The Hustle and Bustle of the Season Can Take an Unseen Toll
For most families, the busiest time of the year is upon us. It is a season of hurry up and get to that sale, run from mall to mall to score the big prize, and move quickly to get that huge dinner together for the whole neighborhood. While this time of year is supposed to be about slowing down to reflect and treasure all we have, to be thankful and grateful for our many gifts, and to be together – it rarely pans out that way.
While you may be relishing in the peace, joy, and true meaning of the season in your mind this holiday season, your body may be screaming for you to stop or at least slow down. When there is so much to do and mere weeks to make it all happen, it is easy to find yourself suffering from joint pain more now than ever. The long lines you find yourself waiting in with armloads of heavy gifts weighing you down really tests the limits of your joints, and your patience. The joint pain relief Rochester NY shoppers may be seeking will never be found on a discount shelf while you stand in line.
Waiting in long, endless lines is not the only way holiday shopping can take a real toll on your body, and joints in particular. The rush of getting in and out of stores can impact your joints more than what they are used to. Your knees can really suffer when you try to sprint through icy parking lots and then shuffle along hard, cement floors in box stores trying to get your hands on the last item on your list. Going from sitting at work, sitting in the car, to practically running across the pavement simply puts more pressure on your joints than they are able to take.
When the holidays and the exhausting shopping trips leave you aching for joint pain relief Rochester NY shoppers desperately need before New Year’s, let the experts at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness help you find the joy and peace in the season again.
