|How to Your Back!
Slouch. Whether standing or sitting, slouching puts terrible stress on your neck and back.
Read in bed. Stesses your neck and upper back.
Sleep on your stomach. Causes neck problems.
Sit on a wallet or cell phone in your back pocket. This creates imbalance/misalignment of your pelvis.
Be inactive for more than a day or two. Structural weakness sets in almost immediately.
Bend, twist and lift. This is one of the most dangerous maneuvers known to man.
Bend at the waist to pick stuff up. Bending forward unlocks the vertebrae inviting injury.
Sit for hours without a get up and stretch break.
Fall asleep on the couch. Get up and go to bed.
