 | Resources > Healthy Back Tips

  1. Exercise Regularly- This does not have to be anything overly strenuous. Something as simple as a daily walk can make a huge difference.
  2. Eat A Healthy Diet- Proper nutrients allow the body to repair itself more easily.
  3. Maintain Good Posture- Are you sitting up straight as you read this? Obtain and use a lumbar coll to correct sitting posture.
  4. Stretch before and after exercise- This will also help to loosen up the surrounding muscles.
  5. Don't Overload Your Backpack Or Purse- Remember to carry it over both shoulders to balance the load (if possible).
  6. Wear a headset rather than cradle the phone between your neck and shoulder.
  7. Sleep On Your back Or Side, Not On Your Stomach- This helps to minimize the stresses on your back and neck while sleeping.
  8. Invest In A Good Chair, Pillow And Mattress- When you think about the amount of time you use these things each day, it's
    worth it.
