STRENGTHEN YOUR ABDOMINAL MUSCLES -- Poor muscle
tone in the stomach area puts stress on your back. Exercises that
strengthen and flatten your abdomen will help your back.
WEAR LOW SHOES -- High heels make you arch
your back continuously.
SLEEP WITH YOUR KNEES BENT -- Put a pillow
under your knees if you sleep on your back. The fetal position is the
best for your back.
CHECK YOUR MATTRESS -- If it's too soft, slide
a board between the mattress and box springs. If it's lumpy and sags, it
is time for a new one.
LIFT WITH YOUR LEGS -- Don't bend from the
waist, bend form your knees.
STAND TALL -- Don't slouch.
SEE YOUR CHIROPRACTOR for regular checkups.
