Tips For a Successful Summer!


**Weekly adjustments--Summer is a busy time of year filled with a lot of activity.  Seeing your chiropractor weekly for an adjustment is important to keep summer activities and your body running smoothly.

**Stretch-create a daily stretching routine.  Ask your chiropractor for suggestions.  Your body will thank you!

** Stay Hydrated--summer heat can cause dehydration, so make sure to drink plenty of water while out having fun in the sun. Make lemon water for your morning drink.

** Sunscreen--look for sunscreens that do not contain dangerous chemicals. Mineral sunscreens typically contain zinc oxide, which creates a  physical barrier to protect the skin from the sun.  Chemical sunscreens use one or more chemicals including oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.

**Exercise--Summer is the perfect time of year to get outside and exercise.  Walking and swimming are both great ways to keep your joints and muscles moving and pliable.

**Have fun--Winter will be here before we know it.  Enjoy the outside.  Listen to the birds, watch a tall tree sway in the breeze.  Turn your face to the sun and take a deep breath.
