Clean-Up & Avoid Injury!

Home/Seasonal/Spring Cleaning

Spring has sprung, but so have our aches and pains!

Everyone is coming out of hibernation and can’t wait to get moving and working outside!

May is traditionally the month where we plant our flowers, sow our seeds for our Summer harvest, and start cleaning out the cobwebs left by Winter’s long stay.

Spring Cleaning and the need to freshen our living space is a relentless motivator for change.

However, the need to busy ourselves with chore after chore can also be a catalyst for creating problems with repetitive strain injuries, body aches, and pains.

It is helpful to understand the nature of these injuries while empowering patients to take a proactive approach in their ramp-up to Spring Cleaning activities.

Some of the more common injuries and conditions during the Spring are:

  • Lateral Epicondylitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)
  • Lower back and core strains and sprains

For the average person, Spring Cleaning activities might look like twisting repeatedly while raking the yard, followed by bracing and reaching while trimming a hedge, and reaching overhead to clean out the eavestrough.

Although the countless articles and blogs on Spring Cleaning might suggest otherwise, most of us don’t have a lot of time to complete all of our Spring Cleaning tasks. Most people are cramming in as many jobs and tasks around the house into a short period of time (you know, all that spare time between work, family obligations, and basic life necessities!)

Thinking of the movements involved in Spring Cleaning and how quickly we try to complete our tasks, it’s easy to see how people injure themselves frequently at this time of the year.

Manual therapists are also not immune to going overboard on their own Spring Cleaning. Even though we should know better, sometimes the manual therapist is the one that hurts themselves while cleaning the patio furniture!
