Active Lifestyle this Summer!
With the warm summer weather, it can feel great to lace up the running shoes or hop on the bike and hit the trails. Unfortunately, sometimes as we rev up our activities, pain can flare up and stop us in our tracks. The repetitive pounding that comes from high-impact activities such as tennis, running, and walking puts large amounts of stress on our feet, ankles, knees, and hips, which can lead to many different overuse injuries. Maybe this summer you have noticed some new aches or pains in your joints, or perhaps old, nagging symptoms are reappearing. Whether you want to prevent injuries or reduce painful symptoms, chiropractic care should be your first stop! Chiropractic can be used for injury prevention because it emphasizes proper alignment of the spine and pelvis. Common injuries such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and IT band syndrome often respond very well to chiropractic care as well.
Dr. Josh Watkins and Dr. Lindsey Hurlbut at Watkins Family Chiropractic are ready to help you prevent any injuries or help get rid of your pain to keep you active this summer. An active summer is a happy summer! If you or anyone you know in the Savage, Prior Lake, Burnsville, or Shakopee areas, have these concerns, give us a call; we would be glad to give you an assessment.
