Chiropractic West Des Moines IA Healthy Winter


West Des Moines Iowa Winters can be brutal! Low temps, mounting snow and black ice are just a few things Iowans can expect every season.

These rough winters can put wear and tear on your body. However, as your leading West Des Moines chiropractor, we are here to help!

Following these few simple tips, can help prevent the harsh Midwest winter from taking a toll on your body.

Tip #1 :: Stay Flexible

A natural reaction to cooler temps is our bodies become more restricted in an effort to help us stay warm. Adding daily stretching to your routine can help prevent your muscles from balling up! Ask us at your next appointment what stretches are best for you.

Tip #2 :: Layer Clothing

Wearing the proper amount of layers during winter will help keep your muscles warm and flexible. Wearing warm clothing is essential when performing tasks like shoveling snow, because of the strain that is put on your musculoskeletal system.

Here’s a good rule for layering up:

  • Innermost Layer: Wool or an insulated fabric.
  • Outermost Layer: Waterproof and wind-resistant.

Tip #3 :: Hydration is Key!

Dehydration can lead to tight muscles, which increases your chances of injury. Liquid consumption does decrease in the winter due to the fact people don't want to sip on something cold when it's freezing outside. However, whether hot or cold, drinking is imperative to keeping your muscles loose.

It is also important to avoid too many caffeinated beverages. Increased caffeine levels can also contribute to dehydration.

So, who wants to build a snowman!? Following these simple tips will allow you to enjoy (or survive) the Iowa winter injury free!
