The first day of fall is almost here. If you plan on reaching for the rake to clean up the leaves, be sure to these extra precautions to prevent injury.
1. Stretch for 15 minutes prior to raking to warm up the body. Bend at the knees, not the waist.
2. Don’t twist your torso.
3. Keep your piles small.
4. Take frequent breaks.
5. If you feel soreness or stiffness, call our office to schedule a check-up.
