Summer is finally here.
Many of us will plan vacations in an attempt to leave our day-to-day cares behind. Unfortunately, we can’t leave our spinal subluxations behind when we hit the highway. Spinal challenges do not take vacations.
As you plan your summer get-away, don’t forget to plan for proper spinal maintenance. Talk to your Chiropractor about creating a plan to accommodate your holidays, including fortifying yourself with extra care before your trip, and scheduling catch-up appointments upon your return.
