Are your clothes hurting your back? Cliffs Chiropractor Southend shares this advice

Here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend we are used to treating patients with bad backs. One of the main common causes of back pain is posture, however, it has been found that the clothes you wear can often do as much damage.

Some of the worst offenders are high heels, heavy handbags and tights jeans or skirts. Being a leading Southend Chiropractor, we have come up with some advice to make sure your fashion choices don’t harm your back.

  •  If you like wearing high heels, try to wear a small heel if possible and alternate shoes everyday, to give you feet and back a break
  • Skinny jeans can grip the waist and thighs, which can make walking normally, impossible. Try not to sit for long periods of time with phones or wallets in you back pocket. This can cause an imbalance with one buttock being higher than the other which in turn can cause back or hip pain
  • We all know that carrying heavy bags can cause strain on neck and shoulder muscles. Don’t over pack your bag and try and not to carry it on the same shoulder, swapping sides regularly will help

If you are suffering from back pain or have any other concerns please get in touch with us as we offer a lot of help and advice to get you back up and running as soon as possible. You can contact us at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend on 01702 430430.

Is slouching making you sad? Shares Cliffs Chiropractor Southend

Here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend we love to share and give advice on how to keep your back safe, with whatever you’re doing, whenever you’re doing it.

Posture, plays a big part in back care and new studies show that slouching and posture can put you at risk from back and neck pain. It has been found that slouching can give feelings of stress, which can then affect energy levels and sleep.

Setting up your computer to protect your back – Advice from a leading Cliffs Chiropractor near Southend

Here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend, we love to share tips and advice on how to keep your back safe and this time we are focusing on ‘computer posture’.

These days, more and more of us are using a computer for large parts of the day; whether it’s at school, work or on the move. When you sit at a computer for a long period of time, you may not be aware that the position you are in could be harmful to your spine.

Below are a few tips to keep you back safe when you are emailing or blogging:

  •  Always make sure that you take time to adjust your chair, particularly if you share your computer with others.
  • Your seat should be adjusted so that your feet are flat on the ground, your knees bent, but with a slope from your hips to your knees. You should end up with your hips higher than your knees and your eyes level with the top of the computer screen. You may need to put the screen on a stand or even on a ream of paper to bring it to the right height.
  • Take regular breaks. Try not to sit at the computer for more than 40 minutes.
