Gardening is a wonderful activity for your health and well-being; but like any activity, there are less and more efficient ways to do things. Physical therapist Aron McConnell reviews the principles of ergonomics and presents strategies to avoid awkward postures and repetitive motion injury. Learn appropriate methods of lifting, carrying, and moving objects, as well as the best ways to hold and handle gardening tools while standing, kneeling, or sitting. Take the ache out of raking, weeding, pruning, and planting using proper ergonomic techniques! Dress for the weather.
