On May 13, 2018, we celebrate our mothers, wives, sisters, aunts, and guardians. Ever since we were babies, our mothers have done a lot for us. That’s why we take a day to celebrate the wonderful, selfless, and nurturing people that they are. If the caregiver in your life suffers from bad back pain, here are some thoughtful gift ideas for Mother’s Day:
Gourmet Herbal Tea Gift Basket
You don’t have to have back pain to enjoy a beautiful basket of delicious herbal teas. And if you’re worried that your gift will focus too much on your mom’s sore back, this gift is a little more indirect. For centuries, people from all over the world have relied on the holistic benefits of herbal teas and tinctures to calm and cure their physical ailments. Any tea containing ginger, turmeric, eucalyptus, or chamomile will relax her muscles and provide inflammatory relief.
If your mom’s back pain is unusual or sudden, it’s likely that she will feel better after some rest, relaxation, and a little TLC on your end. However, if she’s constantly on the go like most moms are, she might not be giving herself the time she needs to relax and take care of herself in order to fully heal. That’s where a massage comes in. Massage therapy is a well-documented approach to relieving back pain. She’ll feel perfectly pampered as her therapist massages the stress and tension out of her body.
Free Yoga or Pilates Classes
Strength and flexibility are two aspects of back health that don’t get as much attention as they deserve. The truth is, many of us aren’t doing what we should to maintain our core/back strength and flexibility. Signing your mom up for a gentle yoga or Pilates class that focuses on deep stretching and strengthening of the lower back and pelvic muscles will go a long way in fighting back pain. The stronger and more flexible she is, the less vulnerable she is to strain or injury.
A Chiropractic Appointment
We hope that your mom takes her back health seriously and has spoken to her doctor or Kelowna chiropractor about her pain. But if she’s nervous or claims to be too busy to seek the right treatment, encouraging her to visit Symtrio Chiropractic Clinic is a positive step in the right direction. We provide tailored chiropractic methods to suit the needs of every patient: manual chiropractic manipulation, stretching, spinal decompression, laser therapy, electrotherapy, and diet and lifestyle advice.
