Walk Softly and Carefully
Thankfully so far this winter has not been anything like the last winter from HELL! You never know what can happen, so I just want to remind everybody:
Please continue to walk with care and watch your steps. Unfortunately I know a patient who stepped out of his car, a little ice patch was right below, and he slipped and tore a ligament in his knee. So please when getting in and out of the cars- be careful, have sound footing and pay attention. When you walk out of your homes, check the sidewalk to make sure that it is not iced up.
I can't tell you how many patients I've seen over the years that have hurt themselves from winter weather and needed either my care, emergency care, or orthopedic care from injuries.
So, please walk softly and carefully.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
