With eighty-eight per cent of Ontario chiropractors reporting that gardening is the most common source of back and neck pain during the warm weather season, the Ontario Chiropractic Association’s Plant and Rake Without the Ache public education program is aimed at helping gardeners to avoid the stiff and sore joints, muscle, neck and back pain that sometimes accompanies work in the yard.

The program features tip sheets that outline proper warmup exercises, stretches, lifting techniques and injury prevention strategies in a simple, easy-to-follow format.
