Are you experiencing back pain due to springtime yard work?

Here is how a chiropractor can help you recover.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – As Spring progresses, more people are participating in the completion of yard work associated with the season. Although the activities are necessary and rewarding for the upkeep of one’s home, it can take a toll on the musculoskeletal health of those involved. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help with the recovery of back pain associated to springtime yard work.

Musculoskeletal injuries can be a result of many springtime activities, such as long hours bent over flower beds, pushing lawnmowers and carrying loads of yard waste. If these injuries are left untreated, they can accumulate and result in chronic back pain.

Dr. Donald Phillips, who graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, has been serving residents of San Antonio for more than 30 years now as the lead chiropractor at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness. He seeks to highlight the issue of back pain arising due to springtime yard work and encourages patients to maintain good posture when completing those tasks. Dr. Phillips also urges people to take breaks often and reminds patients that back pain relief is readily available for those who need it.

“While it is undeniably enjoyable to spend time outside after a long winter, musculoskeletal injuries can easily occur when completing springtime yard work,” says Dr. Phillips. “Those experiencing back pain due to yard work should know that chiropractic care is a natural and effective back pain solution. Over time, chiropractic adjustments reduce pain and improve the body’s natural ability to repair itself.

Dr. Phillips is the holder of multiple degrees and has an impressive list of licenses and certifications. He anticipates raising awareness for those participating in yard work  on both the potential musculoskeletal impacts of these activities and the chiropractic treatment available for those impacts.
