The winter months are the most difficult time for back and neck pain patients due to the condition of sidewalks, roads, parking lots, and other surfaces. The wrong shoes can lead to slips and falls that could result in serious injury. Choose shoes that are slip-resistant (i.e., rubber soles) and provide proper cushioning if your feet will need to stand or walk for extended periods of time. Shoes should also have enough grip on slippery surfaces like ice without having too much traction, which can cause more slippage from sudden movements such as quick stops or turns. These features may help prevent slips or falls on icy surfaces this winter season!A sudden slip and fall injury can be a scary situation, here at the offices of William Capicotto MD we can help you get back on your feet.
