Discover Scottsdale without aggravating your chronic pain
Chronic back pain can make enjoying your leisure time difficult, but there are numerous attractions throughout Scottsdale, Arizona, that can easily be enjoyed without discomfort. For instance, a helicopter ride over the mountains can provide you with stunning views of Paradise Valley and Squaw Peak Mountain, without the hours of physical activity involved in a strenuous hike.
For those who are more inclined to the indoors, the Scottsdale Center for the Arts lets visitors take in entertaining shows from the comfort of a relaxing seat, while the Scottsdale Historical Museum gives visitors a unique perspective of how the town has changed over the years.
Other top choices include:
- A day at the Troon North golf course
- A tour of Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s former home
- A tour and tasting at Queen Creek Olive Mill
- An afternoon of shopping in Old Town
- A therapeutic massage at one of the area’s numerous resorts and spas
Of course, it’s important to prepare carefully for a day on the town, regardless of what’s on the agenda. Hydration is key, and wearing supportive shoes is equally important. And, while it can be tempting to bring an oversized tote bag with a camera, reading material, and other items, packing light is also advisable. The less you bring with you, the less unnecessary weight your spine has to carry.
Another helpful tip is planning just one activity per day. This helps minimize stress on your body, while also allowing you to head home for some much-needed rest without missing out on upcoming plans.
