Spine-Friendly Tips From Your Chiropractor

By Donna Stark

Because the path to being our very best selves can be filled with one roadblock after another, many of us will often turn to the professionals for tips. From trainers to coaches to counselors to consultants, there is certainly enough help out there, but if you are looking for someone who can help you achieve all of our health and fitness goals, you may want to think about seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. A healthy spine can lead to a healthier life so be sure to check out the following tips from your chiropractic professionals below.

Pay Attention to How Much You Sit

Believe it or not, excessive sitting has become a huge health issue for people of all ages. Sitting for long periods of time can weaken bones, decrease muscle mass and strength, and increase the risk of serious health conditions, such as diabetes, blood clots, and heart disease. Make sure that you are stretching or taking a short walk at least every 30 minutes or so during your days. And pay special attention to your posture too!

Use the Proper Form to Lift

An object doesn't have to be super-heavy to injure yourself while lifting. In fact, injuries can occur by lifting even the smallest of items. That's why it is more important to focus on your form than on the actual weight of an object. Keep your back straight, squat next to the object you want to lift, engage your leg muscles, and avoid twisting your body while lifting. You should also make sure your path is free and clear of any obstacles or hazards.

Warm Up for Physical Activity

If you are planning on being physically active, make sure that you are adequately warmed up by engaging in some light stretches or a short walk. Even if you don't expect to exert a lot of energy, it is still important to do so to reduce the risk of injury. You would be surprised how easy it is to pull a muscle while performing even the "lightest" of activities, such as gardening or swimming.

Get Adjusted Regularly

By placing your spine in proper alignment, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can remove the joint dysfunction and nerve interference that is wreaking havoc on your body's major systems. Routine chiropractic care is one of the best ways to reduce pain, improve health, and decrease the risk of further degeneration in your body.
