Back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, arm pain. We see all types of injuries here at Glen Abbey Physiotherapy in Oakville. Since January first, we have had a large influx of patients getting injured slipping on ice. To make matters worse, Oakville Physiotherapy has been privilege to 5 slip and falls this year, caused from pulling dogs and icy streets.
Physiotherapy Oakville Injuries on Ice
The staff would like to commend these outdoor dog enthusiasts, but also remind them to prepare for the worst. With icy conditions come slippery sidewalks. Combine that with a 100 pound pulling dog and an ever so brave squirrel, its a recipe for disaster.
To prevent these slip and falls, purchase you and your loved ones a set of studded walking spikes that fit over your winter boots. They work great and will keep you up right when you need them the most. Another way to avoid being dragged by the leash is to put the leash aside! Oakville has some great leash free dog parks.
If you do fall, don’t forget, Glen Abbey Physiotherapy is Oakville’s highest reviewed physiotherapy clinic in Oakville.
