‘Deck the halls’ Are you putting up your decorations this weekend?
Lots of people will be putting up their Christmas decorations this weekend. It really brightens up the winter evenings to see the lights and pretty trees.
Over the years I have had patients come in with injuries as a result of putting up the decorations so here are a couple of tips:
- Use a chair or ladder to help you reach heights.
- Make sure you move your ladder so you are not over-stretching
- Two pairs of hands can make things easier – ask for help.
- There are no rewards for acrobatics!
I hope you have a lovely time putting up your decorations and enjoy the cheer they bring to December evenings.
