Snow shoveling or snow blowing: Which is better for your back? [Video]

There are multiple ways to handle snow. You should choose the one that hurts your back the least.

In general, a blower can be better for serious pain. You can use it while keeping a straight posture and push it along the ground, but be wary of the weight. It’s good to move slowly, especially when large amounts of snow have piled up.

However, you can still use a shovel and stay clear of pain with the right methods. Avoid bending your back too much and do some arm and leg stretches before starting serious shoveling. 

No matter which way you clear snow, you should make sure to stay warm and take breaks.
