Chiropractic Care for the Amusement Park Fan
By Donna Stark
Did you know that National Roller Coaster Day is being celebrated this month? Have you purchased your tickets to your local amusement park yet? Well, if not, you might want to go ahead and jump on that, but before you head out for your day of fun, you may also want to plan on seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic for an adjustment. Because whether you are the type of person who loves the thrill of the coasters or the type who likes to keep their feet firmly on the ground while taking pictures, it would be wise to get your spine and neck prepared for what lies ahead.
Keeping Pain Away From Your Fun
Even though it is easy to have fun at an amusement park, it is just as easy to walk out of one tired, sore, and sometimes, in pain too. From those crazy coasters to the rides that swing to the dizzying, spinning teacups, your body definitely gets tossed from one position to the next. And even if you're not being tossed around, there's a good chance you are spending the day craning your neck watching your loved ones go through that torture. It's no wonder so many people experience aches and pains after a day at the park but fortunately, your chiropractors are here to help. Take a look at their favorite tips on how to reduce the risk of pain.
- Take each ride's caution sign seriously
- Don't go on extreme rides if you have an existing back problem
- Stretch throughout the day
- Keep yourself hydrated
- Take plenty of breaks
- Wear appropriate footwear
Chiropractic Care for Amusement Park Fun
Seeing your chiropractor before you head to an amusement park is a great way to be proactive! In addition to placing your body in proper alignment and easing the tension in your muscles, your chiropractor will also be able to advise whether there are any types of rides you should go out of your way to avoid. And if you do end up getting tossed around a bit too much and are feeling some pain in the days after, your chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help with that too!
National Roller Coaster Day is right around the corner and fortunately, so is The Joint Chiropractic. So go ahead and make your plans to have fun but don't forget to see your chiropractors first! It could make all the difference in the world.
