With summer in full swing, everyone’s outdoor activities have surely increased. You may be painting the house, laying a new patio, hiking or biking, playing tennis, swimming, boating, or golfing, just to name a few! All this activity has probably been a big change for your muscles, whether or not you worked out or trained over the winter months. Extra pressure and strain are being put on your back and neck, which can result in all sorts of problems or injuries. These problems can be alleviated with the right chiropractic adjustments.
But you may be wondering just how chiropractic adjustments can help you? The key is to not wait until you are in pain to set up a schedule for chiropractic adjustments! Chiropractic adjustments to the spine can help the body recover from injury or strain naturally by ensuring the body is in proper alignment and free of interference.
In a study published by Michigan State University a few years ago, it was found that the most common injury for adults during the summer months is car accidents. Following close behind in second place was activities using sports equipment with wheels, such as skateboards, scooters, bikes, rollerblades, and all the other “toys” that are on the market today.
Take a minute to think about your young children and teenagers who may spend most of their day outside on swings, bikes, and scooters. During the course of the day, they are prone to falling many times. These types of falls can create injuries from the impact of the fall as well as whiplash-type injuries to the neck.
The goal of chiropractors is to correct the body’s alignment and help their patients maintain good health. Along with chiropractic adjustments, advice about proper nutrition and exercise also play a large role in chiropractic care.
To ensure the rest of your summer is full of fun and laughter, not injury and pain, keep up with your regular schedule of chiropractic adjustments.
