If you have a dog you know their happiness directly correlates to how much time they get to spend outdoors and exercising. They love running around, interacting with others and even just lying in the sun. As a loving dog owner, you want to be able to provide this for your dog. But, if you have low back pain
, going for walks and hikes with your dog will not be enjoyable and in some cases not possible.
Now that the weather has gotten nicer in these spring months, avoiding going outside with your dog because of pain will get harder and harder! Don’t delay seeing a chiropractor about your pain, now is the time before we enter summer and vacations. This pain will most likely not go away by itself, and in some cases it will only take a few trips to the chiropractor to begin feeling better. Your dog will thank you and be happier, and you will thank yourself! Being outdoors and being active with your dog with get those endorphins going and improve your attitude. Not to mention, you will be pain-free and who knows, you might lose a few pounds before bathing suit season.
