How to Avoid Back Pain While Camping

By Virginia Laird

Are you one who loves the great outdoors? Maybe you like to camp but find it difficult to do this often because of back pain. It is true that camping can cause back pain. However, chiropractors suggest there are many adjustments which can be made to the camping lifestyle which can help prevent such pain. Making just a few alterations can help you enjoy your weekend in the great outdoors with your family and friends without hesitation. A few of these tips include:

  • Invest in an air mattress
  • Make your shoe choice count
  • Stretch before physical activity

Invest in an Air Mattress

The thought of sleeping in a sleeping bag on the hard ground can be extremely unappealing, even for those who love to camp. Chiropractors advise that investing in an air mattress is a great way to help prevent back pain while on your camping adventure. This device offers some cushion between your spine and the rough ground. Before you head out on your next camping trip, be sure to pick up an air mattress.

Make Your Shoe Choice Count

While you may be tempted to grab your most worn out pair of shoes so that you don't run the risk of ruining your best tennis shoes, it is suggested to reconsider this decision. Chiropractors suggest that shoe selection can make the difference in those who suffer with back pain and those who have the ability to avoid it. These professionals advise that it is best to wear tennis shoes which offer plenty of support. These are shoes which allow you to move without restriction.

Stretch Before Physical Activity

Chiropractors always suggest it is best to stretch prior to participating in physical activity. This includes camping. Although many may not consider camping to be physically demanding, it does offer a host of activities which can cause trouble for the back. Chiropractors suggest that stretching before setting out on a hike, canoeing on the lake, or enjoying any other activity can help prevent back pain that can otherwise put a damper on your entire trip.
