Ball Games and Back Pain: 3 Tips to Try

By Vrignia Laird

Football, volleyball, baseball, soccer, or whatever sport your children enjoy, you are likely chasing them around the state (or so it seems) from ball field to ball field. For many parents, it is the thrill of a lifetime to watch your children do what they love. While you may enjoy it, there can be drawbacks. For starters, sitting in the bleachers for days on end and hours at a time can lead to a great deal of back pain. Chiropractors recommend a few tips to help you avoid such pain while cheering for your favorite teams this season. These include:

  • Find time to stand and stretch 
  • Wear the right clothing 
  • Bring back support 

Find Time to Stand and Stretch 

Because sitting for an extended period of time can add stress to the back, chiropractors encourage patients to find a minute to get up and stretch during the game. Although you may be thinking this means you need to bring a yoga mat and get sweaty, this is not the case. Simple stretching of the back and neck can help release tension, which can manage back pain. Consider giving this a try during the next game you find yourself sitting in the stands. 

Wear the Right Clothing

Chiropractors say that wearing comfy clothing is best when you are settled into the bleachers. This often means to wear loose-fitting clothing because tight clothing can hamper the body's ability to move naturally, leading to back pain. If you are one who prefers to be stylish at these games, make the choice to wear your newest spirit gear and tennis shoes and you will fit right in. 

Bring Back Support

Another tip that chiropractors suggest is to bring your own back support for the bleachers. For many, this is in the form of a stadium seat. These are seats that are built to fit on the bleachers. For those looking for a good seat, drop by your local sporting goods store where you should be able to find a stadium seat in your team's colors.

For the many who are ready to put back pain in the past, it is high time to make routine chiropractic care part of your pain management plan. Chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic work with you to establish a plan to prevent and manage your pain. With more than 475 locations nationwide, you are sure to find one in your community. And with no appointment necessary, dropping by can get you started when you need it most.
