Prep for Thanksgiving With Chiropractic Care
By Genevieve Cunningham
It’s almost that time of year for Americans. The time when we overeat, watch football, and spend quality time with friends and family. You guessed it: Thanksgiving! While this time of year is something so many of us look forward to, others are less than enthusiastic. It’s not because we don’t enjoy it, but rather that this particular season can wreak havoc on our health. To get yourself prepared for the season ahead, take a look at how adding chiropractic care to your normal routine can boost your health and protect you from some of the typical Thanksgiving pitfalls.
It’s Time for Serious Travel (and Back Pain)
Thanksgiving is the number one travel holiday of the year. More people will hop in the car or stand in line at the airport than at any other point in the year. So what does this mean for your health? Potentially, it could mean a lot of back pain. All of that time cramped in one seat, plenty of waiting and sitting, and a complete lack of movement for hours or even days is enough to make your back quite sore. Chiropractic care is great for easing back pain. The chiropractor will properly align your spine, and with continued care, they’ll keep it there. This helps to alleviate discomfort now, and it may help to prevent some of those pains from returning or from being at their worst during your busy travel season.
It’s Time for Overeating, Less Exercise (and Body Stiffness)
There is no denying that Thanksgiving means tons of food, most likely far more than any of us eat on a regular day. And since we’re most likely on the go, it also means less movement and exercise. For your health, this is bad for your weight as well as your flexibility. All of the food plus inactivity may mean your joints become stiff and painful. Chiropractors can help in this area by keeping the entire body in a properly aligned state, which also means an overall healthier state. Joint pain relief is one of the many positive side effects that many people claim after regular care. Begin treatment now, and you may help prevent that stiffness and improve the flexibility of your body in time for your day of indulgence.
