Want to know three easy ways to avoid back pain? Our Newcastle under Lyme chiropractor has them right here:
Work Your Core!
You spine loves exercise! And it needs it to function properly. Unfortunately, most of our core muscles (which are vitally important to good spine health) are not used much during the day. These muscles need to be toned through targeted exercise – even just 20 minutes a day can help support your spine and take pressure off your lower back.
Wear Good Shoes
Your shoes need to support your spine, whether you’re walking for exercise or just going about your daily business. Buy shoes from a reputable shoe shop and ask a store assistant to point you in the direction of shoes that provide a supportive base.
The discs in your lower spine are under 3 times more pressure while sitting than standing, so avoid sitting for long periods whenever you can. You should also maintain good posture – whether you’re seated or not!
Put these tips into practice and you could significantly reduce your risk of developing a painful back condition.
