Keeping Your Home Lovely Without Pain

By Virginia Laird

Keeping the house clean is a never-ending task. At times, it can be demanding, requiring heavy lifting. There are many who report suffering with back pain as they scrub the floors, clean baseboards, and accomplish other tasks throughout the house. Still, the work must be done. Chiropractors have offered a few tips you should try to help prevent back pain as you take care of your home, including:

  • Take breaks as you clean
  • Avoid heavy lifting
  • Consider stretching

Take Breaks as You Clean 

For many, once determination to get the house cleaned has taken over your mind, there is no time for distractions. While you may want to get as much done in a few hours, working without breaks can bring about back pain. Chiropractors encourage those who are working to get the household chores done to allow time for breaks. During these breaks you should get off of your feet. Making time to give your back a break can be a key factor in managing and preventing back pain. 

Avoid Heavy Lifting

As you begin to list the mountain of chores that need attention, you may notice that many require heavy lifting. This can put a great deal of strain on both the muscles and the joints of the back. Chiropractors encourage those who suffer with back pain to get help lifting heavy items. Another thought is to break down these loads into smaller, more manageable sizes to help lighten the load.

Consider Stretching

Chiropractors say that stretching before taking on the many chores at home can help you avoid back pain. Stretching helps to release tension in the body that often causes pain. These stretches should always include the back and neck. It is also recommended that you make stretching part of your breaks while you clean.
