3 Winter Injuries & How a Chiropractor Can Treat Them, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Whether playing winter sports or just shoveling your walkway, injuries are all too common this time of the year. If you’re experiencing winter-related back pain or other issues, it might be time to schedule a visit with a chiropractor. The following are a few examples of the issues that chiropractic care can address.

3 Injuries That Might Occur During the Winter

1. Slip & Fall Accidents

Icy sidewalks are perilous during the winter, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself the victim of a slip and fall accident. Back pain and other issues are quite common in this case, and a chiropractor is your best bet at finding relief. A chiropractic adjustment can improve the range of motion while reducing pain caused by irritated nerves.  

2. Strains While Shoveling Snow

ChiropractorShoveling snow is an unfortunate activity of winter. When you try to clear your driveway or walkway in a hurry, you’re at risk of experiencing muscle strain, which can put you out of commission for days or even weeks. When shoveling snow, take your time, lift with your legs, and get help when necessary. If you experience a muscle strain, a chiropractor can ease discomfort—without relying on painkillers or surgical procedures.

3. Skiing & Snowboarding Injuries

Skiing and snowboarding are fun forms of exercise, but they’re also linked to significant injuries. Visiting a chiropractor on a regular basis primes your body for physical activity. When the spine is in proper alignment, all muscles and ligaments will work in conjunction. This makes you less prone to injuries because you’ll be able to maintain the proper form. Chiropractic care can also include nutritional and fitness guidance, which also helps with injury prevention.
