3 Tips for a Healthy Spine:
- Stretch Daily – Stretching the legs, spine and neck will reduce the chances of injury. Find a quiet time of day, maybe 15 minutes before bed and do some basic stretches. You will sleep better and wake up with more flexibility.
- Lift Properly – The best way to minimize the risk of injury is to keep the object as close to your body as possible. Always use your legs for power and remember to keep the same posture when putting down the object as when you lifted it.
- Stay Active – “A body in motion stays in motion.” With lack of exercise comes tight, weak muscles. When we do increase the stress to the muscles, we increase our chances of injury. Decide what physical exercise you enjoy and create a routine. Try all forms of cardiovascular and muscular exercise. It all helps!
Incorporating physical activity on a weekly basis becomes a habit and a lifestyle. Advanced Physical Medicine Center has a knowledgeable staff and multiple services all under one roof!
