With all the new snow in the mountains, many people have probably increased their type and level of activities. With these increased activities, such as skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or snowshoeing, just to name a few, the probability of falls has significantly increased as well. Whether or not you have been 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. In addition, falls can create injuries from the impact as well as whiplash-type injuries to the neck.
How many times should you go to the chiropractor? At the very least, after your initial consultation, you will want to continue chiropractic services on a monthly basis. This will help keep your spine flexible and moving, balance the muscles and strengthen the discs, tendons, and ligaments. Subluxations may occasionally occur just from the stress of life, but they can easily be released.
Don’t wait until you are in pain to set up a schedule for chiropractic services! Spinal adjustments can help you recover from injuries more quickly and can also help prevent them from becoming chronic. Regular spinal adjustments will help the body recover naturally from acute injury or strain by ensuring the body is in proper alignment and free of nerve interference.
So that you can finish out winter full of fun, not pain, take care of small, irritating spinal problems before they becomes increasingly painful and persistent.
