10 Ways to Insure that Your Spine Lives as Long as You Do

  1. Change positions every 30 min. or so whether standing or sitting.  Our bodies are designed to move, not be in the same position all day.
  2. Standing posture- stand with one foot slightly in front of the other with your knees slightly bent.
  3. Use correct lifting technique:  Face the object, squat down, either with both legs or put one knee down on the floor. Lift with your legs, then keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting. If it’s really heavy, ask for help, OR if you have to move it, push it with your legs rather than pull it. 
  4. Sleeping posture- sleep on a bed and pillow that feel comfortable for you.  Put pillows under your knees if on your back or between your knees if on your side.  Avoid sleeping on your stomach.
  5. Working posture- take breaks regularly. Use a chair that is the right size, with built-in back support.  If your feet don’t touch the ground, put your feet on a little stool.  Do not carry a heavy bag on either shoulder every day, put the bag around your neck, or put items in a handheld carrier.  Do not cross your legs, except at the ankles and check your workstation to make sure it is ergonomically sound.   
  6. Diet- eat lots of organic produce and foods with a high nutritional content, drink lots of pure water.  Take at least a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement daily since it has been proven that we can no longer get all of the nutrients necessary for good health from our food.
  7. Exercise and Stretch daily - clean your house, go to the gym, take a walk, do yoga, swim or ride your bike. Have a goal to move some part of your body daily. 
  8. Stop smoking- Smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues. Smokers have more spinal pain than nonsmokers, and they also heal more slowly when they have back pain.
  9. Wear comfortable shoes with a low heel daily.  
  10. See your chiropractor regularly to make sure your spine and nerves are functioning at their best. This will keep your body strong and you feeling younger!
