You have been plotting, planning, and saving up for your theme park vacation for a long time. Nothing going to stop you from running around a theme park all day with your family and friends. Then it happens, your back and muscles start to say ouch because walking around a theme park and waiting in ride lines is way more than your body is used to. Today I am going to share how to play all day at a theme park even if back and muscle pain comes into play.
How to Play All Day at a Theme Park
I put my whole self into each theme park day and I’m not going to let back and muscle pain keep me from great memories with my family. Theme park days can be long, from park opening to park close I do not want to miss a moment of fun.
Begin Walking More at Home
Since most theme parks require a lot of walking I recommend “training” for your vacation and walking more than normal at least a month in advance. Start with 10 minutes and then work yourself up to longer amounts of time.
Pack Pain Relieving Essentials
Good Walking Shoes. Make sure your shoes have enough cushion and support. If you are going on a multiday trip bring more than one pair so you can alternate shoes. I got fitted for my shoes at a running store and even if you are not running a race I recommend doing the same.
Eat a Banana. Bananas have potassium which helps your muscles perform their best. You can also drink some pure coconut water. Either way, these treats will help avoid back and muscle pain, especially if you develop leg cramps.
A Dependable Pain Reliever. I prefer Aleve Back & Muscle Pain. Aleve knows that you want to get the most out of life but sometimes pain can get in the way. Aleve provides all-day pain relief that can help stop tough pain so it doesn’t stop you from enjoying the best moments in life.
I play so hard at theme parks and want to experience everything they have to offer. Aleve has saved the day more than once so I did not have to miss making memories with friends and family. For example, one day that I powered through with the help of Aleve was my birthday.
For my birthday I went to a favorite theme park and wanted to spend my whole day at the park doing the things I love doing. I was having so much fun spending the day riding rides and watching entertaining shows. Then the pain hit. My back started hurting and my leg muscles were getting achy. My husband reminded me I had some Aleve in my park bag and I took a dose. It helped me continue on with my day and do everything I wanted to do. It was such a fun day, one that I will remember forever.

Post Theme Park Day Relief
Go for a Soak. Go for a swim and give your overworked muscles a relaxing soak. They will thank you by letting you play again the next day.
Rest. Now that the day is done and you didn’t back down on making memories, give your body a rest.
