Leaves are falling, Autumn is calling.

October 9, 2019

Once again, fall is upon us. The crisp, cool air and leaves changing signifies the transition into cooler weather. Living in Albuquerque, we all know that fall is one the most anticipated times of the year. The aroma of roasted green chile fills the air while hot air balloons circulate and dance around the Sandia Mountains. During this busy time of year, it can be easy neglect one’s health especially when participating in the many activities that fall provides. Try to fall into these healthy habits to avoid back and neck pain:

  • Cheering on the Sidelines
    Do you love going to sporting events? Sitting on the sidelines for long periods of time can put stress on the spinal column. Avoid aches and pains the next day by bringing a supportive chair or cushion and taking time to get up and move around.
  • Cleaning Up Your Yard
    Taking time to clean up fall foliage in your yard?  Your body may not be used to spending an entire day doing labor. Break up the job to give opportunities for muscles to relax and rest, stretch before and after, and drink plenty of water to keep the bloodstream moving.
  • Pumpkin Picking
    Love heading to McCall’s pumpkin patch in Moriarity, or one of the surrounding Orchards to pick pumpkins? While this traditional Fall activity is fun, lifting heavy objects can easily weaken your back. Use a wagon around the farm and lift the pumpkins with your legs when you are loading and unloading them.
  • Everything Pumpkin
    Pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin rolls…these all sound delicious. Remember to keep them in moderation. Weight can put ongoing pressure on the spine, so to avoid low back pain keep the waistline slim.
