This is the time of year that we see the most injuries at our chiropractic clinic in Barrie. Most of these result from increased activities. Patients that have been cooped up all winter are ready to hit the ground running in the Spring and Summer. They go from a sedentary lifestyle to an active lifestyle overnight.
Don’t get me wrong.
It’s a great idea to be active and live an active and healthy life, but we can’t do it all at once. Unless you’ve kept up with some form of exercise during the Winter, trying to go full steam ahead with a fitness regimen at once can result in a serious setback.
In order for our bodies to function at a higher level, they need to work up to it. That means starting with a small increase in activity and then adding to that with time. We can increase the level of activity when our body feels ready. If we do it that way then we are less likely to injure ourselves. Don’t be overzealous and try to go from 0 to 60 in just one day. ...

Lower back pain is a very common problem these days. With the busy life, low nutrition and irregular sleep we all tend to develop weak muscles that lead to backaches. The most common cause of acute lower back pain is the damage of muscles and ligaments in the lower back. While a muscle strain doesn’t sound like a serious injury, the resulting pain can be severe and is the reason of many chiropractic clinic visits each year.
Commonly there are two types of lower back strains:
1. A muscle strain – It happens when the muscle is overstretched or torn, resulting in damage to the muscle fibers. People commonly refer to it as a muscle pull.
2 .A lumbar sprain – It happens when ligaments are stretched too far or torn. Ligaments are very tough, fibrous, connective tissues that connect bones together.
Generally it doesn’t matter if it’s a muscle strain or a ligament sprain since the basic treatment and prognosis for both are the same.
