| Summer is finally here! Put on your swimsuit, throw on those flip flops, and head outside for nice weather. The summer season is when most people decide to travel or be active. However, it’s also the season when your body can be under a lot of pressure! Especially if you were not active in the winter time. Chiropractic care can help to keep your body in balance and pain-free. Read below for more why you need chiropractic care in the summer months! Summer Travels Many people decide to take vacations during the summer months. Whether it is the beach or the mountains, long road trips and time spent in the airports is common. During days of strenuous travel, the body is put into positions that are not always normal. Sitting for long periods of time can cause pinched nerves and tense muscles. So can walking long distances through airports or amusement parks. Visiting a chiropractor for treatment before and after travel can help to alleviate such issues. Summer Activities Summer also brings longer daytime, which extends the window of opportunity for fun outside activities. Whether it is volleyball, boating, swimming, hiking, or camping, being active can cause additional stress that your body may not be used to. If you are going from a sedentary or inactive lifestyle through the winter months to an extremely active lifestyle, this can shock your body and your muscles if you’re not careful. When the body is in shock for activities that aren’t part of your normal routine, muscles can become tight, and in extreme cases, cause damage through tearing or serious injury. By visiting a chiropractor, you can relieve stress and tight muscles. A chiropractor can also help you to undo tension that may occur in your neck, shoulders, and back.
