Lift with your legs: Keep your back straight and the load close to the body, as you lift with your legs. Improper lifting can invite a relapse.
Avoid extreme bending: Use caution when bending or working overhead. Avoid sudden twists and turns.
Get adequate rest: Proper rest is an important element of the healing process. Use a mattress that offers firm support and avoid sleeping on your stomach.
Watch your diet: During the healing process, good nutrition is more important than ever.
Ask questions: Spinal care is new for most people. Understanding your condition and the treatment process is important to assist recovery. We welcome your questions.
Keep appointments: Those that take responsibility for their health generally get faster relief and better results. Your chiropractor has scheduled your care according to your individual needs. Try to avoid changes to a schedule of care without first discussing them with your chiropractor.
