As winter is dissolving, more and more people are coming out of their homes and getting ready to redesign their yards and gardens. The maintenance of yards and gardens can be a outdoor fun activity for families after winter, but it can be bad for the back if not done properly.

The Foundation for Chiropractic Care, a non-profit organization whose aim is to increase people’s awareness about chiropractic treatment and its benefits, pointed out to the importance of chiropractic care for those who will be doing lots of work outdoors this spring.

“Back and neck injuries are very common during the spring month and people place stress and strain on their body while completing even the simplest of yard and garden tasks,” Gerard W. Clum, D.C., President of Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California and spokesperson of the foundation, stated. “People are sometimes less active in the winter, so they are usually revved up to tackle their yard when warm weather hits,” he added, “Overexerting yourself the first time out there can have painful results if not done properly.”

In case of pain or injury, Dr. Saario of ChiroCarolina® strongly recommends spinal manipulation and other types of treatments that can strengthen the back or relieve the patient from pain. ChiroCarolina® is a chiropractic clinic serving the residents of Charlotte, North Carolina. They have highly skilled doctors and staff that are more than willing to assist people who are new to chiropractic treatment.
