- Exercise regularly
This does not have to be anything overly strenuous. A daily walk can make a huge difference. At the The Live Well center Denver chiropractor office we offer Pilates, which is an excellent source of exercise for anyone with back trouble. Yoga can also be a great form of exercise. Of course you should always consult with your chiropractor before intense exercise.
- Eat a healthy diet
Proper nutrients allow the body to repair itself easier. Denver chiropractor Rene Oubre offers healthy supplements as well as dietary consulting at The Live Well health center.
- Maintain good posture
Are you sitting up straight as you read this? Denver chiropractors at our health center have some excellent products to help our clients at The Denver Live well center.
- Stretch your spine before and after sport
This will also help to loosen up the surrounding muscles. For specific stretching exercises contact a chiropractor. Denver based Live Well Health Center can help you with a stretching routine.
- Don’t overload your backpack or purse
Remember to carry it over both shoulders to balance the load (if possible). It might look cool to have a backpack worn sideways, but you will feel much better carrying it properly.
- Stretch your legs and back after each hour of sitting
Whether in a car or at a desk, stretching regularly will help to keep you from tightening up or injuring yourself further.
- Never cradle the phone between your neck and shoulder.
There are some great corded and cordless options that will make talking on the phone hands free healthier.
- Sleep on your back or side, not on your stomach
This helps to keep your spine in line and reduces the risk of hurting your neck while you sleep. See #9…
