PLEASE CLICK HEADINGS FOR INFORMATION
  • LIFTING HEAVY LOADS ?

    Open or Close

    …this is the biggest cause of back injuries in the garden, (be it a small plant or heavy bag), so always lift with bent knees, keeping your back straight subsequently reducing the amount of strain through your back & neck

    • Move your compost, plants & wood chipping one at a time & make 2 or 3 trips, rather than risk carrying one heavy load & causing an injury.

  • MAKE USE OF THE WHEEL BARROW…

    Open or Close

    That old adage, "bend from the hips and knees, not the back" comes in especially handy here

    This is because when you straighten up, you will have leverage power to use that can save your back muscles from strain & injury.

  • KNEEL WHEN WEEDING

    Open or Close

    kneeling down on a pad with both knees, when weeding or doing other similar activities

    • You greatly reduce the strain through your neck, back & hips

  • SWAP ACTIVITIES REGULARLY

    Open or Close

    Varying your activity in the garden; why spend hours just digging or cutting the hedge

    • There are plenty of different jobs that need to be done from mowing the lawn to pruning

    • Let your muscles rest & recover by limiting each activity to 30 minutes before having a quick break or moving onto something different.

  • LITTLE & OFTEN

    Open or Close

    Why do too much in one day?

    • Your body, may not, be used to lifting & the types of activities associated, with gardening

    • If you suddenly start gardening everyday after a long winter of inactivity your body is bound to pick up an injury, you wouldn't start running everyday, if you aren't used to it!

    • Doing small amounts several times a week will hugely reduce your likelihood of injury, don't launch yourself into the flower beds & rockeries all at once over a bank holiday weekend

  • POST-GARDENING

    Open or Close

    • If you feel stiff in the evening or the day after, applying an ice pack for 10 minutes can help reduce inflammation in the muscles & surrounding tissues.

  • GARDENING IS VERY GOOD

    Open or Close

    Don't let possible pains deter you from gardening completely.

    Practised wisely it has huge health benefits;

    • studies have suggested that around half an hour of gardening a day, will reduce blood pressure & cholesterol levels • whilst also aiding psycho-emotional health.

  • TIME FOR TREATMENT ?

    Open or Close

    • If you already suffer with an injury, a check-up before setting out in the garden is advised. • If after gardening you are still suffering 3-4 days later, look for some advice & treatment from David your osteopath.
