Get in Shape to Tackle Your Yard This Fall
 
 
Before you rev up the lawnmower or reach for your rake this fall, consider the possible consequences: upper or lower-back strain, neck strain and pain in the shoulders.

Just as playing football or golf can injure your body, the twisting, turning, bending, and reaching of mowing and raking can also cause injury if your body is not prepared. Like an athlete, if you leap into something without warming up or knowing how to do it, the chances of injury are greater.

What Can You Do?
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and your local doctor of chiropractic offer the following tips to help prevent the needless pain yard work may cause.
  • Do stretching exercises, without bouncing, for a total of 10 to 15 minutes spread over the course of your work. Do knee-to-chest pulls, trunk rotations, and side bends with hands above your head and fingers locked. Take a short walk to stimulate circulation. When finished with the yard work, repeat the stretching exercises.

  • Stand as straight as possible, and keep your head up as you rake or mow.

  • When it's still warm outside, avoid the heat. If you're a morning person, get the work done before 10 a.m. Otherwise, do your chores after 6 p.m.

  • When raking, use a "scissors" stance: right foot forward and left foot back for a few minutes, then reverse, putting your left foot forward and right foot back.

  • Bend at the knees, not the waist, as you pick up piles of leaves or grass from the grass catcher. Make the piles small to decrease the possibility of back strain.

  • When mowing, use your whole bodyweight to push the mower, rather than just your arms and back.

  • If your mower has a pull cord, don't twist at the waist or yank the cord. Instead, bend at the knees and pull in one smooth motion.

  • Drink lots of water, wear a hat, shoes and protective glasses. And, to avoid blisters, try wearing gloves. If your equipment is loud, wear hearing protection. If you have asthma or allergies, wear a mask.

  • Try ergonomic tools, too. They're engineered to protect you when used properly.

  • If you do feel soreness or stiffness in your back, use ice to soothe the discomfort. If there's no improvement in two or three days, see your local doctor of chiropractic.

Environmental Certification

The Certified Environmental Professional (CEP) Program began in 1979. In that first year, ten environmental professionals were awarded the CEP designation. Since that time the CEP logo has been trademarked by the US Patent & Trademark Office, and the credential has achieved international recognition.

At its inception, the CEP Program operated under the auspices of the National Association of Environmental Professionals and the CEP credential could only be awarded to NAEP members. In 1993, after 14 years of operation, NAEP transferred the CEP program itself to a subsidiary body – The Academy of Board Certified Environmental Professionals (ABCEP) which continues to operate the program today.

In 1999, ABCEP was incorporated as a non-profit organization, independent of NAEP. Since then, the CEP designation has been made available to the broader environmental community. As a result, the number of CEPs has grown and several organizations, in addition to NAEP, endorse ABCEP as their recommended organization for certification.

For more information or to apply, visit the ABCEP website: www.abcep.org.
