Heading to the Ball Game: Try This to Avoid Back Pain
By Virginia Laird
Going to watch your children play in their games may be some of the most exciting parts of your week. Whether it is football, soccer, or any other sporting endeavor, time spent supporting your child is time well invested. However, sitting in the bleachers (or standing when there are none) may be quite another story, and painful too. Rather than allowing back pain to keep you from enjoying your child’s game, chiropractors offer several tips to help you avoid back pain while taking in the game, including:
- Always bring your own chair
- Dress comfortably, including your shoes
- Drop by your chiropractor
Always Bring Your Own Chair
As you follow your young athlete from location to location, chiropractors advise that it is best for you and your back if you bring your own chair. It is recommended that these chairs should be comfortable for you, as well as supportive for your back. Make sure to invest in a chair prior to your next outing to prevent back pain from taking over your love of watching your kiddo play.
Dress Comfortably, Including Your Shoes
Although it can be tempting to dress in a manner that makes you feel cute while at the ball game, it is advised by chiropractors to dress comfortably. Research suggests that wearing clothes which get in the way of just sitting comfortably and walking comfortably can cause back pain. One of the most important things to make sure is that you are wearing comfortable shoes. Before you head to your next game, make sure you're in a pair of comfy tennis shoes.
Drop By Your Chiropractor
Research suggests that routine visits to the chiropractor can help prevent back pain. If you are one who may suffer from back pain from time to time, or quite frequently, it is wise to engage routine chiropractic care. Chiropractors use adjustments to restore the spine to its least restrictive position. This allows for the release of tension as well as pain.
