Gardening is an amazing and cathartic summer activity. Working with your hands in the outdoors and providing food for yourself and for your family is a practice that goes back thousands of years. While you most likely try your best to use good posture and take care of yourself during other activities during the day, it can be hard to remember to apply that same care when working outside in the hot sun. Unfortunately, during the peak gardening months of the year, most chiropractors see a rise in new patients complaining of back pain as well as other posture and fatigue-related issues. But there are some pretty simple things you can put into practice today that will help you to avoid injury and discomfort while gardening.
