Watch out for these while walking in the snow!

What should he pay attention when walking on snow or iced ground? How to act in case of a fall, sprain or slip, and how to make the first intervention in fractures and cracks?

What are snow walking techniques?

  • First of all, you have to take care not to put your hands in your pockets. Because you lose your ability to hold in this way, and in addition you have difficulty in maintaining your balance. No matter how cold the weather is, you shouldn't put your hands in your pockets.
  • On the other hand, things like bags or bags should not be carried in the snow. This is necessary both to keep in balance and to watch your body as it falls.

  • The shoes used must be non-slip. Rubber sleeves with studs on the underside can also be used for walking on ice and snow.
  • Snowy weather should be avoided walking downhill. Elderly should not go alone. Because they are more likely to slip and fall. It is necessary to pay attention to the slopes and stairs. Everyone must walk by looking in front of them, seeing obstacles and identifying icy areas.

How should we move if we fell in the snow?

  • When we fall, we need to avoid the impact of the limb.
  • If you are unable to walk, you should ask 112 or the local community for help. You need to keep that limb high and prevent edema from occurring.
  • If possible, you need to prevent bloating by applying cold and you need to go to the nearest health facility quickly.

  • If broken, it requires professional care. Temporarily attaching the area with cardboard, cardboard or dressing reduces pain.

How do we know if it's broken or cracked?

It is very difficult to understand from the outside whether the region is broken or cracked. However, it can be confirmed by radiological examination.

There is nothing important here if you don't have much pain if you can walk on it. Because everyone's pain threshold is very different. This perception varies from person to person.

If you have experienced a high and rapid change, you should visit your nearest health institution. In particular, cracks in the elderly may not be seen in the first X-rays. Ten days later, the X-ray taken will reveal the fracture line. Only then can the diagnosis be made clearly. It is useful to be cautious.

We wish you all the days to enjoy the snow safely!
