Shoveling injuries and prevention

The snow is here and that means plenty of shoveling —and back exercise that some people aren’t used to. What’s the best way to prevent injuries when clearing sidewalks, cars and other snow-covered areas? How can one get stronger before the snow flies to get into top shoveling shape?  Linda Scholl, a physical therapist at University of Utah Health Care’s Orthopaedic Center is available to speak on the topic.  To schedule an interview, contact Libby Mitchell in the University of Utah Health Sciences Office of Public Affairs.
