Watch Your Back Putting Up The Decorations

If you’re planning on putting your Christmas decorations up in the next few weeks (as many of us are!) our chiropractors at Cliffs Chiropractic Clinic want to remind you to take care of your back. After all you don’t want to ruin your Christmas with back pain!

It’s surprising how much lifting, carrying and stretching is involved in this fun task!

From rummaging in the attic for the decorations, buying the tree, getting the decorations up, wrapping the presents there’s plenty of stresses put on your back. There’s also a possibility you may even need to use a ladder!

Why not spend a few minutes watching these two videos that demonstrate how to lift, carry and use a ladder and keep your back safe.

Yes we know the Lift and Carry one is done for gardening and the DIY one is for well DIY but the techniques all hold true for Christmas Decorating.

One thing that’s not covered in the videos is wrapping the presents! Avoid using the floor as it puts to much stress on your back so find a table or work top to work at instead.

Happy Christmas Decorating from our team at Cliffs Chiropractic Clinic in Southend
