This is the season of the year that brings special time with loved ones, but it’s also a time when many un-merry mishaps and accidents can happen. From neck and back pain to sprains and strains to serious fractures that can put you in the emergency room. With a little care, preparation and precaution, you can be safe and enjoy the holidays to the fullest, while reducing the risk of experiencing a slip and fall injury.
This is where holiday prep, go for tools and the like usually begin. However, the garage can be the first place where danger lurks during this season.
Anything can happen around the tree, ornaments fall and break, wire from the lights shorts out, trip and fall around it.
Wrapping gifts on the floor doesn’t pose the greatest risk for a spine injury, but it can increase chances for a muscle strain and sore back and neck. Hours just hunched over on the floor is a sure-fire set up for back pain.
As a spine injury specialist, I can tell you falls from the roof while hanging lights are real, and can be life-changing. From severe spine injuries to paralyzing fractures.
No matter how you choose to decorate and entertain this holiday season, safety is priority one. From our team here at Injury Medical and Chiropractic Clinic Happy Holidays!
