Sitting, moving, sleeping - you can't do any of it easily without the support of your back. But are you supporting your back in return?
All too often we take our back for granted - until it lets us down, or we have given it all it can take.
A healthy back is strong and supple, but it can very quickly lose is strength and flexibility if it's not exercised. It's that old saying about use it or lose it. So what do you do to ensure your back is strong and flexible?
And it's important to get good advice about what to do to make your back strong and supple, because the wrong exercise can do more harm than good.
That's why I've gone to the NHS for information. These simple exercises can be done in five minutes and don't need any equipment or special conditions. So why not give them a try.
But beware, if you have existing back problems, take advice from a professional before trying any of these exercises.
And if you want to rest your back, try one of these techniques:
Rest like this for just a few minutes every day and feel the difference in your energy levels.
Look after your back and you will feel younger and healthier and more relaxed.
And if you'd like some support to bring your body back into a healthy balance you might find Reflexology useful. For more information or to book, call Doris on 07724 197627.
