It’s Summertime and the festival season is underway. Whether you are into music, literature or food there’s probably a festival happening to celebrate it. Getting out and about, spending time with people you know and taking pleasure in the things you like can be good for you. However, our chiropractors at Hounslow Family Chiropractic Clinic want to remind you to take care of your back.
Our chiropractors stress that sometimes it’s the simplest things that we do that can cause our backs to suffer the most.
Whilst going to a festival is fun there’s a high likelihood that you will spend time sitting for periods on hard surfaces, possibly even sleeping on some too, standing for long periods and also carrying bags around.
To ease the pressure on your back consider using an appropriately adjusted rucksack for carrying your things, wear comfortable shoes, stand with your feet shoulder width apart and drink plenty of water. If you are going to camp over then make sure to clear the ground below your tent, use a camping mat and a blow up pillow.
Our chiropractors hope you enjoy your festival and keep your back safe.
