The spine is a complex system of bones, muscles, and nerves that supports the body and enables movement. It is also home to the nervous system, which carries signals from the brain to the rest of the body. Keeping your spine healthy and aligned is essential for your physical and mental wellbeing.

At MOTUS, we have developed a few simple tips that can help you keep your spine healthy and aligned:

1. Avoid sitting for long periods

Prolonged sitting can cause the spine to become misaligned, leading to pain and stiffness. It is important to take breaks from sitting and move around to help keep the spine healthy and aligned.

2. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise helps improve posture and strengthens the muscles that support the spine. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per day to help keep your spine healthy and aligned.

3. Stretch your muscles

Stretching helps to improve flexibility, reduce tension, and improve posture. Incorporate simple stretches into your daily routine to help keep your spine healthy and aligned.

4. Improve your posture

Poor posture can cause the spine to become misaligned, leading to pain and discomfort. Make sure to keep your head and shoulders straight and your back in a natural position.

5. Use proper lifting techniques

Lifting heavy objects incorrectly can cause the spine to become misaligned. When lifting, keep your back straight, bend your knees, and keep the object close to your body.

6. Sleep on a quality mattress

A quality mattress can help keep your spine healthy and aligned while you sleep. Look for a mattress that is supportive and comfortable to help keep your spine healthy and aligned.

7. See your chiropractor

Seeing a chiropractor regularly can help keep your spine healthy and aligned. A chiropractor can identify areas of misalignment and provide treatment to help reduce pain and improve spinal health.
