Get into the Garden with Greatness!

Gardening Pattison Final

This May has been one of the coldest and wettest on record but we know that you die-hard gardeners are just itching to get outside. 

After a long winter of hibernating with Netflix, spring time gardening can be especially challenging to our bodies. This impact can be even more intense when it is cold outside and our muscles aren’t warmed up properly. 

A proper warm-up, together with stretching and taking appropriate breaks, helps minimize the risk of all kinds of issues from low back pain, to numbness and tingling in the hands, to achey joints and beyond.

Be proactive!  Check in with your chiropractor for a "spring tune-up before you dig to ensure that you are ready to hit the ground running.  

Be sure to address any issues as soon as they arise to ensure a speedy recovery with minimal treatment.

For fantastic tips on how to keep yourself running like a well oiled machine, be sure to watch these great gardening videos with Dr. Roberta Da Re.
