5 Ways to Love Your Spine this Valentine’s Day
While Valentine’s Day is typically about showing how much you love and care for that special someone in your life, that’s not the only way
you can celebrate the holiday.
At VIP Health, we’re showing some love to one of our most important body parts—our spine!
Want to do the same? Here are a few ways you can make sure your spine gets some much-needed TLC.
Start your morning with a glass of water. Between each vertebrae of your spine is a shock-absorbing disc made up of mostly water. Keeping
your body hydrated is crucial to helping your spine move correctly.
Choose supportive shoes to go about your day. If you’re running errands or spending a lot of time in shoes, sometimes, picking function over
fashion is much better for your body!
Be mindful of your posture. Simply being aware of whether or not you’re slouching your shoulders or carrying your head too far forward can
help you make small postural adjustments that may help diminish back or neck pain.
Love to exercise? That’s great! However, you should always be careful of lifting weights that are too heavy. If you made it a goal to
exercise more in 2022, start by lifting lighter weights and gradually increasing them as you get stronger.
Did you know the average person spends nearly 230,000 hours on their mattress over the course of a lifetime? That’s why making sure yours is
supporting your spine is so important! Mattresses may require flipping or rotating every couple of months, and sometimes, purchasing a new
one if it’s been several years.
