Tips for taking care of your back
Whether you have suffered a whiplash injury in Chollerford or a back injury in the past, or want to strengthen up your neck and back in order to avoid these types of injuries in the future, looking after your back and neck is important. Your spine is one of the most crucial parts of your body, helping you to walk and move your limbs and keeping you upright. Many people don’t look after their backs properly and doing so doesn’t mean having to do gruelling exercises, so it is worth using these tips to keep yourself strong and comfortable.
- Have a good posture. This takes some practice, but once you have gotten the hang of standing and sitting straight, with your shoulders down and your chin up, you will feel and look better than ever.
- Use rucksacks. Instead of one-shouldered handbags or sling bags, try to carry anything particularly heavy in a rucksack which evenly distributes the weight and prevents your back from being injured. Wear your rucksack properly and not just on one shoulder.
