Here's How to Shovel Snow Safely
Avoid injury by following these simple shoveling tips.
Some cities are expected to get as much as three feet of snow this weekend, so you're going to want to get your shovels at the ready.
But Dr. John Corbelli, a cardiologist with the VA Hospital in Buffalo, New York, warned the endeavor can put you in hospital if you're not careful.
“When you go out in the cold your bronchial tubes constrict," he said. "If you've got lung disease, COPD, you're a smoker or heart disease - that can all cause strain on your lungs or heart.
"Shoveling is a lot of work, a lot of muscles are involved.”
He says the safe way to shovel is by taking the snow from the top and bending your legs.
