Safe Raking

Raking leaves is a great outdoor activity anyone can enjoy.  But many have probably experienced pain or discomfort after a long day of raking leaves and bending over to pack them into bags. When you do start raking those leaves, keep these tips in mind. 

  • Before you start, warm up your muscles with a 10 minute walk.
  • Follow your arms up with easy, low-impact stretches.
  • When lifting bags of waste/ make sure you are lifting correctly.
  • Drink lots of water to keep your body well hydrated.
  • Relax and do not overextend when you stretch.


If you experience back pain that persists for more than a day or two after yard work, consider consulting with a chiropractor!
