 12 Safety Tips to Avoid Injuries in Your Home

By Tri-Rehab



Providing a safe environment for our loved ones to minimize potential falls is key to staying healthy and avoiding other health issues.

1. Be sure that all electrical and phone cords are tucked out of the way and that all throw rugs are removed.

2. Make sure carpet is safely secured to the floor and that there are no wrinkles or raised areas.

3. Place non-skid strips on the bottom of the bathtub.

4. Be sure to sit down while shaving, brushing your teeth, styling your hair or putting on make-up. Use a tabletop mirror or a full length mirror so you can use it while either standing or sitting.

5. Be careful when you walk from one surface to the next, for example, from a carpeted area to a tile floor.

6. When moving from a lying down position to a standing position, sit up first, rest a moment, then proceed to stand up slowly and stand a few moments before trying to walk. 


10 Tips to Help Make Summertime Activities Safe and Injury Free

By Tri-Rehab


1. Increase your exercise levels gradually. Walking, riding a bike and doing yard work can be a daily activity, but start small to avoid excessive soreness and/or muscle strains.

2. Water intake is essential with any activity. Drinking 8 glasses of water daily is recommended by most healthcare professionals.

3. Improve your overall upper body strength by doing 10 push ups a day, starting with your knees down on the floor and just doing the push up from the waist up. This is acceptable to avoid injury and until your upper body strength improves.

4. Improve your core or abdominal strength by doing 10 sit ups a day. Don't hook your feet under any furniture as this works your hip muscles versus your abdominal muscles. It is recommended that you should bend your knees, with your feet flat on the floor and put your
hands across your chest, not behind your neck. As your strength improves, add 5 to 10 repetitions to your program every week for pushups and situps.

5. Stretch your calves before beginning any ladder climbing, excessive walking or running. You can easily do this by stepping on the first ladder rung, letting the back of your feet gently drop down off the back of the ladder rung until you feel a comfortable stretch.
Another way to stretch your calves is to place your foot up against a solid structure, such as a fence or your home, and lean forward gently till you feel a stretch in your calf. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times for both calves.
