Lower Back Injury and what you can do!

Every year thousands of people suffer some type of lower back injury. This often requires a visit to their chiropractor as a result of gardening or doing some other type of yard work. This happens a lot in the spring when people are anxious to get outside and tend to their yards after months of being penned indoors by the winter season.

It is relatively easy to injure your back, especially if you are moving heavy objects around the yard. While good chiropractic care is always one of the first things you should do after receiving such an injury, you also want to consider the fact that chiropractic care, which occurs on a fairly regular basis, may help to curb some of these injuries in the first place as does following some common safety precautions when you are working in your yard. Our team can help you improve your readiness for the spring season using Active Release Technique, Chiropractic Manipulation, home exercise strategies, and improving your stretching at home as well!

Very nice summation of Chiropractic at Harvard Health’s website!

Up until last year the “Chiropractic” write up on Harvard Health’s website was very bland and vanilla.  It was more or less a very basic article.  At some point in 2016, they updated it and it truly aligns with the feelings of our office and how we approach our piece of medicine!
