LINDENHURST, Ill., July 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Summer is a time when everyone shakes off the cold of winter and heads out to have a little fun in the sun. For those who spend a great deal of time outdoors, one local chiropractor is warning that summer activities can lead to injuries, pains, strains, pulls, and more. Lindenhurst chiropractor, Dr. Mark Freund, DC of Natural Care Chiropractic, is advising people to take precautions when hiking, playing sports, and doing home improvements.

Dr. Mark Freund, DC encourages people to get out and enjoy their favorite outdoor activities in the summer. However, he is strongly urging people to take care of their bodies when they become more active, warning that physical stress from summer fun can lead to injuries.

Dr. Freund emphasized, "Physical stress during summer activities has been a big problem for our patients. With all the summer fun, some people don't think about the ramifications that fun has on their bodies."

Dr. Freund explains that people often overload backpacks with heavy equipment and supplies while hiking and camping during the summer. Additionally, the ground is not the most accommodating of surfaces for the sake of human comfort.

Whiplash and spinal stress often occur when participating in water sports like wake boarding, skiing, tubing, and speed boating. Kids also participate in many summer sports which lead to sports related injuries, and camps often provide many intense physical exercises and exertions for children with a wide range of sprains, strains, and other injuries as a result.

Dr. Freund stressed that "These are just the leisurely activities. When you get into home improvement project strains, falls, slips, and trips; you enter into a new dimension of stress injuries – and who doesn't overdo it on occasion? That's why we offer treatment for the injuries as well as education on how to avoid them in the future."

The good news for those who've either enjoyed a little too much of a good thing this summer or overworked their bodies while improving their homes, is that relief is available for the pain caused by most of these injuries.

Chiropractic care, according to Dr. Freund, is about so much more than treating injuries after they occur. He says it is also about teaching patients how to avoid injuries in the future.

Natural Care Chiropractic is a thorough comprehensive clinic that offers evening and Saturday hours to accommodate busy professionals. In addition to offering chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy, pain management, sports therapy, and auto accident recovery care, the clinic also provides acupuncture and nutrition counseling. Dr. Freund encourages anyone suffering from any summer stress injuries to call his office and schedule an appointment today.
