4 Tips to Reduce Work-Related Back Injury

At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we’re in the business of keeping our patients active and living their best lives. A big part of that is providing chiropractic care and advice that helps our patients navigate their everyday lives, including the work place.

Below are a few tips you can incorporate into your daily routine to reduce your chances of getting an injury on the job!

1.) Invest in a Good Chair

If you’re sitting for long periods of time, make sure that you have a good chair with just the right amount of support. Spending a little extra in this department might be a good idea.

2.) Shoes

Just like with your chair, shoes are an equally important investment that need to be considered. Shop for both comfort and support again. If you’re standing for long periods of time, make sure you pick something with a thick sole.

3.) Stretch

Making sure that you do a quick stretch routine at the top of every hour will set you up for a smooth day and help you avoid getting an injury on the job.

4.) Incorporate Conscious Breathing

Breathing deep will help you stay relaxed and help you improve your posture. You’ll also increase your calmness and collectedness, which are two great qualities in a coworker!
