Ah, tis the season for gift giving and sending holiday greetings. For some, the hassles of gift giving are in the shopping - the parking, the lines, just missing the last perfect gift! Others, however, face hassles and pain when the gifts are home and ready to wrap. Gift wrapping seems like a fun, harmless activity after the bustle of shopping. What could be more fun that wrapping a surprise in colorful paper and ribbons? Likewise, who doesn’t enjoy writing notes to faraway friends to update them on the year’s activities? For people already suffering from arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, these joys can quickly turn to pain and swelling.
The team at Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists has a few tips to ensure that wrapping gifts and writing warm greetings doesn’t turn into a whopping pain:
SOS hopes you enjoy the little joys of the holidays, but if injuries occur, SOS PLUS After Hours Care is available. SOS PLUS is a walk-in orthopedic medical clinic that treats patients of all ages with acute orthopedic conditions requiring immediate attention. SOS Plus has two locations to best serve patients, at 5719 Widewaters Parkway in Dewitt and 5000 West Seneca Turnpike in Onondaga Hill.
