronic pain may be higher if you also are experiencing depression and anxiety. A recent study in the Journal of Pain showed that depression, as well as some of our thoughts about pain prior to total knee replacement, was related to long-term pain following the procedure. Make sure that you talk to your medical provider about your mental health throughout your treatment; it can help make your journey go much more smoothly following an injury or surgery.

Clean your Windshields and Replace the Wipers

It is very important for the driver to get the perfect and clear view of the road for safe driving. Check your wipers and get them replaced whenever needed. Using damaged wipers can cause scratches to the glass and obstruct your view, which will lead to replacing your windshield altogether.

Don't focus on an image.

While most of us want a diagnostic image (ie, x-ray, MRI) to tell us "why we hurt," images actually give us little information about what's causing pain. A study performed on individuals 60 years or older, who had no symptoms of low back pain, found that more than 90% had a degenerated or bulging disc, 36% had a herniated disc, and 21% had spinal stenosis. What shows up on an image may or may not be related to your symptoms. Once imaging has cleared you of a serious condition, your physical therapist will help guide you back to the life you want to live!

Get your Tires Rotated and Balanced

This is the easiest trick in the book to prevent wearing of tires and make them last longer, and the trick is to get them rotated once in a while. All tires do not wear at the same amount. So by rotating the front and rear tires, you balance the wear and make them more durable.

Ensure that the tires of your car are always perfectly aligned as non-aligned tires can make you lose control of your car and cause accidents.
