Summer Injuries and How Chiropractic Can Help

Summer is exciting. Vacations are happening, trips to the lake are a regular occurrence, and you are packing in as much swim time as possible. But with all these good times and physical activities, there is the potential for injuries – both major and minor. Here we will discuss some fairly common summer injuries, how you can work to prevent them, and what to do if they happen.

Whiplash

Whether it is caused by choppy waters and a speed boat, an unexpected ocean wave to the back, or a water balloon fight gone wrong, whiplash and neck strain are common during summer. Avoiding whiplash is hard to do, because it usually occurs after something unexpected happens. But strengthening the muscles of the neck and back can only help you reduce your risk of injury, so incorporate some weight training into your summer wellness workout. If you do experience whiplash or a similar injury to the neck, seek the help of a chiropractor as soon as possible. Chiropractors will realign the spine quickly, reducing the risk for long term damage, and accelerating the healing process.

Pulled Muscles

With all of your summer goings on, a pulled muscle is not our of the ordinary, especially if you are staying active. Summer sports, trips to the beach, and water workouts can lead to pulled muscles if you do not stretch and prepare accordingly. If you do pull a muscle, chiropractors can help relieve pressure by using adjustment techniques specific to the area.

Joint Inflammation

Joint inflammation is not necessarily unique to summer. It can occur any time of  year, but sometimes the extreme summer temperatures can cause old joint injuries to act up. Chiropractic is rooted in the idea of spinal and joint alignment, so logically, inflammation of the joints is something we know how to treat and treat effectively. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments is key to reducing your risk for inflammation and injury, because it helps maintain the health of your spine and encourages healthy nervous function.
