PUT THE SPRING BACK IN YOUR STEP….with help from your chiropractor

Summer is just around the corner(fingers crossed), and with that comes spring cleaning, gardening, and outdoor sports. It’s great to be active but after a looooong winter of inactivity it could mean an increased risk for injury—especially for your back.

The following are some general tips to help decrease your chance of injury:

• warm up for 5 to 10 minutes before any activity…march in place, walk around the block..whatever it takes to safely get the blood flowing to the muscles to warm them up.

• perform some mild stretches before starting your activity, and a more detailed stretching full body routine after

• when lifting bend at the knees, keep the item close to your body and avoid twisting at the waist when placing and object down

• if you do injure yourself apply ice to the area for 10-20 minutes and consult your chiropractor to determine the cause of, and if necessary, treat the area of pain.

Already a back pain sufferer? Well, you are not alone –approximately 8 out of 10 people will experience back pain at some point throughout their life. And if left untreated there is a high chance that it will reoccur. The good news is you don’t have to give up the activities you love. If you are currently experiencing back pain it is very important that you first reduce your symptoms.

Doctors of chiropractic specialize in caring for your back. They offer diagnosis of your problem in addition to a safe and effective treatment for back pain—all without a referral. They can also provide you with a back care routine designed specifically for you!

Remember, with back pain PREVENTION is key! With a daily flexibility routine combined with a strengthening program and regular visits to your chiropractor, you can substantially reduce your risk of injury. You’ll have a spring in your step and be able to enjoy summer to the fullest!
