It's All Fun and Games Until Back Pain Shows Up

By Genevieve Cunningham

Summer is a time for fun. It's a time to hang out with friends, stay up a little too late, travel to new places, and enjoy a little time off. Most people very much enjoy their summertime. In fact, sometimes it seems all fun and games and less work than ever -- until back pain shows up. When back pain rears its ugly head, the fun and games aren't as quite so fun anymore. Luckily, you can find relief and keep your summer both healthy and a ton of fun. If you would like to make it through summer (and all year) with less pain, take a look at these risky activities and some tips for feeling your very best.

Amusement Parks

Amusement parks are fun for the whole family. The rides, the food, the souvenirs. But all of that time on your feet can cause or exacerbate back pain. You may leave the park at the end of the day with a backache, a crick in the neck, and achy joints. So even though it was tons of fun, now it hurts! Luckily, there are ways to increase the fun, decrease the pain, and make the entire trip more enjoyable. 

Family Day at the Zoo

A family day at the zoo seems pretty risk-free, right? For the most part, it is! But this is another time when you'll be on your feet all day long. And all of that time standing and walking can put a strain on our backs! Once again, there are things we can do to minimize the pain. Besides taking frequent breaks and staying hydrated, we can also use the tips below. 

How to Stay Pain-Free

  • Exercise - Exercise is a way to keep the body strong and flexible. The stronger and more flexible we are, the easier it is to participate in various activities without discomfort. If you want to be active, you have to work for it beforehand! Start an exercise routine, and do it multiple times per week. As you stretch, build muscles, and improve range of motion, you may find that your active life becomes much more comfortable and much more fun as well. 

  • Chiropractic care - Chiropractic care can help boost overall health and make activity easier all at the same time. When we get regular care, the chiropractor is able to remove tension from the spine, reduce pain, and bring other benefits to your health. When our bodies have less pain and our overall health improves, movement and activity are not only easier, but they're also more enjoyable. And the best part is that chiropractic care is easy! Go to the clinic, listen to the chiropractor's advice, and follow through! It's one of the easiest and most effective ways to feel better in your own body every day.
