Guard Your Spine …

Guard Your Spine …

How safe is your spine? Spine health is absolutely crucial to your overall health because it directly connects to
the brain and carries signals from the brain to other parts of your body.
Here’s what you can and should do to take care of your backbone.
- Maintaining a proper posture is very important. Make sure to
keep your shoulders, neck and back as straight as possible and try
keeping your head high.
- If you have to lift something, bend your knees and squat if possible
but don’t bend down directly. This procedure prevents back pain
and strain.
- Stretch your back as much as possible.
- Get some proper exercise. Try doing some muscle building
exercises as more muscles help keep the spine in place.
- Always sleep on your back or side. Don’t sleep on your stomach.
And use only one pillow, never more than that.
- Get a proper nutritious diet. Make sure to get plenty of Omega-3, Calcium, Vitamin D and Proteins. more

1. Add few Yogic exercises mainly backward bend. If no problem forward bend and twist may also be done. 2. Adequate intake of Calcium and sun-rays should be taken/maintained. 3. Bath in hot water tub for small time followed by bath in normal or slightly cold water tub for few rotations will also keep your spine and other parts healthy. Gypsum salt may be added in water. 4. Steam bath is also helpful. 5. A minimum 40 minute walk/brisk walk per day will also keep your spine supple 7 healthy. 6. Keep monitor of your desktop or laptop computers at your eye level to keep the spine straight. 9. Do not read while lying on your bed. 10.

Thank you Raja sahib for the excellent tips which are the backbone of good backbone more  
I have tried this exercise on myself and found it to be of benefit. Lye down on the back on a hard surface without a pillow, and simply tighten the back muscles with some firmness for a few seconds. Release slowly and repeat the exercise increasing the repetitions to as many times as one can without feeling uncomfortable. Over a few months the muscles around the spinal column will gain strength and will be useful. more
