Preventing Back Pain









Here are some quick pointers to  prevent back problems:

  • Always stretch before any strenuous activity or every day
  • Don’t slouch when standing or sitting
  • Sit in chairs or car seats with good lumbar support
  • Periodically walk around or gently stretch muscles to relieve tension when sitting
  • Don’t bend over without supporting your back
  • Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes or runners as much as you can
  • Sleep on your side to reduce any curve in your spine, and always sleep on a firm surface
  • Lift with your legs, keeping your back straight
  • Try to control your weight
  • If you smoke, quit; smoking reduces blood flow to the lower spine and causes the spinal discs to degenerate

Like brushing your teeth, have regular chiropractic care with a wellness Chiropractor.

Also, to keep your spine strong, as with all bones, you need to get enough vitamin D every day. 10 minutes in the sun on your arms and legs or take a Practitioner Vitamin D supplement.
