3 Tips to Make Your Holiday Shopping Pain-Free

By Virginia Laird

Holiday shopping can last for weeks. For many, it takes a great deal of time to find the perfect gift for each person on your list. There are some who may struggle with back pain while trying to get the job done. Chiropractors teach that spending lengthy amounts of time on your feet can be the cause of a pain through the body, especially the back. Chiropractors have put together a list of things you can do to help keep such pain at bay as you spend hours on end shopping for the perfect gifts for those you love throughout December. Some of these tips include:

  • Make time to stretch throughout the day
  • Make a small purse part of your outfit
  • Consider routine chiropractic care

Make Time to Stretch Throughout the Day

Research suggests that those who spend a great deal of time on their feet can experience stiffness and soreness in the back and legs. Chiropractors advise that stretching throughout the day can help your body avoid extreme pain at time like this. It is recommended that light stretching, including touching your toes and releasing the tension in your back are helpful when trying to avoid back pain. The next time you find yourself roaming through the mall with back pain starting to get in your way, stop and stretch to help release the pain and tension.

Make a Small Purse Part of Your Outfit

Chiropractors stress that toting a heavy purse can put stress on your spine, which can lead to restriction and pain. While a smaller purse may not be your style of choice, there is merit in choosing to carry this purse. Research suggests that far too many stuff their purses with things which are unnecessary and weigh down the bag. Chiropractors suggest that carrying a smaller purse is a great way to help control the weight of your load. Simply put: A smaller purse cannot hold as much as a larger one, making your load lighter.

Consider Routine Chiropractic Care

With holiday shopping in full swing, you may be experiencing back pain which can put a damper on your shopping trips. Rather than dreading your next trip to the mall, consider giving chiropractic care a try. Chiropractors use small adjustments to the joints for the spine to help restore function and release tension. This can help keep you on your feet without pain. Some frequent chiropractic patients suggest that routine care is one great way to manage and prevent back pain.
