Spring and Summer Wellness Tips

by Christine Turner2. July 2015 10:00

 

For many, summertime means grilling, fireworks and water fun. For Emergency rooms across the country, it’s the busy season. Here are some tips to help you avoid the Emergency room and stay in the backyard, at the show or on the water:

 

 

 

 

 

Grills

 

  1. Perform preseason checks on hoses, LP tanks, connectors and burners before lighting.

  2. Make sure it is on a flat surface.

  3. Keep drip pan free of grease.

     

    Fireworks

 

  1. Don’t point at people.

  2. Never relight a “dud”.

  3. Don’t make homemade fireworks.

  4. Soak used fireworks in water before disposing of them.

     

    Rivers, Lakes, Pools & Slides

 

  1. Don’t show off.

  2. Make sure equipment is in good condition.

  3. Be aware of potentially slippery surfaces.

  4. Know what’s beneath the surface. Cloudy water or water with obstructed views can have unseen hazards.

A Message from our Wellness Department

by Christine Turner24. June 2015 10:00

 

Back injuries resulting in back pain are common and one of the main causes is low back strain.

 

According to WebMD, “Low back pain can be caused by: extreme physical exertion, falling, bending or crouching repeatedly and lifting heavy objects if you are not in shape.” 

 

WebMD suggests these tips for preventing low back strain:

 

             If you feel any low back pain during activity, stop.

 

             If you feel low back pain within a day of stepping up your workout, take it easy for a few days,

 

             Exercise and stretch your back muscles regularly.

 

             Sleep on back or side.

 

             Bend at the knees when picking up objects.

 

             Lose weight if you are overweight.

 

             Adopt good posture. Sit straight in chairs, with your back against the chair’s back.

 

 This summer, stay safe, stay in shape and stay healthy!

 More information about low back pain can be found at http://www.webmd.com/back-pain/guide/low-back-strain
