Tips to Save Your Back Today
Your back, neck, and spine might be something you take for granted, but all three are intricately tied to the way you move around, the way you sit, pretty much the way you do anything. When our backs and necks get all out of whack, that’s when we really truly begin to understand how important they are.
The problem is, many of us start to experience back and neck pain when we’ve already done some considerable damage. Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few ways to take care of your back.
Strengthen Your Back
Your back is something that needs to be exercised and strengthened, that way it can properly protect your spinal cord. As you begin to work your core more, you’ll start to feel stronger. You’ll also start to notice yourself feeling worse when you skip back day at the gym.
Stretch it Out
Do yoga or at the very least include a stretch routine post-workout. You should try to do a half-hour or more of stretching for every hour you’re physically active.
Lift and Sit Properly
Sitting with good posture is one of the best things you can do for your back and spine. Sitting with poor posture is a surefire way to give yourself problems down the road. Lifting properly is another measure you can take that will have your back thanking you down the road.
If you experience lingering back and neck pain that persists more than a day or two, contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation. We’ll get to the root of your problem and have you feeling great again.
