Household Chores That Cause Back and Neck Pain

Are you a dab-hand around the house but suffering from back pain? Here our Stoke on Trent chiropractor reveals some of the most common chores that can play havoc with your spine:

1: Vacuuming

Vacuuming is a common culprit when it comes to back pain, mostly because of the repetitive twisting involved.

To lower the risk of back pain, use both hands to vacuum. This will reduce the amount of twisting you have to do and will help to keep your back stable.

2: Dishes

Hunching over a sink to scrub a mountain of dirty dishes can put a heavy strain on your back and neck.

If you are unable to invest in a dishwasher, use a stool to prop up one foot as you wash the dishes. This will help to relieve the pressure on your spine.

 3: Making Your Bed

There are two groups of people who despise making beds – teenagers and those suffering from back pain! The stretching and twisting involved in this chore can lead to serious strain on the spine.  

Instead of trying to reach across the bed, move around the bed each corner at a time.
