After a winter storm left parts of the valley blanketed with snow, residents are stuck cleaning up the mess. However, shoveling snow has the potential to lead to health problems.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says to shovel early in the day and often because the snow will be lighter. Also, always push the snow, avoid lifting it, and use a shovel that is right for your height and strength.
