Enjoy the Hunt With Chiropractic Care
By Genevieve Cunningham
It’s that time in Texas. The cooler weather is rolling in and hunting season for many animals has begun. This is the time of year when many people cram their weekends with early mornings in the deer stand, wading in water waiting for duck, or prepping their gear for their next hunting adventure.
While hunting season brings its own special appeal and excitement to its own group of people, it also brings a few health problems. The most common complaint is that of back pain. Hunting, at least many kinds of hunting, is a very still, motionless sport for hours on end. This lack of movement and repetitive positions can lead to a stiff and sore back. Because of this, it’s thought that the average hunter may benefit from getting regular chiropractic care. Check out how adding this form of care to your routine can boost your health and keep your hunting excursion enjoyable.
Why Hunters Need Care
Hunters come in all shapes and sizes. Male, female, big, small, tall, short. It’s definitely not an exclusive sport. But there are a few things that most hunters have in common. One common theme? Hunters do a lot of waiting. You set up your spot, and then you wait. You see an animal, but it’s not big enough or old enough, and so you wait. This means, as mentioned above, a lot of sitting or standing in the same position. And almost any repetitive motion means both back and neck pain aren’t far behind.
What is a Chiropractor’s Job?
So, what can a chiropractor do? A chiropractor will help you keep your spine properly aligned. They’ll do this through spinal manipulation, which means they’ll “pop” your vertebrae back into their proper location. It doesn’t generally hurt, and on the contrary, it almost always leaves a sense of relief. With ongoing care, the chiropractor may be able to keep the pain far away by continually aligning the spine. This means that you may be able to prevent back pain from now through the end of the season.
The Many Benefits of Care
Besides back pain, what other benefits are available? Regular care might bring about mental clarity, increased flexibility, fewer headaches, an improvement in the immune system, and many other positive side effects. Whether you like to hunt or not, these benefits mean a healthier, more productive, and often happier way of life.
