Parties. Gift shopping. Family gatherings. Curling up to watch a favorite movie on the couch…. The holiday season is full of reasons for good cheer. And yet, according to the American Physical Therapy Association, it is also prime time for Americans to suffer from back and neck pain.
For one thing, the stress associated with extra obligations during the holidays can increase muscle tension, aggravating any existing condition. But there are also a number of common seasonal activities— such as entertaining, shopping, and wrapping gifts— that can lead directly to back and neck pain. Here are a few tips from the American Chiropractic Association to help you stay pain free this holiday season.
Sticking to a routine of physical activity, getting adequate rest, and eating well will also help relieve stress and tension during the holidays. Above all, relax! It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself, your family, and your back. And if you do experience neck or back pain, be sure to fit an appointment with your doctor of chiropractic into your busy schedule.

In September, I was rear-ended in a car accident. I have always been nervous about going to a Chiropractor, but this was my 3rd whiplash and I knew that Physical Therapy only did so much. I searched the web for Chiropractors in my area and found the Ahwatukee Life Center. What impressed me about their treatment of the whole body, not just my neck. With the careful explanation of my X-rays, I was able to see how my neck trauma was affecting various parts of my body. They also used the Cold Laser treatment to help with the dizziness that I suffered from after the accident. Thank you Dr Morley and staff, for calming my fears about Chiropractors. I feel SO much better!
