Tiny Changes that Make a Big Impact on Your Spine

If you want to improve your health, you might need to make some very big changes to your daily life. That can be a scary concept when we are already so busy. Luckily, however, big changes aren’t always necessary. Sometimes it’s some very small, but deliberate changes that can make all of the difference in your health. This is especially true when it comes to the health of your spine. Your spinal health is dependent on some very small, but very important key points. Check out these very tiny tips for keeping and improving your spinal health.

Move More

It is absolutely imperative that you stay active. This change might seem like it will take a lot of work, but really you can add a lot of movement fairly easily. Instead of parking in the front spot, park at the back. Instead of taking the escalator at the mall, take the stairs. At the end of the day, make a quick lap around your office before you leave. While you’re cooking dinner, march in place. If you really try, there are some very simple ways to get in some movement without making a huge change.

Set the Phone Down

I know you love your smart phone. I do too! But, in all honesty, our phones and devices are killing our spines. If you want to keep your spine healthy, put down the phone from time to time. The posture that we maintain while on our devices is horrendous. Shoulders slumped, necks bent. Of course that is bad for your spine! In order to keep your body, mind, and spine healthy, it is imperative that you take a break from technology, and preferably, move. (see above!)

Get Chiropractic Care

When it comes to the health of your spine, chiropractic care is one of the best things that you can add to your regular routine. A chiropractor may be able to help keep your spine aligned leading to less pain and tension and a healthier back in general. Chiropractic care can also lead to other healthy benefits like a boosted immune system, better digestion, and a greater range of motion for your body.
