Spring Cleaning Without the Aches and Pains: Orthopaedic Tips for Household Chores

Whether you’re an athlete or not, the season of Spring brings higher activity levels for nearly all people. Depending on your orthopaedic history, age, and injury history, doing things like spring cleaning and simply being more active in other ways can lead to some aches and pains. This is due to activation of muscle groups and joints that have not been activated as often throughout the colder months. In this article, we’re going to zero-in on the household chores – indoor and outdoor – that come in the Spring, and how you can make sure you’re staying healthy and pain-free while doing them! Let’s get into it.

Understanding Spring-Related Aches and Pains

As the weather warms up and activities increase, it's common to experience aches and pains, especially if you've been less active during the colder months. This is often due to the sudden activation of muscle groups and joints that haven't been used as frequently. Whether you're tackling spring cleaning tasks indoors or working on outdoor projects, it's essential to be mindful of your body and take steps to prevent injuries.

Preventing Injuries During Spring Activities

To avoid injury while tackling spring chores, it's essential to start slowly and gradually increase your activity level. Take frequent breaks to rest and stretch, especially if you're engaging in repetitive tasks like bending, lifting, or reaching. Using proper lifting techniques and ergonomic tools can also help reduce the risk of strains and sprains. If you do experience pain or discomfort, listen to your body and stop activities that aggravate the symptoms.
