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.
