Active Daily Living Advice – (Stop Self-Adjusting)

An irritated or restricted joint may produce an ongoing urge to “pop it” yourself.

Although self-adjusting may produce temporary relief, you should avoid the temptation for several reasons. Self-application of a crude generalized force to an entire region of the spine rarely frees the restricted culprit, but rather further loosens an already mobile segment.

Over time, repeated self-mobilization could lead to new problems from creating excessive motion.

Consequently, spinal manipulation should be performed only by chiropractors or other highly trained doctors who can recognize when an adjustment is appropriate and when it is not.

Proper Lifting Form

Correct Lifting Technique:

  • Stand with your feet slightly apart, spread wider than the object.
  • Squat by bending at the knees and hips in front of the object to be lifted with your back straight.
  • Grasp the object by holding it as close to the body as possible.
  • Look in front of you.
  • Contract the muscles of the abdomen, then get up by using your legs and by keeping your back straight.
