As the years rack up, a lack of care for your spine can lead to pain. So here are some simple tips from our Stoke on Trent chiropractor to help protect your back from future injuries:
1. Walk Regularly
Walking is one of those amazing low-impact exercises that provides countless benefits for your spine. A daily walk will help to strengthen the core muscles that support your spine and provide it with healing nutrients.
2. Eat Well
The food you eat every day plays a major role in determining the overall health of your spine. To give your spine the best chance of good health, try to include lots of vegetables, fruits, meats and whole grains in your diet. It’s also a good idea to eliminate processed foods and reduce your daily intake of sugary drinks.
3. Stand More
Resting may seem like the natural thing to do when your back is aching, but sitting puts three times as much pressure on the spinal discs in your lower back than standing. This means that sitting for prolonged periods of time can lead to serious problems in your lower spine. Whenever there is an opportunity to stand instead of sit, take it!
