Summer Fun and Visiting a Chiropractor
When warm weather emerges, many people take to the outdoors for some fun in the sun. Unfortunately, summer injuries can arise when activities are being conducted. If you are suffering from an injury, contact Campion Chiropractic in College Station to meet with our chiropractors for pain treatment options that do not require medication. Read on to learn about common summer injuries, how to avoid them, and how chiropractic care can help.
Common Summer Injuries
There are several injuries that can occur when you spend time outdoors. If you like to garden or landscape, you may suffer from lower back or neck pain from bending and keeping your body in one position for a long duration of time. Sporting activities can lead to muscle sprains, back, shoulder, or neck pain, or headaches.
How to Avoid Injuries This Summer
It is best to warm up before you spend time exerting energy. Stretching your body and doing some light calisthenics will prime your body for movement. This helps to reduce the chance of muscle strains. Make sure you know the rules of any type of sport before you engage in participating. Wear protective clothing and gear at all times you are engaging in a sport. If you are doing work outdoors, be sure to have the right tools on hand and know how to use them properly. It is also best to drink plenty of fluids.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
When you suffer from pain and discomfort caused by a summer activity, chiropractic care can help to reduce discomfort effectively. Dr. Sehorn and Dr. Campion will evaluate your specific injury and use spinal adjustments, soothing therapies, myofascial soft tissue work, Graston, cold laser therapy and exercise to strengthen muscles and reduce joint stress. You may need a few sessions to effectively heal the injured area of your body. We provide noninvasive treatment without the use of medication.
