Back Pain From Too Much Fun In Olympia WA

The sun is beginning to shine much brighter and the heat waves are coming more and more frequently. That's right! It's summertime in Olympia WA! And, lucky for us, it doesn't get as hot in Washington as in other states. Which means everybody can go out and enjoy what little sun we get here in the Pacific Northwest. But be careful, while some might think there's no such thing as " too much fun" your body might think otherwise. Here at our clinic in Olympia WA we are here to help you prepare for the strain that your body is going to be under during this upcoming fun filled three months of summer activities.

Going water skiing in Olympia WA?

Your arm, back, and leg muscles are going to be put to the test as you try to stay balanced above water while being dragged by a speed boat. You're not always going to be able to stay up and you're going to take some serious wipeouts. At Evergreen Family Chiropractic the doctor is here to help but your spine back into alignment and our experienced massage therapist will help release those twisted and knotted up muscles.

Enjoy tent camping?

The ground can be a very unforgiving place to lay your head at night. Even with an air mattress and a decent pillow, it just isn't the same as your comfortable bed at home. Your neck is going to be bent in odd angles for long periods of time during the night and pressure is going to be put on different points in your spine as you toss and turn throughout the night. At Evergreen Family Chiropractic, the doctor can show you proper ways to support your spine and joints when sleeping to help minimize the pressure on your hips, spine, shoulders, and neck. This way you can get a proper night sleep to enjoy the great outdoors.

Love going on long hikes?

Hiking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air, seeing what nature has to offer. It's important to have a proper backpack that fits you and distributes the weight of your pack properly on your shoulders and waist. It's also crucial that you get proper hydration so that you can stay focused and energized on those long and challenging trails. It's also very important to have good fitting shoes that support your feet. As you walk, all those steps send forces up your legs into your back. Without properly supportive shoes, this force can cause a lot of discomfort in your knees, hips, and lower back.

Summer is going to be a lot of fun but remember to stay hydrated. It's really easy to get caught up in all the excitement and forget that you are constantly losing water through sweat and even through your breath.

At Evergreen Family Chiropractic, we love the summer and we are excited to help you keep your body in shape so that you can love the summer as well. Make an appointment today and come see us soon.
