It's cold and icy outside our treatment area today so it's time to wrap up warm and take care with our footing!
Cold muscles are prone to injury and this can make you feel very sore, so take preventative steps to stop chills, especially on the neck and lower back. Wrap up and warm up muscles prior to strenuous activity (this could be simply a brisk walk or hot shower). My teenage son is having none of it of course and still insists on the half mast trousers or walking home in just a light shirt and blazer, so it's no surprise to me that he feels stiff even at his tender age!
Slipping on ice, twisted ankles and nasty falls resulting in sprains and strains can be treated here at Rolls Mill using chiropractic, massage, injury clinic and acupuncture. Recent problems we have seen involved slipping on an icy stile, sliding in the copious "after mud", road traffic accidents and falls.
Remember too - de ice your car properly (and get those winter tyres back on *nudges husband*) and sprinkle salt in slippery walk way areas. Prevention is better than cure but we're here to help if you need us! Guaranteed a non frosty reception!
