Are You Ready For That Hunting Trip?
By Tom Herrin
A lot of Americans participate in some type of shooting sport. Many of the popular seasons begin in Fall or Winter. This is a time when our bodies may become critically neglected as we prepare for that long awaited time off to enjoy the outdoors. A major component in the planning for such a trip should be doing something to get in shape. It is a great time to consider chiropractic. Why? Chiropractic can assist in focusing on joint and muscle health that is all-important as we leave the comfort of an indoor job to participate in an outdoor activity.
Covering Some Distance
It is sometimes necessary that we do some traveling on foot to get to just the right place. Neglecting some conditioning can be critical in some cases. Anyone spending time outdoors in the Winter should be prepared to move about safely in case of accident or other necessity. Moving on a new surface that may be uneven or pitted can be stressful on the body. Receiving an injury here could impair your ability to get to where you need to go or get help. Your chiropractor can help to prescribe some exercises that can help protect you from such injuries.
Holding That Position
Once you get where you are going, you may end up sitting still for quite a while. This may be a challenge in itself. Sitting still may cause the muscles to inflame for lack of movement. That stiffness tends to compound the longer it takes place. Trying to get relief for such stiffness when you are insufficiently prepared can be difficult and begin to put a damper on a long-planned trip. A chiropractic adjustment before leaving can complement a good exercise program to prepare your body to function at its best.
It Is Also Cold And Flu Season
Building up your natural immunities can be another help in planning an outdoor excursion. Going out well and returning sick can be discouraging to anyone. Your outlook on another such adventure may be dimmed considerably. Don’t let that happen. The Joint Chiropractic can provide help in preparing for all these things.
