How to shovel and remove snow properly

With the winter season well underway, it is important to follow some simple advice to be able to enjoy winter and what it has to offer, instead of suffering with low back pain. Every snow storm, bring those beautiful snowflake that we have to unfortunatly,  remove from our sidewalk and driveway. Here is some advice to keep in your head before heading outside.

  1. Warm-up before getting outside
  2. Don't let snow accumulate, and go outside more often, during the snowstorm
  3. Make sure to have a well adjusted shovel, and that is made of light material
  4. Bend your knee, and keep your back straight
  5. Take your time
  6. Push the snow instead of lifting it
  7. Drink water, we often don't feel the thirst in winter
