4 Steps for Building a Better Back

By Genevieve Cunningham

You may have heard of the importance of keeping your back healthy and strong. We use our backs for just about everything, so its general health is an important part of our overall well-being. But, other than avoiding accident or injury, what can really be done to protect and strengthen the state of our backs? If you’d like to boost the health of your back and build a better support system for your body, check out these helpful tips.

Lift Weights

When we first think about weights, we often think of building big biceps or massive quads. But, weights can also be used to build your back muscles and encourage stability. If you don’t currently lift, start out with a small weight and simple movements. If you’re more experienced, make your routine fit your current fitness level. The stronger the muscles, the less strain everyday activities will put on your back, and the more potential there is to be pain-free.

Do Yoga

Even serious hard-core athletes participate in this gentle, yet challenging activity. Yoga allows you to stretch your muscles and ligaments farther while building greater strength at the same time. As a bonus, it also promotes deep breathing, a clear mind, and a calmer presence. Check out your local gym to find some great classes, and be patient. It might take a while to get the hang of it, but it will definitely be worth your patience and effort.

Get More Rest

Because we use the backs so much, they are prone to exhaustion and injury. To help negate this and keep your back healthier overall, make sure that you are getting plenty of rest. Improve your sleeping habits with a solid routine and comfortable support, and rest throughout the day when needed. Rest is critical for healing, rejuvenation, and overall protection, so take it easy from time to time.

See Your Chiropractor

If you really want a healthier back, you should see the spine expert, also known as the chiropractor. Chiropractors will search your spine for problem spots where the spine is misaligned, correct those spots, and subsequently reduce pain and boost general health. It’s one of the best ways to protect your back and keep it strong and healthy. If you’d like to try this method, check out The Joint Chiropractic.
