High heels and turkey cause seasonal pain

4th January 2010

The British College of Osteopathic Medicine has warned that it sees many more patients after the festive season than at other time of the year.

The BCOM said people often suffered back or ankle pain because they had taken the turkey out of the oven incorrectly, worn high heels for long periods or carried heavy shopping bags. BCOM principal Dr Ian Drysdale advised: "When you're lifting the turkey out of the oven, bend your knees and keep your back straight. Don't stoop or twist and you'll avoid unnecessary pulled muscles."
