Common Types of Gardening Injuries

ith springtime and warmer weather approaching, our chiropractors in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Garner, Wake Forest, Fuquay and Clayton expect to see an unfortunate uptick in people dealing with yard work and gardening related issues. Fortunately, chiropractic care is very effective for managing pain and dysfunction related to such injuries. If you're a gardener or have one in your family, we invite you to keep reading and see how we can help you.

Common Types of Gardening Injuries

Given the nature (pun intended) of gardening, it's not uncommon for gardeners to complain of pain in their back, neck, shoulders, wrists, and knees. The frequent standing, stooping, kneeling, lifting, digging, etc. involved can place a lot of strain on the joints and other connective tissues within these body areas.

Specific injuries seen in gardening may include:

  • Muscle strains and tension, especially in the shoulder and back
  • Bursitis (inflammation of fluid-filled sacs between tendons and bones that normally help motion by reducing friction)
  • Sciatica and other types of nerve root compression

How Chiropractic Care Can Help a Gardener Recover From an Injury

We offer several types of chiropractic care techniques to facilitate healing from a gardening-related injury, which are drug-free and non-invasive (thus minimizing your downtime so you can get back to preparing for harvest time!):

  • Spinal adjustments
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Laser therapy
  • Decompression

Together, these services can reduce inflammation, swelling, pain, as well as increase localized circulation, tissue healing, and overall postural balance, alignment, and strength. Our chiropractors in Raleigh can also educate the gardeners in your life on proper body mechanics in order to prevent recurring problems from developing or worsening.
