Keep the Fun Going With Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

Jumping on a trampoline, cycling down a mountain, and playing a friendly game of basketball exposes the body to a number of hits, jolts, and falls, while planting and tending to the yard and garden can put extra stress on the muscles and joints in the lower back, hips, and knees. It's easy to see how a long day under the summer sun can cause the body to hurt, isn't it? Fortunately, the pain doesn't have to last very long. By heading in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic, you can start to feel better quicker than you ever imagined.

Chiropractic Care for Summer Fun

From swimming to hiking to golfing to gardening, there are plenty of movements your body makes that you need to watch out for, but don't worry! You won't be alone while doing so. Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic specialize in treating the issues that may come from them. Here's how chiropractic care can help keep the fun going this summer.

  • Places the body in proper alignment
  • Eases muscle stress and tension
  • Reduces inflammation and strain
  • Decreases joint pressure and stiffness
  • Restores joint and muscle function
  • Improves range of motion, flexibility, and stability

Tips From Your Local Chiropractor

You may also be able to decrease some of the aches and pains from your summer activities by incorporating the following suggestions from your local chiropractors.

  • Warm up - Warming up your muscles before engaging in any form of physical activity, including walking, is essential! Stretches and light movements will help relax the muscles and reduce the risk of soreness.
  • Use the proper form - Whether you are finishing up the yard work or hitting the greens, it is important to maintain proper form with your movements. Invest in ergonomically designed tools, avoid awkward twists of the body, lift correctly, and seek professional training to perfect your technique.
  • Take breaks - It may be hard to stop the fun and take a break, but it could be the best thing you do for your body! Before you head out for the next adventure, make sure you have given yourself plenty of rest since the last one, know your capabilities and limitations, and don't feel guilty if you have to decline an invitation.
