A Trip to the Zoo Without Back Pain: Here's How

By Virginia Laird

With summer in full swing you are likely beginning to plan day trips for the family. One favorite place to spend the day for many families is the zoo. While this can be fun for the entire family, it can prove to be a long day for your feet and back. Chiropractors indicate that there are several things you can do to help prevent back pain from ruining your day at the zoo -- or anyplace where you do a lot of walking. A few of their tips include:

  • Bring a stroller along
  • Take breaks during your day
  • Wear comfy shoes

Bring a Stroller Along

For those with small children, a stroller can be super helpful in preventing and managing back pain. Rather than toting your young one from exhibit to exhibit, pushing them in a stroller can offer your back the break needed to keep pain at bay. Before you head out to the zoo with your family, make sure you toss a stroller in your car.

Take Breaks During Your Day

Any time you plan to be on your feet for an extended time, chiropractors suggest that you plan for plenty of breaks. During the breaks you should stretch and find a bench to get off of your feet. Chiropractors suggest that taking plenty of breaks during your time at the zoo can help prevent and manage back pain. When you head to the zoo, make sure you are not in a hurry and allow for time for plenty of time off your feet.

Wear Comfy Shoes

Chiropractors insist that wearing comfy shoes can help prevent back pain. For the most part, these are tennis shoes which provide cushion and support. Wearing the right shoes can be key in keeping back pain away as you enjoy your trip to the zoo.

If you are one who struggles to keep back pain away, it may be best to consider making routine chiropractic care part of your healthcare regimen. Research suggests that such care can be helpful in managing pain. Chiropractors use small adjustments to the joints of the spine to restore function and reduce pain. When you are ready to begin your routine care, drop by The Joint Chiropractic nearest you to get started on your pain prevention plan right away. With more than 450 locations nationwide you are sure to find one in your community. And with no appointment necessary, getting started is as easy as dropping by on your way home from work.
