Gardening Tips for Spring

  • Be sure to plan all activities before you start – have your equipment within easy reach
  • Rotate frequently between 2 or 3 different tasks whilst gardening. This helps to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury.
  • Prepare your body as if you were warming up to exercise. Start off slowly and give your body time to ease into the task.
  • Use both sides of your body. For example, alternate between your left and right sides when using a shovel.
  • If it looks too heavy, it probably is! Get someone to help you move heavy / awkward items. If you can’t tilt it easily you shouldn’t lift it.
  • When you lift, keep your back straight, bend your hips and knees, and tighten your tummy.
  • Be aware not to get too fatigued. Plan regular rest breaks and stay well hydrated.
  • Have a chiropractic check up before you start your attack on the garden.
