Spinal Health Tips Straight From the Clinic - 4th Week
By Genevieve Cunningham
When it’s time to keep your body healthy, who do you look to for advice? Generally, it’s your doctor or a trusted fitness professional. The same rings true for other areas of your life. Cooking advice? Ask a chef … (or maybe mom!). Financial problems? Talk to a financial advisor. And when it comes to eliminating back pain and keeping your spine healthy, take it to the professionals: Chiropractors. Take a look at these quick tips for long-term spinal health that comes straight from the mouths of professionals around the nation.
Stretch Every Day - Too many people skip stretching, which then contributes to stiff muscles, tight ligaments and joints, and endless pain. Get a stretching routine and do it every single day without fail.
Give the Technology a Rest - We’re all addicted, and we all know it. But if you want to protect the spine, you should give it a rest. The posture we hold while on various devices is terrible for the health of our spines. Put your phone down for at least an hour a day. Sit somewhere more comfortable and without bending your neck or, if you can, exercise.
Use Support - Chairs have a headrest for a reason. Use it. Make your office space ergonomic. Buy low back rests for the care of your spine. Use your pillows at night. If support is available, use it to take the strain and work off of the back.
Sleep More - You’re probably not getting enough sleep, and this can contribute to sore muscles, poor posture, and ongoing back pain. Set a bedtime, wind down with yoga, read a book … do whatever it takes. Get more sleep every night to keep your entire body in better health long-term.
Get to the Clinic - If you’re not getting chiropractic care, you really should add it to your normal routine. Chiropractors will properly align your spine using manual manipulation. This may help to eliminate pain, increase flexibility, and improve your spinal (and overall body) health for a lifetime.
