When considering our health and quality of life, we often take our spines for granted. But a strong and healthy spine really is essential to achieving overall health. And it’s really easy to keep your back in tip top condition with these simple exercise tips from our London chiropractor:
Range of motion exercises such as stretching and bending. Doing these every day will help to keep your spine flexible which will help to relieve stiffness.
Strengthening exercises such as with gentle weight lifting or using machines. (Make sure you seek the advice of an exercise instructor to avoid injury.) Strong muscles help to support and protect the spine, so do these exercises regularly and at a comfortable pace.
Aerobic exercises such as walking, biking, tennis, and swimming. Do these 2 to 3 times a week if you can.
No matter how old you are, regular physical activity is one of the most effective ways to stay healthy. Start to incorporate these three types of exercises into your daily routine and it won’t be long until your spine is rewarding you for your kindness!
Hope these tips are helpful! Start today and reap the rewards of good health!
