Have you ever heard that expression “you’re only as healthy as your spine?” Okay, maybe you haven’t, but it’s a common expression in the medical community. Your spine is inextricably linked to your mobility, not to mention your neuro functionality.
Below are a few ways to keep your back and your spine in mind, which will help with boost mental clarity and overall wellness.
Lose Some Extra Weight
If you’re not at your ideal body weight, this means that you’re putting stress on your back and your joints. Losing that extra weight will help reduce overall wear and tear.
Engage Your Core
This summer, make sure to rock climb, paddleboard, and engage in exercises that incorporate your core stabilizer muscles (think of it as your torso). It’s a great way to build your back, which will help you avoid injury.
Perfect Your Posture
Whether you’re at work or in the car, try to sit with perfect posture. This will help your back, neck, and spine.
