Summer… beaches, hiking, sunsets, outdoor sports. All great things to do during the summer months when it is nice and warm out. But, some of those activities require travel, sometimes l-o-n-g travel by car, plane or boat.
Those long travel plans means a long time sitting in one position (or trying to sit in one position) and that is not good for your health or your back.
No problem, if you take care of yourself with chiropractic care during summer.
Whether you’re staying in Tennessee or taking a trek to Florida, summer is a popular time to take a trip. However those long traveling hours can really cause back pain and stiffness from sitting so long. It is recommended you stop, at least briefly, every couple of hours, get out of the car and stretch for a few minutes. If you are on a plane, and it is safe/allowed to do so, you should do the same. Although getting off the plane while in-flight, not a good idea!
Chiropractic care during summer can help prevent travel-induced back pain. Customized chiropractic care will help you to address the pain in a non-invasive, safe way. Why only take care of you? Your family should have their own chiropractic adjustments so the whole family can have fun together.
Even if you don’t travel this summer season you might be tempted to just lounge around under the shade of an oak, or sip iced tea on the porch. Be careful of excessive heat and make sure you stay hydrated and relatively cool. Don’t forget, sitting around relaxing is good. However, prolonged sitting can also further trigger knee pain and back pain.
Keep yourself well adjusted, flexible and fluid with routine chiropractic adjustments.
Exercises, sports, and other fun activities are great! But that twisting, turning and crashing into your teammates can definitely affect your overall spinal health. Again, hydration is very important and to continue playing those fun games without the pain and stiffness, include chiropractic care as one of your must-follow summer healthcare tips.
Proper, regular chiropractic care is the natural method to help you and your body stay safe while enjoying the fun games of summer.
Getting in the pool is a great way to stay cool (although watch out for sunburn – water is very reflective). Being in the water is very good for your spine and body because it reduces the effect of gravity on your bones. Plus, while swimming, all your main muscle groups are active and the resistance of the water helps to maintain your muscle tone.
From the crawl stroke to the back stroke your spine helps you with all those twists. Routine, regular chiropractic care keeps your body flexible so you can keep on swimming.
Gardening is a good way to eat healthy – you know what is in your food. Although it can be a relaxing time for your mind, body and back in particular can be under a lot of strain. Let proper regular chiropractic care sessions take care of that for you so you can garden as long as you want.
