Healthy Back Tips

Stand (and sit) up straight – Don’t slouch!

Stand with weight distributed equally on both feet, and tighten those stomach muscles – even when sitting.

Sleep on Your Back or Side, Never Your Stomach

Avoid sleeping on your stomach, it twists your neck; avoid the fetal position, it reverses your spinal curves.

Stretch Your Spine Before and After Sports

This will also help to loosen up the surrounding muscles

Never cradle the phone between your neck and shoulder

Do Not Overload Your Backpack, Purse or Wallet

Remember to carry it over both shoulders to balance the load (if possible). Keep your wallet out of your back pocket when sitting, especially when driving.

Stretch Your Legs and Back After Each Hour of Sitting

Whether in a car or at a desk, stretching regularly will help to keep you from tightening up or injuring yourself further.

Eat a Healthy Diet

Proper nutrients allow the body to repair itself easier.

Exercise Regularly

Something as simple as a daily walk can make a huge impact on your health.

Invest In A Good Chair, Pillow And Mattress

When you think about the amount of time you use these things each day, it’s worth it.

Have Regular Spinal Check-Ups

It’s much easier to prevent a problem than to correct one.
