There is nothing more enjoyable than spending time in your garden during the summer season. However, if you suffer an injury, it can bring an abrupt halt to your good times.

Fortunately, knowledge of common gardening injuries can go a long way in helping you prevent trouble. Here are four of the most common injuries, all of which you should protect against:

·      Neck pain: This can result from many things, such as lifting too much or constant turning of your neck.

·      Back pain: From heavy lifting to pulling to bending, there are many gardening related activities that can result in both upper and lower back pain.

·      Shoulder tendonitis: Consistent use of your shoulder, such as to rake or dig, can result in tendonitis, which requires rest in order to improve.

·      Carpal tunnel syndrome: This is most common in the wrists, and is typically the result of performing the same task, time after time.

Along with the above, you also have to contend with things such as sunburn, insect bites, and bee stings.

As long as you know what could go wrong when gardening, you’re in better position to protect yourself. Don’t let one or more of these injuries slow you down this summer.
