Pro Tips to Keep Your Spinal Discs Healthy

Home » Blog » Pro Tips to Keep Your Spinal Discs Healthy

Not everyone spends their entire week preparing to “play on Sunday.”
Our “big game” for the week is more likely to take place in a conference room or on a Zoom call
than in a stadium.
Yes, most of us are probably not going to start our professional lives playing in the NFL – or the
NBA, NHL, MLB, Premier League, Champions League, etc. (though you never know!).
Instead of lifting weights and working with the coach on a new play, your weekdays may be
spent sitting at a desk performing mental jumping jacks for hours at a time.
And we can all agree that whether we’re working out or just working, it’s no fun doing it in pain!
Now, you may be wondering why we’re comparing professional athletes to “office”
professionals.

Get this.

Research has shown that all the hours we spend sitting at our desks can place more stress on
our spines than working out all day long!

Why it Matters:

So, it may be a bit too late to change careers and try out for a professional sports team.
But there are a few things you can do to stay healthy and productive while you work that
professional athletes also do, and you can start right now!
Get active with daily exercise.
Practice daily light stretching.
Receive routine chiropractic care.
Together, each of these can help keep your spinal discs healthy and strong and take the stress
off your spine.
Chiropractic adjustments can help bring valuable nutrients to those important spinal structures.
This, in turn, helps better facilitate the body’s healing processes, including flushing out any
inflammatory substances that can cause pain.
What’s more, researchers from SPINE found that periodic chiropractic care may be able to
detect, evaluate, and prevent future episodes of work related neck and back pain.
To recap, here’s what you want to know about sitting and chiropractic care:
● Sitting is one of the most stressful positions for your spine.
● You can keep your spine healthy with a combination of daily exercise, daily light
stretching, and routine chiropractic care.
● Periodic chiropractic visits can also help evaluate, detect, and treat an emerging
problem, thus preventing future episodes of low back pain.

Next Steps:

We all dream of having those moments at work that are as thrilling and rewarding as catching
the game-winning touchdown.
For you, performing at your peak might mean nailing that presentation at your next team
meeting and then being able to celebrate with an activity you love.
Don’t let pain slow you down and keep you on the sidelines!
That’s where we come in.

beyond.
