Four Ways That Chiropractic Care Can Help You Make The Most Out Of Your Summer

The first day of summer is finally here! And with it comes all the fun in the sun: swimming, biking, hiking, BBQ’s, boating, floating, beaches, camping… the list goes on and on.

And while we all try to pack the most into the few warm months that we get here in Vermont, it is important to remember not to neglect the health of your body. As we get busy, it becomes easy to get off track with our routine, including coming in for your regular adjustments.

But there are some essential reasons why you should continue to prioritize your chiropractic care during this busy season:

    1. Stress Reduction: with the kids out of school and the sun in the sky, summer usually means that we are all constantly running from activity to activity each day. Regular adjustments are a great way to help loosen tense muscles, relieve irritated nerves, and increase circulation, helping the body to relax and ultimately reduce the stress that a busy schedule can create (for more information, check out this article by The Joint Chiropractic).
    2. Restore Joint Health: after hibernating all winter, we all want to jump at the chance to get outside and move around. Being more active is great for your health but if your joints aren’t used to these new seasonal activities, you could end up experiencing more pain than pleasure. Luckily chiropractic care is not just for the spine! Adjusting some of the different joints in the body (neck, shoulders, knees, ankles, wrists) can help to alleviate tension and increase the joints overall mobility. Happy and healthy joints means that you can enjoy more of the outdoor activities that you love.
    3. Improve Digestion: with the busy summer season comes the tendency to eat out more often. Between BBQ’s, ice cream, and cold adult beverages, it is easy to fall off track with some of your regular eating habits. Chiropractic care has been shown to aid in reducing some of the inflammation in your body that can prevent proper digestion. Promoting consistent healing within the body can help to ease some of the symptoms that you may experience when diverting from your regular diet every once in a while.
    4. Increased Energy: living in Vermont we know that summer can come and go in the blink of an eye… so don’t let decreased energy keep you from making the most out of your summer. All of the improvements that we have already mentioned work together to help your body run more efficiently. And the better your body is running, the less energy that you are wasting. Chiropractic care can also aid in promoting better sleep, giving you the extra kick that you need to keep moving all summer long.
