At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we see a lot of patients throughout the year who suffer from back pain that results from the daily wear and tear and everyday living puts us through.
It doesn't matter if you sit at a desk for 40 hours a week or spend your work week on your feet and on the move, your back, neck, and spine need a little TLC year-round. Read on for a few resolutions you can make that will also be good for your back.
1.) Take Up Yoga
Taking a yoga class will be one of the best things you ever did for yourself. Many yoga poses are designed to stretch and strengthen your spine, not to mention increase your range of motion and flexibility. If you live an active lifestyle, you can take a yoga class during one of your off days to engage in a little active recovery. You won't be sorry!
2.) Strengthen Your Back and Your Core
At the gym it might be a popular choice to work on the arms or see how much you can do on the bench press, but investing some to strengthen your back and your core will help you avoid injury. Making sure to incorporate strength training will also help with posture and increase self-confidence.
3.) See Your Local Chiropractor Near You!
One common misconception is that one should only see a chiropractor after experiencing an injury, but chiropractic care also helps patients avoid injury and to relieve the wear and tear of daily life.
