Avoid Turkey Carving Catastrophes

, ,

Physical Therapists near Atlanta GAIt’s the time of year for gathering with friends, reflecting on what’s important, and of course, eating delicious food. And one of the best parts of any Thanksgiving feast is carving up the bird.

Unfortunately though, that long-loved tradition is also the cause of tons of hand and wrist-related injuries each year. In fact, Thanksgiving sits near the top of the list of dangerous holidays thanks to hazards like these.

To avoid a Thanksgiving feast fiasco:

  • Don’t get distracted from carving because you’re watching the kids, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade or that big game. Staying focused on the task at hand can help prevent dangerous injuries.
  • Make sure your utensils are sharp. If the knife is dull, you’re more likely to press down harder, upping the chances of slips and cuts.
  • Make sure the cutting board, counter, or table you’re using is dry before carving.
    Always carve away from yourself.

And remember, Sovereign Rehabilitation is here to provide you with top-quality personalized rehabilitation treatments for a wide range of hand and wrist wounds and injuries. Our team specializes in multi-modality treatment plans that we cater to your specific needs.
