Did you know that your posture could be contributing to your back pain?
Our chiropractor in Newcastle under Lyme cannot stress enough how important it is to have and maintain good posture. The good news is that there are some simple things you can do to improve your posture and help reduce the risk of back pain.
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) have developed a great programme, designed to improve posture and help prevent back pain called Straighten Up UK. The programme is designed to be done on a daily basis – just like brushing your teeth!
It’s a set of simple, three minute straighten up exercises. The programme is divided into three simple sections:
- Stars: Warm Up
- Flying Friends: Posture Care
- Core Balance: Finish the Session
Whatever your age you can participate. However, check with your health care provider before undertaking any new form of new exercise.
