Unlearning the Habits that are Hurting your Spine

When it comes to spinal health habits, everyone has room for improvement

The most ubiquitous spinal habits which cause harm include:

  • Poor diet
  • Poor posture
  • Poor lifting technique
  • Smoking
  • Lack of exercise 
  • Overuse of technology

Many of these malefactors go hand-in-hand; for example, lack of exercise and poor diet leads to weight gain which makes good posture more difficult; overuse of technology contributes to lack of exercise and poor posture. But all of these factors lead down the same road, the one that points toward back pain. The sooner we realize this, the sooner we can start exercising control over the factors that matter for keeping our spines healthy. 

Initiating a chain reaction of change in your spinal health habits

The first step is awareness. But how many of us are aware of our harmful habits, yet feel stuck in a cycle and do nothing about them? At Holmes Chiropractic, one of our priorities is giving you the motivation and desire for a healthier spine. But rather than a kick in the backside, we focus on using gentle adjustments and work on the soft tissues surrounding the spine to give you a taste for how good it feels to have a back free of stiffness and pain. We restore alignment to the spine, improving range of motion, boosting circulation and reducing pain. From this vantage point, we can show you how to make simple changes that will effect great improvements in your spinal health habits.

This is the only spine you get 

This seems to be an underappreciated fact. Remember that the spine is a depreciating asset, but it is one of the most important assets you have and it is a center of wellness.
