Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t seek treatment when back pain arises.

How to Take Care of Your Back
1. Make Good Posture A Habit Don’t just focus on what mom told you about standing up straight. We have to look at posture in 3 different views. Front to back, side to side and rotation.Take a look in the mirror. Is one shoulder higher than the other? Do you stand with most of your weight on one leg? Are you leaning to one side or rotated one way?Try to even things out by standing on both feet, adjusting your shoulders to be straight or rotating your torso to be aligned. Your body will thank you for finding a neutral position! 2. Flexibility In the Right Places Flexibility is often looked at as the more the merrier. However too much flexibility can also equal lessstability.Lessstabilitycanequalpain.At Austin PT, we view flexibility as proper alignment. WhenpracticingourPostural restorationexercises, which focus on getting your body neutral, flexibility naturally happens. Our rib cage, back & hips are no longer being restricted by misalignment, thus allowing the joints to move freely. 3. Stay Flexible Flexibility is key to maintaining a healthy back. By keeping your body flexible, the normal forces of movement and lifting can be distributed across
the spine, rather than focused on a few segments, whichcan then fail. AtAustinPTwecansetyouup with a home exercise program to ensure continued success that helps with flexibility and mobility. 4. Stay Strong You have hundreds of muscles, which control the movement of your spine. Major muscles that support the spine include your abdominal, pelvic, spinal and hip muscles.
