Top 5 Posture Tips from our West Omaha Chiropractor
These top 5 healthy posture tips will help you to enjoy an active and healthy life for many years to come!
Strengthen the Core
A strong core can help to protect the neck and spine as the muscles help to support these two vital parts of our bodies. Add crunches and other core-strengthening exercises to your daily routine to help build the muscles that are supporting your spine.
Shoulders Back and Head Up
Our technologically driven world can cause a whole host of posture problems such as slumped shoulders from working on computers all day as well as excessive strain on the neck from spending too much time looking down at devices. Regular posture checks throughout the day will become a habit once you raise your awareness of proper posture.
Keep it Moving!
If you work in a sedentary job, especially those that have you spending a lot of time in front of a computer, set your phone alarm to prompt yourself to get up and walk around for a few moments at regular intervals throughout your day. At this break time do a few neck rolls and shoulder shrugs to loosen up that area of the body. And then get up and go stretch those legs for a few minutes!
Stretch, Stretch, Stretch
Stretching plays a vital role in good posture and needs to be a regular part of your daily routine. Starting the morning with a few easy stretches can help your body get warmed up and ready to face the day. Stretch regularly in the morning and evening and don't forget to take a few stretch breaks during the work day too!
Maintain Proper Alignment
Our necks and spines can come out of alignment for a variety of reasons, with incorrect posture one of them. Regular chiropractic treatments can help you to maintain a healthy and strong spine. The entire staff at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic is here to work with you to ensure that you maintain great posture and enjoy the benefits that good posture provides.
