Ryan’s Winter “Insurance Policies”

Well, here we are, February–what I call the longest month of the year! As the snow has piled up, I’ve noticed some changes in what folks are coming in to be treated for. I went from seeing everyday symptoms like digestion trouble, sleep concerns, colds, and sinus congestion to more acute issues stemming from falls on the ice and overuse of the back and elbows from shoveling. So, I’d like to offer the following “insurance policies.” Both can dramatically improve your ability to have a pain-free winter and each cost roughly as much as one acupuncture treatment. Together, our goal can be to work on your everyday concerns and keep those acute injuries at bay!

 

Policy #1: Save Your Back

Ergo shovelFor snow removal, I recommend using  this ergonomic shovel. It will help reduce unnecessary strain on your back. It may take a little longer to do the work because the amount of snow you can move is smaller, but your body will thank you–trust me!

Bonus: if you buy a new ergonomic snow shovel Murphy’s Law will guarantee you won’t have to use it! You’re welcome. 🙂

Policy #2: Prevent Slips and Falls

Wearing  these strap-on ice cleats over your shoes and boots will dramatically decrease your risk of falling. I have many patients and professional colleagues who wear these and report feeling 100% confident while walking in slippery conditions. There are many brands available online and locally, and most cost about the same as one acupuncture treatment.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon, and hope that you’ll consider my recommendations for preventative measures that will keep you healthy, strong, and injury-free this winter! Schedule online now.

 

Be well,

Ryan
