03 Apr How Chiropractic Care Can Prepare You for Spring
Spring is here!
That means more sun and longer days. While you might be inclined to rush outside to take in these first days of spring, your body might not be ready to adjust so quickly.
At Hendrick Wellness Center, our McAllen chiropractors would like to give you some insight on how chiropractic care can really give you that extra spring in your step this season. Get ready to fully enjoy that beautiful south Texas weather.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Fully Enjoy Spring
The warmer weather and sunny days can really boost your mood. But trying to enjoy that sunshine can cause you a serious injury as we tend not to be as active during the winter months – especially older individuals. Our joints, tendons, muscles, and bones may need a little boost to get them functioning as they should.
According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the most commonly injured joints and areas are the knees, shoulders, ankles, and spine. Approximately 30 million doctor visits take place every year due to knee and shoulder injuries.
These injuries are preventable though, especially with chiropractic care. Whether you are enjoying a simple bike ride or participating in an activity that’s a little more grueling, chiropractic care can help to reduce strains on your joints and muscles.
In fact, our McAllen chiropractors can help to identify any issues that can cause an injury to occur. They can also provide you with some ideas for the best exercises to keep you healthy.
At Hendrick Wellness Center, we can help you enjoy the season by helping to alleviate the following conditions:
- Whiplash (cervical spine/strain)
- Back sprains/strains
- Spine injuries (cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions)
- Pinched nerves of the neck or back
- Joint/muscle dysfunction associated with osteoarthritis
- Spinal stenosis
- Frozen shoulder, strains/sprains
- Piriformis syndrome
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
Whether you’re walking, running, bike riding or doing any kind of sports, there is always the possibility of injury. By making an appointment with our experienced McAllen chiropractors, you can find comfort in knowing we can help to protect your body while you enjoy that beautiful spring breeze.
Alongside preventing injuries, chiropractic care can also help to alleviate pains and tightness associated with stress. We can help to reduce joint and muscle aches and pains, which can boost your energy and mood levels. Naturally, the better you feel, the more you’ll be able to do, and the more you’ll be able to relish in that gorgeous spring weather.
