Tis the season for the holidays, food, family and cheer! And for many a stressful time of year. While there is so much to be grateful for, it is also easy to get wrapped up in everything and forget to take care of your own health.
Everyone knows the holidays can be stressful: Dealing with family members you disagree with, finding money to pay for gifts, traveling and being stuck in airports or being alone if you have lost loved ones. Everybody has a different reasons but the end result is the same. Your body deals with stress by tensing up, headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, low back pain etc. Many people “throw their back out” every year around the holidays because they are stressed out and neglect their body. You need to put yourself first once in a while, fix the cause of the problem and get adjusted to treat and prevent injuries from happening repeatedly. Chiropractic is powerful and helps deal with stress on the body.
Are you the type of person who goes out hunting for the perfect tree? Do you have boxes of heavy decorations up in the attic or out in the garage? Do you perform circus-type acrobatics trying to hang the Christmas lights? Decorating itself can cause some injuries if we are not careful. Don’t be a Christmas casualty this year. If you overdo it by hanging Rudolph on the roof, you need to get yourself checked out.
