Gardening, like any outdoor activity, involves a wide variety of movements that are hard on your joints, from lifting, pushing, and pulling to getting up and down from the ground repeatedly — all in just one day! When done incorrectly, you increase your risk of gardening-related injuries, no matter what age you are. Dr. McConnell shows you how to properly lift, dig, rake, prune, carry materials, shovel snow, and get up and down from the ground so you can garden pain-free for years to come.
