Winter is here, embracing us with its cozy nights and beautiful snowfall. Who doesn’t love the view of a snow-covered neighborhood, right? But, as magical as it looks, it can also be mighty slippery and treacherous underfoot.
Here are the top 3 tips from our clinicians for safety in slippery conditions:
- Prevention is key! Clean stairs/walkways well, even using sand or salt if necessary
- Don’t go it alone! Make sure your family or friends assist you on icy stairs and sidewalks.
- Choose the proper footwear! Wear appropriate outdoor snowshoes or boots.
