Our Kilian Chiropractic clinic serving Downtown Vancouver wishes you a fun and safe summer. Chances are you do take precaution, but you never know what could happen.
Common Summer Injuries Our Kilian Chiropractor Center Treats
You perhaps experienced boating accident whiplash or neck injuries or leg cramps while swimming. Otherwise, you could have a sore back from carrying too many travel bags. Our Kilian Chiropractic clinic sees people for these as well as muscle, tendon or joint sports and hiking summer injuries.
How to Maintain a Healthy life and a Fun Summer
Your Downtown Vancouver chiropractor advises you to follow luggage lifting tips when arriving at the airport, hotel or another location. If you have an oversized suitcase, bend with your knees and pull the luggage piece as close to your body as possible. Then, stand up and lift with your legs instead of your back.
Other ways to stay healthy this summer is to follow these outdoor play tips:
- Wear supportive shoes – You especially need proper shoes if you plan to run every day to prevent ankle and heel tendon ruptures.
- Stretch your muscles regularly – The American College of Sports Medicine recommends stretching each one of your major muscle groups two times a week for 60 seconds per exercise. Regular stretching, in fact, can keep your hips and hamstrings flexible as you advance in years.
- Rest for a few days to recover. For instance, if you just went kayaking then rock climbing and split some logs for firewood, you might want to rest for a few days.
