Injured while Christmas Shopping? Capitol is here to help!
With the winter holidays right around the corner, festive decorations are popping up around town. But for the 80% of adults who experience back pain, the most wonderful time of year can easily become the most painful… if they aren’t careful. Each day, 240 people get injured while decorating during December.
Julie Lombardo, owner of Capitol Physical Therapy, says a majority of her clients this time of year are 50 and older, although she stresses that back pain doesn’t discriminate.
“I think it’s something everyone should be concerned about,” Lombardo said. “The older we get, the slower we heal, so we want to be really cautious of that.”
