Dr. Scott Seidel Shares Tips for Staying Safe on Icy Sidewalks

Posted on

 

Residents of South Texas certainly know how to handle the heat.  But what about the cold?  How about the ice?

While we are fortunate not to have to deal with either of these phenomena on a regular basis, when the cold and ice hit we need to stand back and understand that this weather can be serious and pose safety risks.

As a born and raised resident of Wisconsin, I am used to cold and icy weather.  Although I have not lived in that climate for several years, I picked up a few basic safety tips to keep in mind to prevent serious injury in icy conditions:

  1. Always wear tennis shoes or boots with traction on the bottom.  Avoid sandals or dress shoes that do not provide grip to the ground.
  2. Make sure to wear warm socks.  If the ground is cold enough to form ice it is cold enough to cause your feet to freeze if they are not properly covered.  While frostbite is unlikely in this case, cold feet are never comfortable.    
  3. Pay attention to where you are standing and/or walking.  Always look down to determine where your next steps will be.  Quickly peruse your path to determine areas free from ice.  Also, be aware that ice is frequently difficult to spot, especially in parking lots with darker colored concrete or blacktop.
  4. If you must cross an icy patch, use a broad stance.  Walk slowly using short steps and avoid varying your speed.
  5. If you are prone to falling, please be extra careful on the ice.  Or just stay inside until the ice melts (that won’t take long in San Antonio)!

The most common injury in icy weather is a fall onto your back, hip or outstretched arm/wrist. Twisting of ankles and knees is also fairly common. If you do suffer an injury from the ice, please call our office immediately for evaluation. 

Stay safe and warm, San Antonio!  

Dr. Scott R. Seidel is a board certified chiropractor with The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group. He treats patients aged 6 years and up for chronic and acute pain related to the neck and back. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Seidel, please call 210.281.9595.

Dr. Scott Seidel Talks “Text Neck” with the Express-News

Posted on

 

 Did you catch TSAOG’s Dr. Scott Seidel in the San Antonio Express-News this morning?  He was discussing “text neck” with reporter Jessica Belasco.

According to Dr. Seidel, “The head is designed to be over the shoulders. It’s never designed to be out in front of the body.  When you’re taking the neck and the head out of their natural position for a prolonged period of time, that puts just a tremendous load of stress on the back of the neck and shoulders. It can really cause a lot of problems for people.”

Check out the full story in the Express-News here.

Check out Dr. Seidel’s blog on “Text Neck” here.



Dr. Scott R. Seidel is a chiropractor with The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group.  He specializes in conservative treatment for acute and chronic neck and back pain and treats patients aged 6 years and up.  To schedule an appointment with Dr. Seidel, please call 210.804.5484.
