The Sun Is Shining And It’s Gardening Season

Gardening Tips To Avoid Back PainWELLNESS TUNE-UPS ARE IMPORTANT SO THAT WE ARE ABLE TO GARDEN, GOLF AND ENJOY ALL THE ACTIVITIES SUMMER BRINGS!!

Here are Our 4 Rules to Successfully Treat Back Pain:

1. Don’t be afraid to have regular maintenance tuneups. 

Our bodies are like a fine car, you check the oil to ensure everything moves in perfect harmony. And like cars, our spines need “grease” or movement to prevent stiffening up. Our Spines require care to work in harmony with the rest of the body.  Chiropractic adjustments from Harbour City Chiropractic can help to keep the spinal fluid flowing and the discs hydrated for smooth movement.

2. Find out Why Your Pain Keeps Coming Back. 

If your back pain is not getting better then you need to ask yourself 2 questions: (a) Is the diagnosis correct?  and  (b) Are the muscles which support the spine strong enough? If the muscles which stabilize movement are not strong enough, you will be unable to hold your treatments until this is adressed properly.

3. Don’t treat Back Pain with Rest. 

Backs should be strong and flexible to allow you to carry out the activities you enjoy.  If you have given up gardening, golf and other activities you love doing for fear of reaggravating the pain, then the problem has not been corrected and you are really being held hostage by it.  Make an appointment to get back into Your Life!!

4. Don’t Let it Become Chronic!!Deal with the pain quickly.  Pain that lasts longer than 30 days or comes back “every now and then” becomes harder to treat as the muscles that support the spine become weakened.
