Spring is a time of many new beginnings. The temperature begins to rise as our part of the earth tilts closer to the sun. The birds come back to their home for the summertime. Blossoms and green grass begin to grow from the Sun and April showers. It’s a time when an activity that has been dormant during the winter begins to flourish!
The same can be said for the humans who most often stay inside most of the winter and are typically less active than the rest of the year. For many of us, this means we begin to move more and partake in many outdoor activities that were impossible to do during the winter.
This increased activity on a body that has been somewhat dormant and inactive can cause wear and tear quickly if not done correctly. Our body must now adapt to new motions and stressors that it hasn’t had for several months. Going about this the correct way will limit long term damage and enhance the likelihood of positive results.
Our nerve system, including our brain and spinal cord, is what helps our body adapt to these new stressors and create new positive patterns. If there is any interference to our brain’s ability to coordinate this adaptability, problems will inevitably occur. This is why the #1 thing for everyone to do is get a check-up from their family’s Chiropractor anytime they begin to become more active. It greatly enhances the ability to function at your best and minimizes the chances of causing problems that can hamper your fun during the summer!
