Ready to Map Out Your Summer? Take The Joint Along

By Sandy Schroeder

Summer always inspires travel. Your kids may be mapping out trips, and your spouse may have more ideas. You may have a few of your own, too. This may be the time to visit a national park, tour key cities, or visit grandparents.

As the weather warms and you pick dates, you may want to line up key health resources such as The Joint Chiropractic network of clinics that are available across the country.

Nationwide The Joint Chiropractic provides more than 400 clinics that are ready to help you with all of your health, wellness and fitness needs. Wherever you travel, everything is simpler with The Joint.

  • Affordable personal healthcare plans eliminate the hassle of insurance
  • Clinics are open weekends and evenings
  • Walk-in visits are welcome
  • No appointments are needed
  • Licensed chiropractors are on duty

As you travel, The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic can help you with your regular weekly adjustments, or assist with issues that come up during travel. When you stop by, your chiropractor can help with sprains, strains or other travel issues that can easily slow down a trip. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve aches and pains, and provide a fresh sense of wellness. Many people say they sleep better, feel more relaxed, and enjoy more energy.

Travel Tips

Wherever you are headed, here are some good safety tips from the American Chiropractic Association.

On the plane

  • Check bags that are more than 10 percent of body weight
  • Avoid twisting the spine when lifting bags into the overhead
  • Avoid pressure buildup in lower leg blood vessels with ankle pumps and aisle walks
  • Shift positions while sitting and cushion the neck and back
  • Avoid drafts from overhead air vents

In the car

  • Sit close to the steering wheel with knees slightly elevated.
  • Make sure you have good back, neck and head support
  • Flex your legs and feet while driving
  • Roll the shoulders forward and backward
  • Stop for coffee or overnight when tired
  • Avoid using phones except for directions

I have watched many families enjoy their summer travels touring cities, parks and water resorts across the country. With some careful planning and the ongoing support of The Joint’s nationwide network of clinics, they made a lot of great memories. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to start making your summer plans.
