Parenthood: Is it Wrecking Your Back?

By Sara Butler

Having kids is a special time in life, especially when they're young. The world is simply full of possibilities and excitement. But caring for a child isn't easy and all that stress can have a big impact on one very important part of your body: your back. Yes, the life of someone with a small child involves a lot of picking up, putting down, carrying, and repetitive actions that can wreak havoc on your back. Here are a few tips to help you keep your spine healthy as you power through parenthood from the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Learn to Lift

You may think that your tiny little bundle of joy barely weighs a thing -- and they may not weigh much! But that doesn't mean that after time even a small child won't put a lot of stress and strain on your back. That's why it's essential that you learn to lift correctly, carry correctly, and put them down correctly. This will help ensure that you don't place more stress on your back than you need to and can help you avoid injury in the process. Talk to the chiropractors at The Joint for some tips to help you understand how to hold, lift, and carry in order to save you the pain later on.

Have the Right Gear

Baby gear is everywhere you turn but it's not all simply for show. The truth is that the right gear, used in the right way, can really help to save your spine in the long run. That's why it's worth the money to invest in a good stroller, an ergonomic baby carrier to keep your child close as you move around, and furniture that won't require you to do too much bending and lifting from a strange angle. If you need guidance, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are a great resource.

Exercise

It can be tough to get back in the swing of things as far as exercise is concerned when you have a little one at home, but it's important that you do. Not simply to help you feel better but also to help prevent injuries associated with caring for a little one. Strengthen the muscles in your core, your back, your arms, and your legs to help you avoid injury and stay healthy.

Parenthood is demanding and can take its toll on your body, but it's also one of the most important things you'll do. The chiropractors at The Joint may not be able to help you with those middle of the night feedings, but they can make sure you're in the best shape to handle it all!
