Before you grab that ice scraper today, take a look at this!

We all know that you can really hurt yourself shoveling heavy snow, and the sheer amount of the white stuff that not only hit the ground yesterday and today is intimidating, but let's not forget about what falls on your vehicle, too! Sometimes that is just as big of a pain in the butt to clear off.

Portland chiropractor, Dr. Lou Jacobs has put together a handy video to show you how to scrape snow and ice off your car without causing back injury or shoulder pain. Yes, the idea of injuring yourself just cleaning off your car sounds crazy, but it does happen, especially when you think of all the stretching and leaning you do to reach that pesky snow.
