Physical Therapy Advice from the Experts

It seems as if spring in Delaware has finally arrived, bringing everyone outside to garden and play. We expect to start seeing our usual influx of new patients, who have overdone it over the previous weekend and pulled or twisted something. You may think that it is too late to prepare for springtime, but here is a list of steps to take to minimize your risk of winding up calling your doctor next Monday morning:

1. Do not do your activity first thing in the morning. We are stiffer in the morning, and therefore more apt to get hurt. What is the best way to warm up? Take a hot shower, then go for a short walk to get the blood flowing to your muscles. Then, and only then, should you consider stretching.

2. Do not do heavy or strenuous activity late in the day. This is when you are fatigued, and your form may not be correct for the activity. This is when an accident will happen. It is very tempting to push yourself to weed that last flowerbed of the day, but resist!

3. If you are in one position for a long period of time, occasionally reverse that posture. For example, if you are bent over planting flowers, stand up, put your hands on your low back, and arch backwards. If you have been painting your ceiling all day, sit in a chair, band over, and hug your knees.

4. Make sure you have the right tool for the right job. I know I sound like your father on this one, but it really helps to keep you in a safe posture when working. Do not use tools with broken handles, rusted pieces, or even using a hand tool when you have it’s electrical counterpart available.
