It’s important to be aware of the common injuries that can occur during the holiday season. During the holidays, the frequency with which certain types of injuries occur, increase as people are doing things like, hanging lights and holiday decorations, picking up heavy shopping bags, and just rushing around in general. Framingham Chiropractor recommends that people be extra careful with these types of activities during the holidays. However, for anyone who may have suffered a back, neck, or other type of bodily injury to see a chiropractor for treatment right away. The longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to fix the problem.
There seems to be so many opportunity for injury during this time of year. From falling off a ladder hanging lights, slipping on ice, or getting a back or neck strain from heavy packages.
