Why You Need Summer Chiropractic Care

Summer is a season most people look forward to, but it’s also filled with pain! Outdoor activities, from sports to gardening and swimming, can result in injuries or discomfort. When summertime pain strikes, is chiropractic care the answer?

Common Summer Injuries

In the summertime, there are a handful of common injuries:

  •  Rotator cuff injury – Your rotator cuff is the part of your shoulder that helps rotate your arm. In the summer, repetitive movements involved in swimming, gardening, or playing sports can cause injury to the rotator cuff, making movement painful.
  • Plantar fasciitis – The plantar fascia is located on the bottom of the foot. People who do a lot of running or walking can injure the fascia, causing inflammation and pain.
  • Knee injuries – Many outdoor activities can lead to a muscle imbalance in the legs, resulting in knee injury and pain.

How summer chiropractic care can help!

  • Chiropractic adjustments – An adjustment done by a chiropractor can remove joint dysfunction and restriction, allowing your body to work as it should. These adjustments help to improve mobility, loosen tight muscles, and help your body to recover from injuries sustained in summer.
  • Nutrition – Are you eating all your fruits, vegetables, and hydrating properly during the summer? Your chiropractor can help you understand how important proper nutrition is to your health and how it can help your body to heal.
  • Exercises – Certain exercises or stretches can help your condition improve and prevent future injury.
  • Lifestyle – Chiropractors understand how making simple and small changes to your habits and behaviors can improve your overall health and help you to avoid injury.
