You Can Prevent Back Pain This Winter
Back pain is a major problem for many people today -- in fact, it's one of the most common problems that people see our chiropractor during the winter months. There are several ways that you can help prevent back injury this winter, including the following.
- Proper Lifting - Proper lifting is key when it comes to preventing back pain. When you lift a box -- or anything else of significant weight -- it's important that you do so by bending down and standing up the right way. Bend at your knees, planting feet apart at staying well balanced. Never bend from your waist -- it's a common cause of back injuries today. As you lift the object, use a slow and controlled motion, avoiding any jerky or sharp movements.
- Strength Building Exercises - One of the best ways to avoid back injury this winter is to have a strong core. There are many specialized exercises that can help you strengthen the muscles that support your back. Our chiropractor, Dr. Twit, can create a personalized exercise plan just for you -- and the best part is that you can do these prescribed exercises in just minutes at home each day. No reason to brave the freezing weather, either: They're quick indoor exercises perfect for wintertime.
