The holiday season is in full swing and you are looking forward to having your family over for holiday dinners and visits.  As you clean your house there are a few tips to remember to help prevent back and neck pain.

1.  Avoid reaching and lifting or exerting.  Like scrubbing a tub, that reach and force puts 100’s of pounds of pressure on your spine.

2.  When standing on a ladder don’t lock your knees, keep them flexed and this will eliminate some of the strain on your low back.

3.  Squat down onto one knee to pick up children, rather than bending at the waist.

If you do hurt yourself Dr. Myers is here to help.  Chiropractic care can alleviate the pain from stress and over working.
