HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BACK

You’re in luck: Back pain can be cured! The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke covers a number of back pain remedies. These include the use of strength exercise, physical therapy, and medication. Where medication is considered, anti- inflammatory drugs, analgesic medications, and counter-irritants are the most popular. Before you can treat your back pain, however, you need to know why it started. Whether you’ve tweaked a muscle or have a deeper injury, a our certified physical therapists at Achieva Rehab can help. Back Pain Prevention A little prevention goes a long way. If you want to avoid future back pain, it is important to make sure you’re taking care of your back. You can do this by: 1. Lift Properly You pick things up constantly. Even if you’re lifting something light, make sure you’re facing the object. Squat, keeping your

spine straight. Lift with your leg muscles, as this will reduce the pressure placed on your spine. 2. Use Good Posture When you’re standing, imagine a string is attached to the top of your head — lifting you up. This will keep your hips, spine, shoulders, and neck aligned. If you’re sitting, don’t slouch. 3. Participating In Strength Training. Your body has hundreds of muscles. These muscles protect and control your spine. By doing activities such as walking, running, or swimming, you can keep them strong and train them to stay that way. In doing so, you’ll easily control quick, lifting movements.
