Spring cleaning and back pain

I know everyone’s anxious for spring and is ready to get their spring cleaning and activities on, but you have to be careful not to hurt your back. Here are some tips for your back so you can avoid pain and have a good spring:

  • Do one thing at a time: Try not to get wrapped up in doing everything at once. This can lead to stress and cause back pain. 
  • Be careful when lifting things: When lifting something, use your legs to support the weight of the object and keep your knees bent and your back straight. 
  • Take a break: It’s good for you to move around and do things to get your spine exercised, but it’s also good to allow your spine to rest after doing a lot.
