We here at Royal Chiropractic & Wellness of Boca Raton believe that life is better when your back and spine are pain-free!
Oftentimes, people do not think about their spines on a daily basis. And why would they? If you are pain-free, as you should be, why think about it? However, people quickly realize how important a healthy spine is once they experience neck or back pain.
Having a healthy back requires a lot of attention and care. Sometimes though, our modern lifestyles don’t always encourage this. Take note of a few simple tips to use in your everyday life to keep your spine healthy and pain-free.
1 – Schedule Regular Visits With a Chiropractor
Going to your chiropractor makes your body feel great, but it does so much more. Not only will your spine be in better condition, but your body will be able to function better. A healthy spine allows your blood to flow smoothly, your immune system to function properly, and even your senses to work better.
2 – Get Adequate Amounts of Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important things for your body’s health. Did you know that not getting enough quality sleep may actually worsen inflammation and pain? While most Americans average 6.5 hours per night, our bodies actually require seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. It’s important to maintain a comfortable position throughout the night as well, since poor sleep positions can aggravate back pain.
3 – Stop Staring Down at Your Cell Phone
Try to avoid a “cricked neck” by keeping your phone at eye level. Years of poor posture while using cell phones can eventually lead your spine to curve. A human head weighs around ten pounds. As you tilt your head forward and downward, gravity dramatically increases the weight on your neck.
4 – Stretch Out After Extended Computer Use
Take a moment to stretch often when you are working on your laptop or computer. Move your body in the opposite direction by bending your head back and glancing upward. Roll your shoulders up and down. Take stretch breaks throughout the day.
These four tips can be very helpful in changing your life. But if you still feel something is amiss, see a chiropractor at Royal Palm Chiropractic & Wellness right away. Our friendly and knowledgeable office can figure out your spinal issue, and why your back or neck hurts and help you find a fix ASAP.
