Nobody wants to be in pain, so make 2018 your most pain-free year yet with these top back care tips from our team at Witney Chiropractic Clinic:
1: Always bend at your knees and hips, not your back.
2. Avoid twisting and bending at the same time.
3. Lift and carry heavy objects as close to your body as possible.
4. Carry heavy items in a rucksack with two straps and avoid one-shoulder bags.
5. Work on improving your posture
6. Quit smoking
7. Lose excess weight to reduce pressure on your joints.
8. Choose a mattress suited to your height, weight, age and sleeping position. A good tip is to opt for a mattress that’s not too hard, not too soft, but supportive and comfortable.
These are simple ways to keep your back in good health this year. Start putting them into place today; you will reap the benefits and reduce your risk of developing chronic back pain.
Small changes make a big difference!
