Avoid injury when shovelling snow by doing this

Tuesday, February 23rd 2021, 2:20 pm - Physiotherapist provides best practices to avoid injury while shovelling snow

It’s nature's greatest workout -- shovelling snow!

Using a shovel requires the use of all the major muscles in your body, and generally speaking, if you are out there for an hour, the calorie burn could be around 400-600 calories.

However, because this action is so intense, it can cause muscle soreness and even potential injury.

In this latest Health and Weather segment, reporter Rachel Schoutsen explores some best practices for shovelling snow with physiotherapist Kareem Ali.
