Are bad habits causing you back pain?

Sometimes we can cause ourselves unnecessary pain and discomfort by not correcting bad postural habits.Often it’s something quite simple like not facing your computer monitor straight, just angling your neck to the left or right when typing in your office chair can build up problems for your spine over a period of time.

Or are you sitting all day without getting out of your chair? It may sound silly but when you’re concentrating on something or you’ve a deadline to meet, it’s all too easy to find you’ve not got up out of your chair for several hours to have a walk or stretch. Your body needs variation and movement, so get into the habit of getting out of your chair frequently.

And it’s not just at work either. You should never sleep on your stomach as it puts a lot of strain on your upper back. Try to always sleep on your back, but if you do need to sleep on your side try and change position several times during the night.

You can find more details in an article by Chiropractor, Dr Jeffrey A Sklar that discusses these and other do’s and dont’s for your neck and back in a recent post to his Blog.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
