  1. Golf ball. Have you been dealing with an achy foot right on the bottom? Rolling a golf ball gently under your foot can give you some relief from the tension.
  2. Tennis balls. Standing against the wall, place a tennis ball between your shoulders and the wall. Slowly working up and down, side to side to help work out that achy back.
  3. Frozen Vegetables. These are not only great for supper, but can be a great ice pack instead of buying an expensive ice pack in stores.
  4. Rolling pin. These are not just for cookies. Rolling pins are a great way to help loosen your tight leg muscles, especially after a long day at the office.
  5. Towel. When sitting at a desk all day at the office, you can start to feel the tension in your back and neck from slouching. To help relieve the aches, roll up a towel, and lay it lengthwise on the ground. Lay back on the towel so it goes from your tailbone to your skull. Relax for one minute, feeling the stretch across your chest and front of your shoulders. A rolled towel is also a great way to create a lumbar support.

 

These tips may not resolved things completely, but they will help you manage until you can see your local chiropractic.
