How You Can Get Treatment for Your Gardening Injury

Gardening is a wonderful activity that provides exercise, fresh air, and plenty of relaxation. However, there are also potential downsides. Gardening often leads to a variety of common injuries, including tendonitis, lower back pain and knee trouble to name a few. If you’re experiencing pain due to a gardening injury, it’s important to know how chiropractic care from Back to Health Center can help you feel better and get you back to doing what you love.

Common Gardening Injuries

There are many garden injuries that affect your musculoskeletal system, including your spine and neck. Gardening often requires a lot of bending over, handling of tools, and carrying heavy loads such as bags of soil. While a lot of gardening activity can provide you with a healthy workout, certain motions can also put your body under severe strain. Some of the most common gardening injuries include the following:

  • Neck Pain - Often gardeners twist or hold their neck in uncomfortable positions, which can strain the spine and muscles
  • Low Back Pain - Low back pain is a common problem for gardeners when it comes to lifting and bending.
  • Tendonitis – Muscle inflammation and chronic pain in key joints is experienced by many people who garden, and can slowly develop over time
  • Tennis Elbow – Caused by inflammation of the tendons in your elbow, this condition can occur due to repetitive motions, such as digging up soil
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Pain and numbness can develop in the wrist due to the amount of pressure and strain gardeners place on their wrist and hands
  • Pre-patellar bursitis – Gardeners spend a lot of times on their knees, which can lead to this painful condition
  • de Quervain's tenosynovitis – Develops due to chronic overuse of your thumb and the tendons in your wrist

Treating Your Gardening Injuries in Alexandria

As with many injuries, the most important thing you can often do is seek treatment in Alexandria as soon as possible if you’re feeling pain. Many of these conditions can become worse if you wait too long.

At the Back to Health Center, we first provide you a comprehensive examination to help target what is causing your pain. Our staff will also examine your range of motion issues to help determine what the best course of treatment is for you.

Depending on your condition, you may need a spinal alignment, which can help relieve pain in both your neck and back, reduce inflammation, and restore your range of motion. Other treatments can also help reduce pain and restore you to health, such as acupuncture for tendinitis treatment, massage therapy, physical therapy, or cold laser therapy. In some instances, you may require multiple different treatment strategies to help provide you with complete healing.
