Tips to Prevent Back Injuries

Tip 1: Use Correct Lifting Techniques

Bend your knees and use the muscles of your legs not the muscles of your back and remember to always maintain a neutral spine.





Tip 2: Avoid Performing Repetitive Activities

When performing repetitive activities or diving for long periods of time take a break and stretch every few hours.





Tip 3: Exercise On a Regular Basis

Maintain a healthy weight and incorporate exercises to increase your core and back strength, try our pilates classes or a personal training session to kick start you fitness.




Tip 4: Reduce Stress

Stress causes you to tense your muscles and constant tension of this kind can cause back pain, try a regular Massage and Chiropractic treatment. Remember prevention is better then the cure.

Be sure to work at an ergonomically correct workstation, both at the office and at home and take regular breaks with stretching and exercises.
