Happy National Spine Health Awareness Month!
Happy National Spine Health Awareness Month! This month serves to show just how important spinal health is. Your spine has a vital effect on your body’s mobility. The spine controls all of the vital functions of the body. “Some 16 million adults — 8 percent of all adults — experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result are limited in certain everyday activities” (Chronic Back Pain, 2019).
There are many ways to maintain a healthy spine. Your can treat your spine better by:
- Stretching and strengthen your back
- Having good posture
- Maintaining a healthy body weight for yourself
- Staying hydrated
- Contacting specialist Dr. Ricart
Don’t create limitations for yourself, make sure that you are maintaining a healthy spine!
