It's that time of the year when we look forward to our summer holidays with longer days and hours of sunbathing on white sandy beaches.
Sunbathing can be disastrous for people with back pain. When sunbathing on your back, you should raise the back support slightly up – from the horizontal to 35 degrees. You should also try rolling up two beach towels to place under both knees, so that your knees are slightly bent. This will all reduce the load on your back.
It is estimated that 80% of the population will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.
The good news? There are simple things you can do to prevent back pain and keep a healthy spine and posture. If you are currently suffering with back pain then the following strategies and habits could help you feel better.
Our Chiropractor can help you with fast, effective pain relief through a series of treatments, lifestyle advice and tailor made exercise regime. And we can help keep you pain free.Read More
