Warm up and stretch before tackling those spring cleaning chores

The sun is shining, the weather is warm, the grass is green and now you’re faced with a list of spring cleaning projects. But before you start, remember you most likely are not as conditioned as you should be because of the COVID quarantine. So, it is very important this spring to stretch, warm up and remember to use proper body mechanics when performing chores. That’s the recommendation of Dr. Chudik with the Shoulder, Knee and Sports Medicine Injury Clinic in Westmont and Western Springs, Ill., and founder and president of the Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Teaching & Research Foundation (OTRF) who together with his OTRF health performance team created a research-based guide to help prevent injuries when tackling any chore on your list.

To maximize the benefit of this program, it is important to follow the recommended number of sets and repetitions while maintaining proper form at all times.
