When your spine is happy, life is more manageable. A happy spine moves better, experiences less pain, and recovers from injury quicker.
So, what can you do to make sure your spine is happy? Follow these helpful tips.
Nourish your spine with healthy foods.
A happy spine is a healthy spine-and healthy food will help keep your spine well. As a general rule of thumb, your diet should consist of primarily foods that would ‘decay’ if left sitting out and unrefrigerated things like veggies, grass-fed meats, and fruits. Foods high in calcium are also great for preventing common conditions like osteoporosis. Hydration is also vital!
Give your spine support.
This goes beyond sitting in an ergonomic chair. Supporting your spine means strengthening essential muscles to help keep your body upright-particularly the core. Strong core muscles will help give your spine the extra boost it needs to stay in proper posture. Strengthen your core with focused exercises like sit-ups, crunches and side-to-side twists.
Use the right pillow at night.
Not every pillow is created equal! When you climb into bed for the night, you want to use a pillow that promotes the natural curve of your spine and neck. Try a thicker pillow to keep your head and neck held steady between your shoulders for side sleepers. For those who sleep on their back, choose a pillow that doesn’t prop your head up too high as not to disrupt the natural curve of your neck.
