Everyday Habits That Can Improve Your Spinal Health

Your spine is an intrinsic and essential part of your body that can influence your overall health. Together with your brain, your spinal cord is a part of your body’s nervous system, which impacts many aspects of daily life. As such, your nervous system can affect the functioning of the body.

Fortunately, there are many everyday habits that you can include in your routine to keep your spine in good health. Read on for some workable advice on how you can maintain your spinal wellbeing on a daily basis.

Back treatment

Healthy Sitting

Many of us spend much of the working day in a seated position at our desks. This can have a huge impact on our spinal health if we are seated incorrectly. Invest in a chair with adjustable neck, back and arm support, where an effective chair will facilitate the proper curvature of your spine as you sit.

Exercise & Stretches

Healthy movement is another great way to maintain your spinal health. Simple back and neck stretches can help you to achieve this as part of your daily routine, whilst other exercises such as walking, swimming and weight training can further help to strengthen and elongate your spine.

Sleep Positions

You can also be working on your spinal health overnight by sleeping in a supportive way. Investing in a firm mattress and pillows is a good starting point, where it is recommended that you sleep on your back so that your spine can remain straight. If you’re sleeping on your side, use an additional pillow to ensure that your back and neck are in alignment.

Visiting Your Chiropractor

An additional way in which you can support your spinal health is by getting in touch with your local chiropractor. Making chiropractic care a regular habit is a great way to ensure that your spine is in optimal health, where your chiropractor will also be able to recommend helpful stretches and exercises to further support your wellbeing.
