With the arrival of the snow in the mountains, your outdoor activities have likely increased. You may be enjoying skiing, sledding, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating, or more! Even professionals have spills and falls when performing these types of activities. So it is expected that most people will experience several falls during the course of just one of these activities. Please be aware that these types of falls can create injuries from the impact of the fall as well as whiplash-type injuries to the neck.

Whether or not you have been working out or in training, this new activity is a change to your body and you are using different muscles in different ways. Extra pressure and strain are being put on your back and body, which can result in all sorts of problems and injuries.

How often should you get chiropractic adjustments? Don’t wait until you are in pain to set up a schedule for chiropractic adjustments! Adjustments to the spine can help you recover from injuries more quickly and can also help prevent them from becoming chronic.

A person's overall health is affected by the relationship between the body's structure and how it is functioning.  Chiropractic care ensures that the parts of the body are working together in harmony.  The spine acts as the main support for the body, protecting the spinal cord, which connects a large part of the peripheral nervous system to the brain. This is why a minor injury to the spine or overuse of muscles can significantly alter one’s strength, sensation, and performance.

Spinal manipulation for chronic low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions is the most common treatment sought by patients in the US. This has prompted researchers to study the effectiveness and safety of such treatments. The most recent finding confirms why chiropractic is important. The National Institute for Health (NIH) conducted a study that revealed that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for adults with acute, subacute, and chronic low back or neck pain, migraine, headaches, dizziness, and various joint conditions.

Are you wondering how to relieve your lower back pain?  The better question might be, “What can I do to prevent my lower back pain?” Almost everyone has low back pain at some point in their life. The good news is that most lower back pain will go away in a few days or weeks with some basic self-care. But if your pain continues for longer than a few weeks, look for a doctor of chiropractic who can find the cause and provide low back pain treatment.

Some people are afraid that doing too much may make their back pain worse. Most doctors would agree that, in most cases, performing your normal activities is good for you as long as you avoid activities that would make your back pain worse.
