Poses for the back

Healthy postures to take care of the back, useful to avoid annoying pain and tension in this area of ​​the body, so painful and neglected on many occasions.

To prevent back pain, it is essential to maintain good posture both when we sit and when we are in the car, or even when we are going to pick up or hold things from the ground.

And there is no doubt that maintaining good posture is vital to avoid back pain. In this way we do not suffer annoying pain and, above all, we do not overload the back more than necessary, which can later cause us many problems over the years, especially as we get older.

When it comes to taking care of your back, it is essential to know what postures may or may not be beneficial, especially if from time to time we tend to suffer from problems or tensions in the neck, back or cervical (specifically).

Healthy postures for the back

  • If you usually work sitting down, especially daily, try not to always stay in that position.  Get up a little and walk. It will help your neck muscles rest.
  • When you are going to sit on a chair, place your back straight on the backrest, while keeping your feet firmly on the ground.
  • When lifting objects from the ground, bend down by bending your knees, keeping your back straight. You want to lift the weight by carrying the load as close to your body as possible.
  • When you go in the car, the seat must have good lumbar support, which must be adjustable according to the needs of each person.
  • When you talk on the phone, hold it with your hands, and never place it between your shoulder and your head.
  • Always use a suitable bed, which has a firm mattress and maintains a straight neck position.

All these postures are useful to take care of our back, since they ensure us a correct position, which in turn helps to avoid possible malformations or ailments that can become serious after a few years, especially when we get older and get older.

In this case, ask yourself the following question: how are you sitting right now? Perhaps your back is not properly attached to the chair, or even the chair is not adequate to maintain a correct position.

Do not forget that it is not only essential to maintain a proper posture, but also to have a correct chair, especially if you tend to spend a lot of time working, studying or sitting in front of the computer screen.
