We often think of back injuries happening during times of strenuous activity such as when lifting a heavy item or playing contact sports. But according to our Southend chiropractor, many people pick up painful back injuries at home. Sometimes, things that seem relatively harmless around the house – such as a random toy left on the stairs or a scuff in the living room rug – can pose a big danger. That’s why it’s important to make sure your house is safe for you and everyone living there.
The next time you’re at home, take a look in every room and remove or rearrange things that are potential hazards for trips and falls. For example, make sure wires and leads are taped to walls, flatten down any uneven rugs or carpets and always make sure walk ways and staircases are kept clear. All it takes is one trip or fall to cause a damaging long-term back injury, so it’s really worth safe-proofing your home today!
