Christmas is such an exciting time of the year! There’s not too many days left to get everything ready for the big day! If you are the one cooking the Christmas lunch this year then you have more than most on your plate (excuse the pun!).
With everything that has to get done in the lead up to the day and on the day itself and let’s admit it – it can be a stressful time, it is easy to forget about your posture. Our chiropractors at Hounslow Family Chiropractic Clinic can’t stress enough how important maintaining a good posture is for the your back. Also, stress creates tension in your back, neck and shoulders which when combined with poor posture can put your back at risk.
Getting the Christmas Lunch on the table involves a lot of lifting, carrying, bending and standing for long periods. All of these done with a poor posture can put your back at risk and that’s the last thing our chiropractors want for you this Christmas!
We have a Lifting and Carrying advice video on our website – so please take 3 minutes to watch this video. Don’t be put off by the fact that the person is lifting flagstones – the principles apply whether your lifting flagstones or the turkey!
Our team at Hounslow Family Chiropractic Clinic wish you a back pain free Christmas.
