The joy that comes from spending time with family members and loved ones on Christmas morning is unlike anything else. Watching the faces of those around you as they open up their presents makes the stress of holiday gift shopping worth it. However, all of the gift shopping, carrying bulky or heavy items, and traveling long distances takes a toll on the body.
Winter Holiday Stress and Injuries
The winter holiday season brings about more car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and general pains. Most injuries that occur during this time of the year take place while people are shopping for gifts or driving from one site to another. People who are rushing around tend to lose focus on their immediate surroundings, causing them to get into an accident or fall on slippery sidewalks.
Lifting or carrying bulky items or heavy luggage also contributes to an increase in back injuries, as well as additional stress and frustration. When confronted with excessive amounts of pressure, most people tend to experience recurring headaches and loss of sleep.
Focus On Positive Health and Wellness During The Winter Holidays
It’s easy to get stressed out this time of the year but allowing yourself to stay focused on your health and overall wellness can help you experience a more relaxed, enjoyable holiday season with your family. And, our Atlanta Chiropractors can assist with this through a variety of therapeutic techniques, as well as recommendations that focus on diet and exercise.
Chiropractic Adjustments are phenomenal for relieving tension and helping to reduce headaches, back pain, and neck pain. They are also fantastic for eliminating anxiety. Corrective exercises are great for improving your core strength, as well as increasing your mobility which both help reduce the chances of getting injured from carrying bulky items.
Adjusting your dietary habits to include more fresh vegetables and fruits goes a long way in improving energy levels and providing a boost to your immune system. Although grabbing fast food is convenient when rushing throughout the city, fried food does not supply your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs to fend off harmful bacteria or viruses. Our Chiropractors are trained in providing nutritional support and can help create a diet plan that enables you to stay focused, energized, and healthy.
