Watching the Winter Olympics? Watch Your Posture Too!

Back pain sends more people to the GP than all other conditions apart from the common lurgy. But you don’t have to do anything too strenuous to injure your back. In fact, you can put yourself at risk of developing acute or chronic back pain just by sitting down watching TV. So if you’re planning on spending a good few hours with your eyes fixed to the Winter Olympics this year, make sure you’re mindful of your posture!

According to our team at Pure Chiropractic in Staines, many people have a tendency to slouch when they’re in front of the television, which is one of the biggest culprits for back pain.

So from now, instead  of just plonking yourself down in any old position to watch TV, spare a thought for your spine. Try and sit on a well supported chair with your back straight. It’s also a good idea to keep drinking plenty of water and move around regularly to keep your muscles supple.

As chiropractors, we know the effects of poor posture all too well and we don’t want you to be the next victim of back pain!

We’ve seen the effects of poor posture and it really is worth taking these tips on board! After all, no one wants to risk developing chronic back pain!

Our team are always here with any advice, so contact us and we’ll be happy to help!
