Chiropractic Care for Summer Fun

By Donna Stark

Although summer is typically associated with rest and relaxation, for many of us it can be quite the opposite. After all, the kids are home from school, the days are longer, and the weekends are always packed with one activity after the next. The truth is, summer can actually be extremely exhausting! But as much as you may want to sit down and do nothing, that doesn't mean you should ease up on your spine-healthy habits. Just ask your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic!

Chiropractic Care for Summer Fun

Even if your spine is the last thing you think about when trying to beat the heat and moving from one activity to the next, it's important to keep your focus on protecting it. Fortunately, that is easy to do when you have your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic by your side. Take a look at a few of their favorite tips on how to maintain optimal spinal health.

  • Get up and move - If you are sitting for extended periods of time while watching your children play, lounging by the pool, or taking a weekend road trip, be sure to take plenty of breaks. It's important to get up, stretch, and move your body at least every 30 minutes or so.
  • Pay attention to posture - In addition to paying attention to your posture while sitting, it's also important to do so when you are active. Make sure you are using the correct form while playing your favorite sports or while standing in those long lines at the amusement park. Distribute your weight evenly, keep your chin parallel to the ground, and pull your shoulders back.
  • Stay hydrated - If you are not drinking the recommended amount of water every day, you could be setting yourself up for some serious back pain and discomfort. That's because the joints in your spine need all the water they can get to stay lubricated, so drink up!
  • Get adjusted - Routine chiropractic care is one of the easiest and best ways to improve and maintain the overall health of your spine. The adjustments your chiropractor provides can help alleviate pain, encourage proper alignment, correct posture, and restore function to both the spine and nervous system.

Maintaining a Healthy Spine

If you don't know why a healthy spine is important, it's time to learn! Head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic and ask them to explain. It won't take long for them to help you understand why it is key for optimal health and wellness, no matter what season of the year it is.
