  • It is very important to exercise regularly.  Little and often is better than sudden bursts of activity.  Regular use of light weights as well as cardio exercise 3-4 times per week is ideal.  Strong core muscles (abdominal muscles) help to stabilise the back
  • Watch your posture.  Try not to slump, shoulders should be down and relaxed.
  • Be aware of your neck position. Your chin should be held back rather than forward.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Try not to twist and bend at the same time.
  • Don’t smoke.  Smoking has been shown to reduce the blood supply to the discs between the vertebrae, which may lead to disc degeneration and pain.
  • Never ignore pain, seek advice from your chiropractor as early intervention can aid a speedy recovery.
