Love Your Spine this Valentines Day

beach-21815_640Valentine’s Day is a day to show your significant other how much you love them. This love is often shown through gifts, like cards, flowers, and candy.

This year, your chiropractors in Vancouver WA want you to go a step further and put effort into loving your spine and back too!

It is easy to forget about this special part of your body, with poor posture, poor sleep habits, and lack of exercise, but there are many ways to show love to your spine:

Use proper posture when sitting down: It may seem like an easy task, but using bad posture while sitting can put a level of strain on your lower back. Try to sit up straight with your shoulders back. You should also make sure that your body weight is evenly distributed between your hips, and your knees should be at a right angle with your feet flat on the floor.

Try to form good sleep habits: When you are asleep, your body uses this time to recuperate and recharge itself from the busy day you had. It is important to sleep using proper posture in order to maximize your body’s charging system.

Increase your core strength: This can greatly remove stress from your back all the way to your core.

Try to manage your weight: Those extra pounds can lead to a great deal of stress on your spine. Managing your weight can help your spine support your body with less strain.

Most importantly, you can show how much you love your back by contacting your chiropractor in Vancouver WA!   A Family and Sports Chiropractic Clinic can provide you with more information about loving your spine this February!

Happy Valentines Day!
