Chiropractic Care for Winter Injuries

By Donna Stark

Do you want to avoid increasing your risk of winter injuries this year? You could just stay home and sit on your couch every day if you do, but you already know that is not a viable solution. There is work to be done and fun to be had so you have to keep your body moving! Fortunately, there are ways you can do so and still be extra safe about it. Take a look at the following tips from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Shoveling Snow

Snow may look as light as a feather as it is falling from the sky, but when it comes time to clear your driveway, it's a whole different story! Snow can be very heavy to shovel, sometimes with each load weighing several pounds! And if it is wet or mixed with ice, the heavier it will become. It is very important to warm your muscles before you head out to shovel with some stretches or light exercises and to shovel smaller, lighter loads. It's also to your benefit to use proper lifting techniques and to avoid any abnormal twists of the body.

Winter Sports

It's always fun to head to the mountains or the rink for some winter fun but be careful while engaging in those winter sports, especially if your body is out of shape. Skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and ice skating are ripe with danger if you aren't careful and may even lead to significant injuries. Make sure you warm your body up before you head out and use the proper technique and form to reduce your risk of getting hurt.

Walking

You wouldn't necessarily think that walking is dangerous, but it can be if the paths you take are covered in snow, slush, and ice. The best way to avoid any slips and falls is to wear weather-appropriate shoes with good traction, clear your sidewalks of snow and ice, and maintain a firm grip on stair railings.

Chiropractic Care for Winter Injuries

Even with the safety tips above, accidents can still happen, so if you find yourself in pain after experiencing a fall or an injury, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain, ease muscle tension, correct joint dysfunction, and reduce inflammation. They can help speed the healing and recovery process too so you can stay in motion and continue to get things done. And, since chiropractic care is completely all-natural, there really is no better way to heal your body!
