SPINAL WELLNESS TIPS

Chiropractic: What Is It? Using a Natural Systemic Healing Method

Standing

Wearing supportive shoes and practicing proper posture are important if you anticipate spending a lot of time standing. The secret to a healthy spine is proper posture. Maintain a straight chin and back shoulders. Maintain a shoulder-width distance between both feet.
 

Working at a Desk

Even if you only take a little stroll, make sure you get up every thirty minutes to stretch. Next, check to see that you are seated properly. Ensure the chair you are using provides adequate support for your lower back. Additionally, you should have your knees at a 90-degree angle and your feet flat on the ground. Bring a stool to work if you need one to support your feet while doing this. It is important that your computer screen be at eye level so that you are not gazing down at it.
 

Lifting

One of the most popular ways to hurt oneself is by lifting something. With one foot slightly in front of the other, begin by stooping down to approach the item. Remain upright, bending only at the hips and knees. Maintain a forward gaze while straightening your legs and maintaining your back straight to elevate the thing. Keep the item near your body. When picking anything up, never twist. Once you are completely upright, turn only. When you place the thing back down, remember the same concept.
 

Warming Up for Physical Activity

Make sure you are sufficiently warmed up if you anticipate working or playing for a considerable amount of time. If you don't prepare your body, it's simple to pull anything, even when you're only doing light tasks like riding your kid on a bike or gardening.
 

Talking On The Telephone

If you're forced to use the telephone for a long period of time, a speaker or a headset is a must. Do not cradle the phone between your neck and your shoulder as this could cause you to damage the muscles or vertebrae in that area.

Resting or Sleeping

It is fairly normal to strain your neck or back when you are sleeping. We frequently find ourselves dozing off in postures that may not provide adequate support or with our necks positioned awkwardly. In order for your head and neck to rest neutrally with the rest of your spine, make sure your cushion supports them. It is not advisable to sleep on your stomach since it strains your back and neck.
