Gardening Without Groans:
The Scottish Chiropractic Association’s Good-back Gardening Guide

At this time of year, Scottish chiropractors experience a seasonal influx of patients with back and neck strain caused by over-zealous gardening.  Dr Ross McDonald, SCA President, comments:  “The arrival of spring brings out the gardener in all of us, regardless of how fit or physically active we have been during the winter.  As a result, we see an increase in gardening-related spinal injury and pain.   Looking after your back properly before, during and after gardening activities will help sustain your health and fitness and will also ensure that you can garden successfully throughout the season!  Our gardeners’ guide to better back care will plant good habits for life”.


All keen gardeners know that preparation is essential for good results. The same is true for spinal care:

Gardening Without Groans

Minimising the “back-breaking” tasks is the best way to avoid back strain.

If you experience pain or discomfort as a result of gardening, please see your local SCA chiropractor for advice and help.

Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine. Chiropractors focus on the relationship between the structure and function of the human body, primarily coordinated by the nervous system. Treatment consists of a wide range of techniques designed to improve the function of the nervous system, relieving pain and muscle spasm and improving overall health.
