Biking and Hiking: How Chiropractic Care Helps

The spring is one of the best times of year to take your workout outdoors.  This time of year sees a rise in two fun activities: Biking and hiking.  While fun and active activities, biking and hiking are also great exercise! The downside? They can both cause some soreness in the body, especially in the back. If you want to enjoy your outdoor time without the pain, take a look at why you should add chiropractic care to the mix today.

How and Why and When the Pain Starts

Pain generally starts for two reasons.

If you’re just starting out your biking and hiking routine, your back may not be used to the work yet. It may become stiff and sore, and the only way to get through the pain is to power through.

Another reason that pain may begin is due to misalignments of the vertebrae of the spine. This can happen for all sorts of reasons, be it a new activity, an injury, or the simple wears and tears of life. If you’re new to biking, it might be caused by the posture you take when you’re riding. If you’re new to hiking, it might be the challenge that you’ve just placed on your body.

Whatever the cause, whenever the misalignments are present, the back may feel sore, stiff, or generally achy. You may notice that you’re simply complaining of back pain more often than you used to. Other symptoms of a misaligned spine may include neck pain, inflexibility, headaches, stiff joints, and many other negative side effects.

How Chiropractic Care May Help

If you’re wanting to stay active, chiropractic care is a great way to keep your body in a good condition.

When you visit our office, our chiropractors will give you a quick check-up, specifically looking for misalignments of the vertebrae of the spine. If those misalignments are present, the chiropractor will find and correct them using spinal manipulation. The most obvious benefit of realigning the spine is the pain relief that often accompanies it. Along with pain relief, a person may find a greater range of motion, improved focus, fewer headaches, a boost in the immune system, and many other positive side effects.

For either hiking or biking, chiropractic care may help eliminate that soreness or pain, making both activities more enjoyable.  By doing so, it means better health and a more active life for you all through the fall.
