Stepping into this new year and decade Sonic Relief is dedicated now more than ever to ensuring the health, fitness, and pain-free living of our users. For many, as the calendar changes over from December to January, this time of year brings around many changes and millions of people decide to make resolutions. Surveys show that many of these resolutions relate to wellness, losing weight, eating better, exercising more, or simply just getting healthier. This time of year the weather also starts to change, the winter can be beautiful, with fresh layers of glistening white snow and a shiny layer of frost. But winter can also be dangerous especially for those attempting to stay fit, motivated, and warm. So keep your Sonic Relief handy!
For those who want to keep exercising but don’t want to take the risks of going outside when it’s chilly and slippery consider indoor exercises, swimming in local indoor pools, walking through a museum or a mall. The health benefits to a vigorous walk include improved balance and coordination, strengthening your bones, maintaining a healthy weight, and more. (Home Watch Caregivers) (Care.Com)
Below are the winter safety tips to stay safe, fit, and enjoy this chilly time of year.
Slip and Fall:
Icy, snowy roads and sidewalks make it easy to slip and fall. Often these falls cause major injuries such as hip and wrist fractures, head trauma and major lacerations. While younger people often recover relatively quickly from such injuries, older adults face complications which are a leading cause of death from injury in men and women over the age of 65.
Before you decided to head out into the elements, here are some important ways to avoid injuring yourself:
If you do end up falling backwards, make an effort to tuck your chin, so your head won’t hit the ground. Also, try to form a ball and relax the muscles. You will injure yourself less if you are relaxed. Also wearing a heavy, bulky coat will cushion you if you should fail.
Of course, we encourage you to take all precautions to avoid slips and falls, unfortunately, there’s no avoiding this seasonal risk. Accidents do happen and so do aches and pains. If you ever find yourself seriously injured from a slip and fall or are suffering from any current ailments we encourage you to keep your Sonic Relief on hand to speed healing, reduce pain and inflammation, and help you return to living pain-free. In addition, follow these steps to give yourself the best chance of recovering from your injuries:
Checking for injuries
Symptoms of joint injury
Symptoms vary, depending on the type of joint injury you have:
For strains and sprains, use the RICE method:
Several rounds of the RICE method should lead to recovery, and pain medication can ease your discomfort.
If you’re unable to move the joint at all or feel numbness around your injured area, arrange to see your physician as soon as possible.
Therapeutic ultrasound such as Sonic Relief™ works to stimulate the tissues of an injury, inflammation in tendons, ligaments and joints, trigger points, muscle knots and strains and just about any soft tissue injury or condition. When the tissues are stimulated by the soundwaves, it brings blood flow to the area to speed healing and flush out inflammation.
