Friday Nights and Football: How to Protect Your Back
By Virginia Laird
It is almost football season! High school athletes across the nation are preparing for the season opener. While these athletes get excited for their games, parents may be dreading their impending time spent in bleachers. Chiropractors have provided several tips to help those who will be attending these games as fans sitting in the stands. Some of these tips include:
- Invest in a stadium seat
- Take a trip to the concession stand
- Make a visit to your chiropractor a priority
Invest in a Stadium Seat
If you are one who follows your favorite athlete from one football field to the next, you may be spending plenty of time in the bleachers. Sitting for long periods of time can be painful. Chiropractors advise those who find themselves in the stands often should invest in a stadium seat. These can offer back support to encourage you to sit up straight and use good posture while cheering on your team. These can be found in a variety of colors and styles, thereby making it easy for your to get one in the colors of your favorite football team.
Take a Trip to the Concession Stand
While you may not want to consume too much of the concession stand food, taking a break from the bleachers and walking can help release tension in the back. Chiropractors advise that it is wise to stretch (and always use good posture) during the game. If you are one who prefers to avoid the temptations of the concession stand, consider finding something to do that can allow you to stand and stretch at some point during the game.
Make a Visit to Your Chiropractor a Priority
Another way to help your back make it through the weekly game is to make chiropractic care a priority in your life. While many believe this is only for those who struggle with severe pain and injury, this is not the case. Chiropractic care can help prevent injury and pain. If you are ready to give this care a try, locate The Joint Chiropractic near you to get started right away. There are no appointments necessary, making it easy to drop by on your way home from work or on the way to your next football game.
