Bleachers and Your Back
By Virginia Laird
It’s that time again! The smell of fall accompanies the season of football in almost every state across the nation. In Chandler, Ariz., things are no different, as evident by the invitation to play at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Texas just last November. Who could forget that game? The Chandler Wolves came back home with a win in the Geico State Champions Showdown. Whether you are a diehard football fan or just a proud, supportive parent, it matters not; bleachers can kill the back. Each game spent in the stands at a football field can be more painful than the next. There are a few tricks to beating such pain. Some of these include:
- Routine chiropractic visits
- Invest in a stadium seat
- Dress comfortably
Routine Chiropractic Visits
Anytime a person suffers with back pain, it can be a good idea to consult a chiropractor. Chiropractors can help to pinpoint the cause as well as assist in managing the pain. Using small adjustments to the spine, they help restore function, where it may be restricted. Routine visits can help prevent restriction from occurring as well as correct any issues which may already exist.
Invest in a Stadium Seat
When shopping for a stadium seat, there are many from which to choose. This is no place to be looking for the best bargain. It is best to find one that offers the most support, rather than the least expensive on the shelf. Chiropractors recommend using stadium seats when attending any function where there will be little to no back support.
Tight fitting clothes can prevent the natural movement of the body, causing pain to any part of the body which may be restricted. Chiropractors have long suggested people dress in comfortable, loose fitting clothes rather than some of the tighter fitting styles. This can help decrease back pain or even prevent it. Keep in mind, in the bleachers, the body needs comfy clothes to help offset the discomfort of the seats.

Whether you are heading to the football field to watch the Wolves fight for another victory, your child’s game, or a professional stadium, hopefully your next visit to the bleachers will be pain-free.
