7 Practical Back-Saving Tips

Physiotherapy for Back pain in Sherwood Park

 

➤ Start a regular exercise program to keep your back and abdominal muscles  flexible and strong.

 

➤ Always face forward with your shoulders, feet and hips when you’re lifting or carrying.

 

➤ Keep walkways, stairs and halls clear. Be on the lookout for tripping or slipping hazards. 

 

When seated, support your lower back with a pillow or a rolled-up towel.

 

➤ Push, don’t pull. You’ll have twice as much power and less chance of injury.

 

➤ Sleep on your side or your back.

 

➤ Rest one foot on a foot- stool when you’re standing.

 

➤ Lift with your legs, not your back. Remember: legs lift, backs break.
