Enjoying the Outdoors with Your Family This Summer

By Debra Rodzinak

Summer is the favorite season of the year for many families.  Picnics, hiking, swimming, and family fun fill summer as it flies by in a blur of sunscreen, fireworks, and laughter.  Enjoying the outdoors with your family is a wonderful way to share time and build memories.

What is Your Ultimate Family Adventure?

Whether you enjoy the beach, a hiking trail, or the lake, getting outside while the sun is shining is the key to summer family time.  Joint and back pain can ruin any family outing.  Before you venture out with your family for the ultimate family adventure, ensure that your body will be able to handle the physical tolls with an adjustment from a trusted chiropractor.  If you find that you are already in pain and discomfort, an adjustment can also be useful for treatment of joint and back pain without the use of pain medications.  Summer is a time to reconnect with nature.  Shouldn’t your back and joint treatments be all natural too?

Where Will You Take Your Family Hiking?

A hike in the woods conjures up images of walking on a path with birds chirping, waterfalls, and the smell of pine.  Hiking can be so much more than just a walk in the woods.  Respect for nature and the woodland animals, conservation, and protecting the environment are things that you can teach your children during a hike.  Awareness of the environment around them instead of looking down at a phone screen builds a child’s understanding that the world is a wonderful place worth exploring.  Make sure that you are aware of whether your joints and back are “hiking ready” with a trip to The Joint for a gentle adjustment. 

What Outdoor Games Will Your Family Enjoy?

Jumping rope, water polo, or hide and seek are all fun outdoor games enjoyed during the warm summer months.  Enjoy the ultimate game of Double Dutch with proper spinal alignment.  Find out who is the fastest runner in your family.  Throw your hands up and do a silly victory dance after scoring a touchdown in a game of football.  Ensure that you can participate in all fun outdoor summer games with proper spinal alignment.

How Does Your Family Relax?

With all of the movement of summer activities, it is important to remember to take time to relax.  Crawl into a hammock, lay out by the pool, curl up under a shade tree with a good book, and visit The Joint for a relaxing, all natural adjustment.  Safe for all ages, the entire family can benefit from a personalized treatment plan and adjustment at The Joint.

Family plans are available at The Joint.  With no appointment times needed, walk-in with the entire family.  The Joint is open late and on the weekends so as not to interfere with your busy summer schedule of fun!
