Healthy Back Tips

• Exercise Regularly- This does not have to be anything overly strenuous. Something as simple as a daily walk can make a huge difference.
• Eat A Healthy Diet- Proper nutrients allow the body to repair itself easier
• Maintain Good Posture- Are you sitting up straight as you read this?
• Stretch Your Spine Before And After Sports- This will also help to loosen up the surrounding muscles.
• Don’t Overload Your Backpack Or Purse- Remember to carry it over both shoulders to balance the load (if possible).
• Stretch Your Legs And Back After Each Hour Of Sitting- Whether in a car or at a desk, stretching regularly will help to keep you from tightening up or injuring yourself further.
• Never Cradle The Phone Between Your Neck And Shoulder
• Sleep On Your back Or Side, Not On Your Stomach- This helps to keep your spine in line and reduces the risk of hurting your neck while you sleep.
• Invest In A Good Chair, Pillow And Mattress- When you think about the amount of time you use these things each day, it’s worth it.
• Have Regular Spinal Check-Ups- It’s much easier to prevent a problem than to correct one.
