If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve experienced that dull, bothersome throb in the lower back… Or that shooting pain in the shoulders…
Here are 6 hints from your New Tampa Chiropractor to sidestep tormenting pain:
Exercise routinely and with care
Consistent exercise is one of the most straightforward ways to help you keep up your health and well-being. Focus on “cardio” exercise that raises your pulse for 20-30 minutes per day.
Lift cautiously using your knees
Never twist your back when lifting something. Continuously keep your back straight and twist at the knees to lift anything. Make your legs do the bulk of the work. Take your time rather than rushing.
Try not to sit for a really long time
Your body is intended to move, stretch and bend. In the event that you have a job where you spend most of your day sitting down, make sure you get up every once in a while. Stroll around and stretch every 30 minutes. Your muscles will thank you!
Get a decent mattress and pillow
A decent mattress need not be as hard as stone. Try out many mattresses before you purchase one and ultimately pick one that supports your hips and shoulders. Orthopedic pillows can help keep your neck straight in the event that you lie on your side. They’ll keep your posture “in line” if you lie on your back.
Set your work area up ergonomically
Does your work seat prop you up appropriately? Is it customizable? Does the base tilt and slide? A general guideline is to have your thighs practically parallel to the floor with your knees somewhat lower than your hips. In a perfect world you’ll have your arms level around your work area without raising or bringing down your shoulders.
Chiro therapy centers around problems of the musculoskeletal and sensory systems, and the impacts of these on general well-being. The human spine is comprised of 24 free bones called vertebrae, which affect the nerves that control each muscle, tissue and organ of the body. A skewed vertebrae that’s out of place is known as a subluxation– and this when a person experiences pressure on their nerves, causing distress, diminished movements and different manifestations and conditions. Side effects are felt in different parts of the body, stemming from joint dysfunctions in the spine.
