Preventing Injuries During Summer Activities
After being cooped up all winter, most people are ready to be more active as the weather gets warmer. When people try to do too much too soon, injuries can happen. If you have not been very active for a while, it may be a good idea to come to see us at West Buffalo Chiropractic to get your muscles and joints properly aligned. Chiropractic treatment will help your muscles relax and will get you warmed up for summer activities.
What Chiropractic Care Can Do
Regular visits to your chiropractor can keep your body in alignment and good shape. This can help with injuries and can even prevent some injuries. When you feel pain it may be caused by over-exertion, or from repetitive movements that are not natural. Listen to your body, and slow down when it tells you it needs a break. Your chiropractor can help keep your body in tune so you can enjoy your summer activities.
Common Summer Injuries
- General back pain: Back pain is one of the most common injuries, especially for bike riders and golfers. Lack of a proper warmup is often the cause, as well as overdoing it. Warming up and knowing your limits can help keep the pain away.
- Lower back and neck pain: This type of pain is caused by keeping your body in an unnatural condition for a long period. Cycling or kayaking can cause this type of injury. Chiropractic care can help soothe the muscles and keep your body in shape for future activities.
- Golfer or tennis elbow: It is not the sport itself that causes this injury, but repetitive use puts a lot of strain on the elbow and can cause pain to develop. Rest and exercise can help, and there are support devices that work to ease the strain put on your body.
