Over the last 2 weeks I have noticed a dramatic increase in back pain patients. This is due to what I call…’Binge Gardening!’ the weather as we all know has been terrible, so all gardening and manual labour outside has been put on hold. The problems that I find as a chiropractor who treats the community is that once we have a sniff of good weather for a few hours, everyone goes out and binges with the digging etc.
Please remember that gardening is a workout that needs warming up for and never forget to warm down!!
