With Mother’s Day being celebrated this Sunday we thought we would give all you wonderful mums a gift to keep your backs safe:)
Our chiropractor at Cliffs Chiropractic Southend recommends you follow these three simple pieces of advice to keep your back in ship shape condition throughout the year.
Firstly, improving your level of fitness and muscle tone is a good way to reduce the likelihood of injuring yourself. Speak to your chiropractor, GP or other healthcare provider for advice about exercises you can do to develop your core strength. Simple activities such as stretching and should shrugging are also great ways to keep your back in line.
Secondly, remember to always lift with your spine straight and with your knees bent to avoid leaning, stretching or bending.
Thirdly, avoid sitting for long periods of time by taking regular breaks, standing up, stretching and walking around. When you are sitting maintain a good posture. Keep as much of your body in contact with the seat as possible with your knees lower than your hips.
Happy Mother’s Day from all our team at Cliffs Chiropractic in Southend.
