10 Healthy Back Tips

10 Healthy Back Tips

  • Exercise regularly. This does not have to be anything overly strenuous, something as simple as a daily walk can make a huge difference.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Proper nutrients allow the body to repair itself easier.
  • Maintain good posture. Are you sitting up straight as you read this?
  • Stretch your spine before and after sports. This will also help to loosen up the surrounding muscles.
  • Do not overload your backpack or purse. Remember to carry it over both shoulders to balance the load (if possible).
  • 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.
  • Never cradle the phone between your neck and shoulder.
  • Sleep on your back or side, not on your stomach. This helps to keep your spine in line and reduces the risk of hurting your neck while you sleep.
  • Invest in a good chair, pillow and mattress. When you think about the amount of time you use these things each day, it is worth it.
  • Have regular spinal check-ups. It is much easier to prevent a problem than to correct one.
