This holiday season, we know there is a lot of stress over keeping the house clean for visitors, decorating, buying presents, figuring out parking lots during holiday sales — it can all begin to weigh heavily on a person! Sometimes all those activities can cause unwanted and consistent back pain–adding even more stress to an already stressful time. Our chiropractors want to give out some tips to avoid back pain this season. If you already have back pain, our Charleston, SC chiropractors can see you quickly — same day appointments are usually available and no referrals are needed! Call Alpha Care at (843)824-2273 or contact us online.
Stop Back Pain
Lift With Your Knees
Carrying heavy decoration boxes up and down stairs is a staple of the holidays. Always remember to lift those heavy boxes with your knees, instead of putting all the weight on your back.
If the tree is to heavy, get help. If the box is too heavy, get help. Use all that family staying with you help you carry heaviest holiday pieces and ease some of the stress on your joints and back.
Remember To Rest
Here in Charleston, we (thankfully) don’t have to worry too much about shoveling snow which can be extremely hard on your back, but it’s important to remember to rest when you’re doing heavy activity. Giving your back a rest reduces the likelihood of a sprain.
