Simple Tips For A Healthy Spine
Chronic back pain can make your day complex and less enjoyable. Here is a list of tips to help you tackle the growing problem of back pain. While they may seem obvious, there is a strong need to repeatedly emphasize these tips for good posture and body mechanics.
Tip #1: Invest in a good lumbar support for office chairs
Prolonged sitting hours in the office chair can have a severe, adverse impact on the spinal discs and the back muscles. Most people tend to slouch down thus leading to the overstretching of spinal ligaments. To avoid these situations and minimize the pressure on the back while working for long hours, look for the best lumbar support for office chair.
Tip #2: Do not ignore your posture while driving
Long trips and congested roads make the driver spend long hours on the move. The spinal discs can feel the pressure while driving in the same posture for a long time and must therefore be provided with sufficient support while driving. Adjust your lumbar support for car seats appropriately and take regular breaks if you are driving for hours together.
Tip #3: Exercise to strengthen your back muscles
For the spine to be strong, the muscles of the lower back and the abdominal muscles must be strong and supple. The best way to achieve stronger muscles is through targeted exercises performed on a regular basis.
Tip #4: Enjoy a massage occasionally
Indulge in a good therapeutic back massage once in a while. Massages increase blood flow, and allow greater secretion of the naturally occurring painkiller, endomorphin, thus relieving the stress and pressure on the spine.
There are big potentials in life’s little moments. Sitting in office chair. Sitting in driving seat. Sleeping in the bed. Sleeping during long flight. We make the products that help make these moments a little cozier and healthier.
