Proper Body Mechanics For The Spine

  • Post category:Social Posts

Practicing proper body mechanics is important for maintaining a healthy spine. Here are some proper body mechanics you should be practicing:

  • Maintain good posture: Maintaining good posture helps you to avoid back pain. Stand up straight with your shoulders back and relaxed. Avoid slouching forward.
  • Avoid sitting for long periods of time: If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time, try getting up every once in a while and stretch or take a little walk. Sitting for a long period of time can put strain on your spine and cause pain.
  • Sleep properly: It’s important that when you’re sleeping you’re sleeping in a supportive position for your spine, you have a supportive mattress, and a supportive pillow.
