Chiropractic Southeast FL Happy Senior Folks

Every year, thousands of people develop a lower back injury. Gardening or other yard chores often results in a visit to their Southeast FL chiropractor. After months of being cooped up by the winter season, many are eager to get outside and tend to their yards in the spring.


Avoiding Back Injuries In Southeast FL

Back injuries are common, especially while carrying heavy things about the yard. While getting competent chiropractic care is always a good idea after such an injury, you should also consider how regular chiropractic care, together with standard safety practices when working in your yard, may help prevent some of these injuries.

There are several ways to avoid back injuries when working in your yard. The more fit you are, the less likely you are to develop a similar accident. Fitness is always a good notion, but it's more important while doing strenuous physical activities. Good muscle tone and flexibility will help you avoid unpleasant back issues.

Also, always lift appropriately. Always lift with your knees and maintain your feet shoulder-width apart. Never lift with your back. This is one of the main causes of back injuries. Using tools that work well for you might also help prevent back injuries. If you are a tiny person, utilize smaller equipment and avoid moving large objects alone.

If you experience stiffness in your back or have had a particularly stressful day, you may usually ease the tension by icing the muscles. Alternate ice and heat to lessen inflammation and then relax the muscles. Avoid applying ice directly to the skin and use heat reasonably.

Even if you aren't having any issues, you should see your chiropractor regularly. This can help you avoid a back injury or other accident while working in your yard.
