Holiday Injuries

Holiday Injury Care in Roanoke, VA

The holiday season is a time for joyous reunions, cold-weather sports, frenetic shopping, and all the other hustle and bustle that accompanies this special section of the calendar year. Unfortunately, all this activity can also set the stage for a variety of musculoskeletal injuries, from sprains and strains to auto accidents.

The good news is that you can get on your feet in time to enjoy the rest of your year, thanks to all-natural holiday injury care from our chiropractor in Roanoke VA.

Common Holiday Injuries

You might be surprised at how easily it is to sustain an injury during the holiday season simply by going through your normal holiday routine. Decorating the tree or other activities that place you off the ground, for instance, can make you a prime candidate for a slip-and-fall injury that throws your vertebrae out of position. Shopping excursions that involve heavy lifting can cause serious back strains and sprains while hauling heavy bags around all day can compress your spine and cause overuse injuries in your extremities. Even the extra pounds you put from holiday overindulgence can increase stress on your joints and muscles, making an injury more likely.

Other seasonal activities can cause even more severe injuries. Winter sports such as skiing can cause both vertebral subluxation and soft tissue injuries (among other mishaps such as fractures). Last but not least, shopping trips and road trips can put you at risk for auto accidents -- a notorious cause of whiplash, sciatica, seat belt injuries and other painful problems. While this risk exists all year round, it rises during holiday times as intoxicated drivers populate the roads.
