Given the huge amounts of heavy snow the northeast has been blessed with over the last 24 hours with Winter Storm "Pax", I thought it worthwhile to re-post this blog, originally posted last week.
Here in the northeast we are seeing record breaking amounts of snow. At Doctors Express Hartsdale we are seeing many people coming into our urgent care center suffering from lower back pain resulting from straining their backs while shoveling. We don't want to see you doubled over with back pain and we'd like to help you keep your back healthy. After all you've got things to do!
In this first of many Doctors Express Medical Minutes, I will walk you through tips on how to avoid back pain and strain when shoveling snow, and how to treat back pain if you do strain your back. Come on in!
Welcome to my debut performance of the Doctors Express Medical Minute! If you have suggestions of seasonal health related topics you'd like to see a Medical Minute on, please leave a suggestion in the comments below and I'll be happy to consider it.
