Keeping Your Spine Healthy and Happy

By Donna Stark

There are so many wonderful experiences to be had in life. From skiing down black diamond courses to making the game-winning touchdown to rocking your brand-new baby to sleep, life is filled with one special moment after the next, and that is exactly why it is important to keep your spine as healthy as you can. But what does that mean? How does a spine stay healthy? After all, it's not like there are "healthy spine" pills filling your local drugstore's shelf, are there? Well, if you aren't sure where to start, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They can help set you (and your spine) straight!  

Keeping Your Spine Healthy and Happy

A healthy and happy spine will keep you moving with ease but that's not all. It will also keep those special moments in life moving in your direction. You just need to stay on top of the following do's and don'ts.

  • Do - Keep your core strong! Daily exercises will help strengthen your core muscles which can improve stability to your spine.
  • Do - Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Adequate water consumption will help lubricate and cushion both your joints and spinal cord.
  • Do - Stretch before physical activity. Stretching before your workouts or that round of golf will help reduce the risk of muscle strain and injury.
  • Don't - Sleep in the wrong position. Sleeping on your stomach puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the spine and neck. Try moving onto your back instead.
  • Don't - Live a sedentary life. Sitting for long periods of time can lead to significant back problems down the road. Make sure you get up and move throughout the day.

The Most Important Do of All
