Fall Safety Includes Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

Have you looked out your window lately? Because you may not like what you see. Sure, you liked them last weekend when you took that glorious ride through the mountains, but now that they are littered all over your yard, they don't seem very glorious anymore, do they? All of those beautifully colored leaves that once adorned the trees in your neighborhood seem to have found a new space on your lawn and in your gutters, and you know what that means now, don't you? It means a weekend of work. But before you head outdoors, you may want to think about some safety precautions you can take that will ensure your fall cleanup is disaster-free. And you can start with those precautions at The Joint Chiropractic.

Fall Safety Includes Chiropractic Care

Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want you to enjoy the fall weather, even when you are cleaning up your yard, so come on in for a quick adjustment! Chiropractic care can help you get your body ready for that afternoon of physical work and reduce the risk of muscle spasms, strains, tears, and nerve or joint injuries. Here's how.

  • Helps your body maintain its proper alignment
  • Reduces the tension and pressure on the back and neck muscles
  • Increases flexibility and range of motion
  • Improves stability and balance
  • Alleviates any pain and discomfort

Pain-Free Yard Work

One of the easiest and best ways you can avoid pain or injury while taking care of your yard is to see your local chiropractor but don't forget these other precautions as well. 

  • Stretch before you head outdoors
  • Practice proper lifting and carrying techniques
  • Carry smaller and lighter loads, even if it takes more time
  • Position your legs with one leg forward and one leg back when raking
  • Practice ladder safety
  • Use power tools if possible
  • Utilize the power tool's strap to maintain your center of gravity
  • Keep an eye on extension cords so you don't trip and fall over them
  • Take breaks, especially if using the same movement over and over again
  • Wear protective gear
  • Stay hydrated

False Sense of Security

Don't fall victim to that false sense of security that shows up just because you are in your front or back yard. Take the proper precautions needed to survive the cleanup and see your local chiropractor before you get started! The Joint Chiropractic has more than 475 locations to choose from, no appointments required, and weekend hours so it couldn't be any easier to do so.
