Everyday Changes and Chiropractic Care
Good chiropractic care is much more than simply going into your Southlake chiropractor’s office. It’s also about making changes to your daily routine and lifestyle while utilizing chiropractic care to fix and maintain your body. One smart, easy change you can make if you have a sedentary lifestyle is to set a timer. This timer can be for every 30 minutes or for one hour, but no longer than an hour apart. When that timer goes off, get up from your chair and move around a little. Do some light stretching, short exercises, or even just walk over to the break room.
Have you ever set up a “posture check” reminder? If you have bad posture, this may be a good idea for you. In addition to a timer to let you know to stand up and move around, you can also set up a timer to alert you about every 15 minutes to correct your posture. When that timer goes off, check yourself. Are you sitting up straight? Is your monitor or screen at eye level with you? Are your shoulders straight and pulled back? If you answered no to any of those, correct your posture and then keep working. You may be surprised at how quickly your posture reverts to a relaxed but bad position as you work. Becoming more consciously aware of your posture will help correct bad posture.
Having a mixture of sitting, standing, and moving around throughout your day provides tremendous relief to your spine. When you are sitting, your spine is compressed by up to 30% more than when you are standing. This daily, continuous compression of the spine can lead to a higher risk for herniated or slipped discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and back pain. Getting great chiropractic care in Southlake will put you on the path back to pain-free.
