There’s lots of helpful information on the British Chiropractic Association’s website. We thought this particularly relevant and useful right now!:
Buying the Tree: When buying your Christmas tree, take care when getting it into the car. Use a trolly and ask for assistance when loading into the car. Same when you get home; don’t tackle it on your own – wait until you have someone to help. Don’t lift with your arms straight out, keep the elbows bent and to your side to minimise the stress on your back. Bend knees and not your back to pick items up.
Time for the decorations!: When putting up the Christmas decorations, try not to overstretch and use a step ladder to hang up your garlands or to put the decorations higher up your tree. When using the ladder or steps, make sure you are always facing them, keeping your shoulders, hips and knees pointing in the same direction. Rather than leaning or reaching, move the ladder or step regularly to keep up with where you are. Any kind of ladder must be firmly and safely planted in position and, if possible, have someone else there to keep an eye on things.
