Is your back haunting you?

Gentle & effective chiropractic

Are you worried you will be creaking and creeping about this Halloween?

Are you worried you will be creaking and creeping about this Halloween? If so, The McTimoney Chiropractic Association has some devilishly quick tips to help you out.

• Putting up the decorations!

Take care when you are reaching for the high spots to get your spiders and sticky webs in place. Twisting, over-reaching and standing on one leg trying to reach the perfect spot can cause you mischief! Use a sensible ladder or steps instead.

• Pick up your pumpkin!

Everyone needs a pumpkin at Halloween and there are some giant ones about! Don’t forget to use your legs to pick up yours. Depending on the size of your pumpkin,remember to bend the knees or squat and use your legs to help do the lifting. You will be protecting your back from all sorts of nasty tricks.

• Trick or treating?

When planning your route with your witches and ghouls, remember they need to be able to walk home as well; otherwise you will be carrying them. Carrying tired children can twist the spine if you carry on one hip or compress the spinal column if you carry them on your shoulders. Try and plan your route and your shoe choice accordingly!
