Well, not quite yet, but those are the song lyrics that you will hear bellowing through every shop from about this time of the year. There’s no mistaking that the festive period is on its way, and that means one thing: it’s time to do the Christmas shopping.
While most High Street shops attempt to make Christmas shopping somewhat magical by displaying perfectly decorated trees and twinkling fairy lights, the reality is that it’s still a sweat-inducing chore. And if you suffer from back pain, it can be incredibly testing.
Our team at Pure Chiropractic in Staines recommends that you stagger your shopping trips over the course of a few days or weeks to lessen the load on your spine. You should also try to find a parking space that’s close to the shops (or arrange a lift). We also advise that you evenly distribute your shopping load evenly across both sides of your body. So we definitly don’t want to see you walking around lopsided! Distributing the weight evenly helps to reduce pressure in one specific area of your spine.
Back injuries as a result of Christmas shopping are common. Don’t be among the shoppers our team of Staines chiropractors treat this season.
