Spinal Health & Wellness

You know that your spine is an essential component of your overall quality of life, so it is vital to take care of it. The following are just a few tips to help you do that provided by Dr. Lindsay at Synchronicity Chiropractic Studio in Encinitas.

.

Be Active

Exercise is an important part of your overall health. It helps you maintain your weight, which ensures that your spine only needs to support the amount it’s designed to hold up. It improves your blood circulation and keeps your muscles strong to hold your spine upright. It also keeps your ligaments and tendons flexible, reducing the risk of injury.

Take Breaks

It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting, standing, or working, you need to take breaks. Being in one position for too long and repetitive movements can put unnecessary strain on the spine and connective tissue. It’s important to take breaks, move around, and stretch.

Mind What You Eat and Drink

What you take into your body can either fuel it or hurt it, but it can be hard to make big changes on your own. Nutritional counseling is a great way to be guided through the changes while getting the support and information you need to make the best choices.

Practice Proper Posture

Always practice good posture. If you let your shoulders sag or put too big of a curve in your spine, it puts unnecessary pressure on your musculoskeletal system. Many people set posture check alarms on their phones to remind them every hour or so to roll their shoulders back and straighten their spine.

Lift Correctly

Never lift with your back. This is a sure way to end up with an injury and a great deal of back pain. Always lift with your legs. If you are getting tired, take a break. Muscle fatigue can make it difficult to remember how to lift the right way.

Visit Your Chiropractor

Don’t forget regular visits to your chiropractor for spinal adjustments and other treatments. Spinal adjustments help ensure that every joint and disc is in its proper place. Other treatments help relieve tension, improve posture, relieve compression, and more.

Our chiropractor will also provide recommendations that you can follow in your daily life to ensure optimal spinal health. This includes nutritional counseling, which will not only benefit your spine but the rest of your body, as well.
