A Chiropractor's Christmas Guide List

By Brandi Goodman 

Christmas may be a time for cheer but it's also a time for pain in many households. Too many people don't exercise as much caution as they should when performing certain holiday tasks. This leads to sore backs, pulled muscles, unexplained aches, and worse. With a chiropractor's Christmas guide list you can better manage your discomfort level as you attempt to get things ready for this major holiday.

Chiropractic Tips for Travel

You may spend a portion of your holidays traveling. No matter which method of transportation you'll be using it's important to keep some chiropractic tips in mind. Sitting for long hours can lead to back pain. Use a lumbar support cushion in your vehicle and even on a plane or train so you can keep your back supported and pain-free. You'll also want to stretch before heading out so your body is prepared for the trip.

Chiropractic Tips for Decorating

Chiropractors and other doctors see lots of patients during the holidays. Falls and mishaps are common while decorating. Be sure you're being careful when hanging things on your roof especially. Use a ladder and have someone else available who can hold it in place. Keep a tool belt on your waist filled with your supplies so you have things in reach and don't need to extend yourself to get to them.

Chiropractic Tips for Cooking

Lots of families spend a significant portion of their holidays in the kitchen. Baking cookies and other desserts and concocting a full feast for a gathering is usual around Christmas. You need to be careful when cooking for long intervals however. Chiropractors suggest standing at a surface to cut up veggies and handle other cooking tasks that people usually do sitting. Sitting over the table can lead to reaching and hunching that can hurt the back. You may also want to stand on a rubber mat so you can take some of the tension off your legs from the hard floor.

The holiday season can be more cheerful and less painful if you know what you're doing. Following a chiropractor's guide list to handling Christmas will help you to make the most of the season without experiencing any of the pain. If you still have trouble, be sure to visit The Joint Chiropractic at one of their more than 500 locations for help.
