Winter Weather

Hey everybody, I wanted to go live to give you some good tips on essentially snow and ice and what to do. Of course, we are one of the top Chiropractic Clinic in Northwest Arkansas, snow and ice the last couple of days. So I want to give you some real quick tips on what you can do, not only driving, but also with walking to make sure that you can avoid any accidents, avoid any car wrecks, and make sure that you are going to be as healthy as possible and survive the winter weather that we’re going through.

So I grew up in Minnesota. I grew up driving on winter and weather roads all the time. And one of the best things you can do there to avoid an accident. I would be things like just slowing down, allowing plenty of room between yourself and the car in front of you. That way if they slam on their brakes, you have plenty of time to do that.
A lot of times the highway departments might not get quite as much, ice or a salt or different gravel on the roads. So. If you can allow plenty of room, that’s going to be really, really important to make sure that you can avoid any wrecks. And then as far as walking on snow and ice, this is something that’s really, really important.

A lot of times we want to keep our hands nice and warm, so we’ll put our hands in our pockets. And that’s not something that you want to be doing while walking on ice and walking on snow. So instead, invest in a good pair of mittens or gloves. That way you can keep your hands. Out of your pockets because that’s going to help you with balance and making sure that you don’t slip and fall on ice or the snow.

So I get a pair of gloves, get a pair of mittens, keep those hands warms so that you don’t have to put them in the pockets and you can maintain real good balance. Hey, it’s Dr. Ryan Carlson and deeper it’s health center in Bentonville, giving you some healthy hints.
