Thanksgiving is almost here! A time when we overindulge, watch football and parades, and spend much needed quality time with family and friends. While this time of year is something millions look forward to, some are less enthusiastic. It’s not that Thanksgiving isn’t enjoyable, it can just throw a huge wrench in your healthy habits. To get prepared for the Thanksgiving holiday, we’ve put together some tips to protect you from Turkey Day pitfalls.
Thanksgiving is one of (if not) the biggest travel holidays of the year. Some people will hop in the car, others will stand in line at the airport. So what does that mean for your health? It could mean a lot of back pain! Think about all that time cramped up in one seat, lots of waiting and sitting, and a lack of movement for hours or even days…your back could get sore from just thinking about it! Chiropractic adjustments are a great way to ease that back pain. When your spine is properly aligned with regular chiropractic care, you’ll be able to prevent some of those pains, alleviate discomfort, and return home feeling great!
Thanksgiving usually means way too much food, and more than most of us would eat on a regular day. Since we’re most likely either hosting or traveling, that means less movement and exercise. Not only is this bad for your weight, it is also bad for your flexibility. All the consumption plus inactivity can lead to stiff and painful joints. Chiropractic care can help in this area by keeping your body functioning as it should, which means an overall healthier body. With preventative care, you can help protect your joints from stiffness and improve your flexibility in time for Turkey Day.
