Chiropractor in Witney advises how to look after your back 

You do need to be careful of all the heavy listing, twisting and bending down but you can in fact still enjoy plenty of baking and remain pain free if you follow our advice;

The shopping – All that sugar and flour can weigh quite a bit and it’s important you don’t carry shopping bags that are too heavy and full. Spread the load and shop frequently to avoid this.

The baking– Be careful of the height of the counter-top. Baking can be a time consuming activity and if you’re leaning over a counter that is too high or too low then you can cause yourself problems. If too low, prepare food on a chunky chopping board to boost the height and if too low try and spread your legs further apart to lower yourself without stooping over.

You can also cause your back a lot of grief by lifting heavy pots and pans, twisting your back when carrying heavy items and bending over a lot. Just ensure you follow standard lifting procedure here and lift with your legs, carry heavy objects in the direction you’re facing and take regular rests.
