Christmas is coming and it’s time to hit the shops! But don’t let your back pay the price! Festive shopping sprees have a lot to answer for when it comes to back pain, so our Chiropractor in Staines has some top tips to keep your back safe this year:
1: Don’t leave your shopping until the last minute – and try not to do it all at once! Carrying lots of heavy bags will put extra strain on the joints, ligaments and muscles in your spine, which could lead to back pain!
2: Try to park as close to the shops as possible so that you don’t have to walk as far with your shopping bags. Again, this will lessen the load on your spine.
3: Take your time whilst Christmas shopping and plan your trip in advance. If you can, choose a quiet period to avoid the hustle bustle and long queues. Remember that increased stress can lead to more tension in your joints and muscles.
Take these tips on board this year. After all, who wants to start the Christmas holidays in pain?
