The weather is finally looking nice and we’re all anxious to get outside and enjoy the sun. Now that we have the opportunity to go outside for a walk or a run, don’t forget to work back into a routine. You may be tempted to go out and attempt an intense workout but remember that your body needs the time to adjust properly. A short walk and stretch period may be best to get your body back into nice-weather mode. Heat therapy can help soothe muscle strain and prevent cramping as well.
Getting plenty of sleep this spring will be sure to keep you and your spine in tip-top shape. Getting proper rest is crucial to our body’s daily maintenance and recovery. If you are having trouble sleeping, try setting a routine. By only using the bedroom for sleep, you can help shake off bad habits of restless sleep.
Good posture is key to a healthy spine. Remember to sit up at your desk at work and don’t slouch on your couch. Proper posture not only looks good, but keeps your spine in good alignment. A misaligned spine can lead to a plethora of problems including pain and discomfort. If you feel you may be slouching, use a mirror to correct your posture.

Think of your back like a guitar. When the guitar is in perfect tune, the instrument sounds wonderful. On the contrary, when the guitar is out of tune, it doesn’t sound very pleasant. The same can be said about our spine. When it is in good alignment, our health is in check. When it isn’t, our body is thrown off because our central nervous system controls the majority of our body. The spine is constantly in communications with our brain, nerves, and cells. Instead of natural care motives, most people resort to prescription medication. People are encouraged to seek alternative methods to potentially harmful medications. Chiropractic care is a great way to stay healthy, reinforce spine strength, and keep the spine in good alignment – promoting a healthy back and a healthy lifestyle.
A chiropractor can be your best line of defense in combating spine health. To learn more about the spine, search Dr. Anthony Leone’s Knowledge Center.
