When you are standing, imagine a string through the top of your head lifting you straight up. This puts your neck, shoulders, spine, and hips in natural alignment. While sitting, make sure you sit back in the chair with your feet on the floor and your lower back supported. Your shoulders should not slouch when sitting. Avoid soft couches when you can. 2. Lift Properly Picking things up is a normal part of our day. Even if you pick up something light, your back muscles have to lift the weight of your upper torso and control that movement. Make sure you always face what you need to pick up, squat keeping your spine straight and push with your leg muscles. This helps reduce the excessive pressure on your spine. 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 onto a few segments, which can then fail. An easy stretching routine every day can keep you feeling great and put a spring in your step. 4. Stay Strong You have hundreds of muscles, which control the movement of your spine. Major muscles that support the spine are called your core and include your abdominal, pelvis, spinal and hip muscles. By keeping your core muscles strong, you support your spine and have the ability to easily control lifting, quick movements, bending and a lot more.

5. Physical Therapy Our physical therapists are medical experts in evaluating spine and body movement. By having a regular check up, you can make sure your body is in good condition to tackle the activities you love. If you have a history of back pain, injury or are currently experiencing aches and pains, we can analyze your problem and construct a treatment program that will work best for your individual problem. With soothing hands-on therapy and targeted easy exercises we can help you return quickly to feeling your best. Even if you suffer from severe pain we can help you get out of pain and living the life you deserve.

Patient Success Spotlight


“I was in an auto accident — rear ended by a semi-truck. Chiropractic and massage really helped, but one area in the midback was not getting better. I tried acupuncture, inversion table, exercise on my own, but just didn’t know what would be best. My chiropractor — having heard good things from previous patients — referred me to OSR. I was immediately impressed with the upbeat positive attitude of all staff members, including being greeted by the front desk staff. The attention given to me in my rehab has been inspiring. If my form gets sloppy, I am encouraged to correct in a positive way. I would HIGHLY recommend OSR to ANYONE in need. I will be forever grateful to all staff for all the positive encouragement, and helping to repair my hurt back.” - Jonny S. I was immediately impressed!
