Muscle Sprains and Dehydration

Muscle Springs, cramps, and strains are some of the most common summertime injuries. The best way to prevent them is to make sure you keep yourself hydrated. Muscle endurance decreases when a person is 3 to 4% dehydrated. This elevates the risk of sprains and strains. Going to see a chiropractor is also a great way to not only take care of any injuries you currently have, but they perform treatments that can prevent future injuries and increase muscle endurance.

Spinal Misalignment

During the summer months, there are many types of activities where you can harm yourself. For instance, participating in activities like water skiing and participating in sports like touch football or softball. Going to see a chiropractor before you participate in a sports activity is a great way to loosen up muscles and joints, and to lessen the risk of spinal misalignment. In addition to participating in yoga exercises is a great way to keep yourself limber and your muscles engaged. Further yoga for back pain has proven to be a great source of relief for many people.
