A healthy spine. Posture is important for your life -- Part One

Real Estate Agent with CoastalVa Realty Inc

A few months ago I pulled a muscle and by the time I made it to the chiropractor, I could barely support my self. By the time I left, I felt better and within a couple of days I had forgotten about the whole ordeal. Yesterday, while camping we were picking up heavy things, and I saw both my kids bending and picking up stuff without bending their knees. Several years ago I picked up a heavy box that way, and I was in continuous pain for the following two years. I wish I had known about chiropractors back then.
Posture in bussines is extremely important. We make our opinions of someone we just met during the first 7 seconds. Socially, it works the same. Whenever I am about to meet a new client or a new friend, I think of three things. Smile, stand up straight and talk with a clear
Chiropractor Virginia Beach VA- Dr Michael Vanellavoice.
So in honor of my friend Dr Michael Vanella the best chiropractor in Virginia Beach, I 
share some information he has shared with me.

Tips for a Healthy Spine

A healthy spine is an often overlooked and essential part of a healthy lifestyle. People who suffer from back pain, particularly if it is long-term, are generally less healthy than those who do not. In fact, back pain costs are staggering not only financially, but also in terms of lost time from work and because of psychosocial problems that arise during the healing process associated with long-term back pain.

Unfortunately, approximately 80-90% of the population suffers from spinal pain at some point. People who are overweight or obese, and who smoke, lift heavy objects, or had a previous episode of back pain, are more likely to experience

back pain.

Because so many people suffer from spine pain, it’s important for you to try to keep your spine as healthy as possible. Following simple posture, lifting, and healthy lifestyle guidelines can help you keep your back in good shape.

The American Chiropractic Association recommends that you take care of your self specially while performing the following activites.

Standing, Lifting, Sitting, Reaching and Bending, Carrying, Healthy diet an exercise, sleeping and smoking.

Thanks for the post. No one knows how a bad back can effect your life until you have one. Yoga is a wonderful posture saving exercise. I uffer from a bad back for years and this is the onlt thing that seems to work. Sitting at a computer for hours is very painful.

I see Tere's comment above mine. I had also heard about sitting on a big ball at the computer instead of in a chair.
