1) Always warm up before beginning yard work. The leaves on your yard may seem never ending this season and you’ll feel the need to clear them all. However, be sure to warm up your body appropriately before picking up that rake. Overuse and improper use of these muscles may cause damage if this important step is skipped. 2) Put on comfortable, proper fitting shoes. Dr. Grewal advises wearing a sturdy pair of non-slip shoes at this time of year when engaging in outdoor activities. During the fall season, sliding hazards such as wet grass and leaves are frequent. 3) Drink plenty of water. Summer’s intense heat makes it simple to remember to stay hydrated. As it cools down we tend to lean towards coffees and teas and slow down on the water. It is important to remain well hydrated to keep joints flexible and improve our overall health. 4) And lastly seek regular chiropractic care. At Foundations Family Chiropractic Dr. Grewal can evaluate your health and make some modifications to relieve spinal constraints and enhance the body’s nervous system connections, keeping you at your best health this fall season.
