Yard Work and Preventing Pain: 3 Tips You Need

By Virginia Laird

Yard work during the fall can prove to be a pleasant task. With the weather cooler than summer temperatures, spending time outside can reduce stress. Chiropractors advise that while you are soaking up the cool breeze, it is necessary to prevent back pain. Chiropractors have put together a list of tips to help you keep back pain at bay while getting your yard ready for fall. These tips include:

  • Take your time, avoid being in a hurry
  • Invest in the right tools
  • Stop by your chiropractor

Take Your Time, Avoid Being in a Hurry

Research suggests that being in a hurry to get your yard work done can encourage back pain. Rather than trying to work too quickly, it is necessary that you take your time to allow for breaks. During these breaks, chiropractors suggest that you stretch your back and get off your feet to help eliminate and prevent pain. Although you may want to get the entire yard done in a matter of hours, it is best to take your time.

Invest in the Right Tools

Although many believe that yard tools are one size fits all, this is far from the truth. Chiropractors advise it is best to try out a variety of tools prior to making the purchase. Checking for the right height of necessary tools can prevent you from the need to lean forward the entire time you are working in the yard. Research suggests that leaning forward for a long time can put a strain on your back leading to pain, and at times injury, which can lead to back pain.

Stop By Your Chiropractor

As you beautify your yard for all things fall, it is necessary that you take the necessary precautions to prevent back pain. This includes making routine trips to your chiropractor. Chiropractors use small adjustments to restore function to the spine. Research suggests that using chiropractic care on a routine basis can help prevent back pain as well as boost your immune system and promote good overall health. If you are ready to begin reaping the benefits of chiropractic care, drop by The Joint Chiropractic on your way home from work. With no appointment necessary, getting seen is as easy as finding the time to stop in. And with more than 400 locations nationwide you are sure to find one located near you.
