Why You Should Get a Chiropractic Adjustment Before Your Next Vacation

On average, 40 percent of families in the U.S. take at least one vacation each year. Of those individuals, 68 percent opt to in the summer. If you’re one of these people, you want to make the most of these days together, especially when it’s hard to make time for family regularly when everyone has such hectic and different schedules. With that being said, if you want to take advantage of every moment of your trip, consider adding a spinal alignment to your pre-vacation checklist. Here’s why:


Enjoy the Time 

Do you find yourself complaining about back and neck pain frequently to the point it puts a damper on other people’s good time? Does that pain interfere with your ability to enjoy yourself? 

Stop letting pain get in the way! Get a chiropractic adjustment from a Lakeville chiropractor today. During an alignment, our chiropractor corrects any subluxations – misalignments with the vertebrae in the spine. Essentially, these place pressure on the surrounding nerves and soft tissue, which results in pain. When your spine is in complete alignment, you have less pain. Plus, it increases your flexion and encourages circulation throughout the area, further reducing your pain and enhancing healing of injuries. 

When you have less pain, you can enjoy your trip from start to finish. Everyone else will enjoy that you’re griping less about your pain. You can relish in the moments with your loved ones and take in all the sights around you. Moreover, without the pain, you can keep up with everyone else and not hold them back. 

If you have children, they want you to run around and play with them. You can do so much more easily when you’re in less pain. 


Get a Better Night’s Sleep 

Your vacation might be the only extended length of time you have away from work, responsibilities, and stress. It’s a prime time to wake up and feel refreshed. However, back pain can hinder your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Nervous system and blood circulation are affected, which further deters you from getting a good night’s sleep even more.   

When you get a better night’s sleep after an adjustment, you’ll enjoy that plush hotel bed even more. And if you’re going camping, a chiropractic adjustment can be the difference between waking up with a sore back that reduces your mobility and rising with no pain.


Do More on Your Trip

At the beginning of your trip, you’ll probably excitedly write down an itinerary of everywhere you want to go and see on your vacation. Back or neck pain can easily interfere with your ability to visit every site you want to see or do all the activities. 

After a chiropractic adjustment from our Lakeville chiropractor, you’ll won’t have all that pain and can do and see as much as possible. 


Less Pain on the Commute 

They say half the fun is getting there. While we’re not sure who said this and why, your journey there by plane, train, boat, or automobile can lead to discomfort when you sit for prolonged periods. With chiropractic adjustments, though, the commute will be much easier with less pain and discomfort. This is especially the case if you have a lengthy journey ahead of you, or you’re on a plane or train and don’t have any opportunities to get up and stretch often.
