It may seem like the school summer holidays have only just come to an end, but half term is approaching already. And that means one thing – trying to keep your little ones entertained!
If you suffer from back pain, you may be apprehensive about embarking on an adventure-packed family day out. (Standing in endless roller coaster queues or sitting in traffic for hours on end isn’t exactly a good way to look after your aching spine, after all!). But there are still fun things you can do that will keep your kids happy, engaged and away from the tablet/ TV screen for a good few hours!
Walking is one of the most effective exercises for back pain and there’s no better way to spend some quality time with your children than by taking a refreshing autumn stroll together. Feel the crunch of the crispy leaves beneath your feet, breathe in the invigorating October air and watch the magical colours of the season light up your half term.
Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor recommends researching local walking routes that are specifically designed for families. We reommend the Visit Stoke website which lists some wonderful walks you can take around Stoke.
We are so fortunate living in the Stoke-on-Trent area as we have an abundance of opportunities to take beautiful walks as Stoke on Trent is one of the greenest cities in the UK. Stoke has over 1380 hectares of park and open spaces. Wherever you are in Stoke-on-Trent, you are never far from one of its many parks and wildlife areas and so it is the perfect place to get active either on foot or on two wheels!
The Staffordshire Peak District National Park which has some fantastic walks around the Roaches, Luds Church, the Churnet and Manifold Valleys and Dove Dale is only half an hour away.
Sometimes, the simplest things create the most happiness.
