Take care of yourself through the holidays!
We will miss you while you’re gone! Here are a few tips to keep your spine healthy until you get back for your next adjustment!!!
Increase your water intake! 64oz +/day! (Keep those tissues hydrated) 😊
As always, don’t forget your stretches! (Ask the front desk for neck and low back stretch packets: do those 2x/day! They’re quick and effective and only take 10 minutes)!
20 minutes of ice on your neck & low back every night; roll up towel for neck. If traveling: get freezer bags to carry in car with you, fill up with crushed ice every time you go to gas station, apply to stiff areas)
Limit sweets intake! (More sugar, less fresh air, & less movement will lead to sickness) ☹
Careful with lifting! If you have to lift, use your legs and/or ask for help too!
Keep mobile! 20 min brisk walk/exercise daily to keep joints and ligaments in motion! (Too cold outside? Mall walking is great alternative!) 😊
