Protect Your Back While Enjoying Your Grandkids

By Virginia Laird

Summer tends to be the time that children flock to their grandparents’ house in search of a week of fun and adventure. While most grandparents love this precious time with their youngest fans, it can prove to be a difficult week. Life with the grandchildren will be more demanding, active, and strenuous on the body. For many, back pain may accompany the fun. Rather than allowing it to completely stop your plans, there are a few tips suggested by chiropractors to help you prevent and manage such pain. Some of these tips include:

  • Know your limits
  • Plan some activities ahead
  • Make chiropractic care a priority

Know Your Limits

One thing is certain, in all things, you need to know your limits. Trying to do more than you can do is a sure way to invite back pain to your party. Chiropractors advise that is it best to stop just short of your limit. While your grandchildren will be ready to go out and play tag, you may need to be the cheerleader for this activity. Skipping out on one game should not have you labeled a “party-pooper.” Instead, think of it as saving your back so that you will last the entire week on your feet.

Plan Some Activities Ahead

Before the grandkids arrive at your house, try planning a few activities. This is a great way to make sure a few of the things you will be doing are things that will not be problematic for you. Chiropractors suggest that, while you want to do whatever will make the grandkids happy, it is best to keep some of the activities simple.

Make Chiropractic Care a Priority

Like any other time you anticipate a seriously active lifestyle, in preparation for the grandchildren’s visit, it can be wise to begin visiting your chiropractor. Research suggests that chiropractic care can help manage and prevent back pain, and maintain flexibility. When used routinely, such care can eliminate the need for pain medication.
