4 Tips to Straighten Your Back

Having back problems is awful, but keep reading and learn a few tips to straighten your back. An aching back or neck can jeopardize your performance throughout the day, and in most cases, it's all because of a bad posture. Knowing how to stand, how to sit and how to lay is essential if you want to keep those aches away.

Follow these simple tips and see how you will start to feel much better in no time.

1. Avoid Extremely Soft Mattresses

It doesn't matter if you suffer from back pain or not, chiropractors recommend using firmer mattresses. Laying down on a soft and saggy surface will make your spine bend in an unnatural and harmful way. On the other hand, if you lay over a firm surface, your spine will retain its natural form. The use of adequate pillows is also very important. Huge ones may feel very comfortable and cozy, but you should never sleep with your head over something that keeps it misaligned with your spine. Smaller pillows are usually recommended for those you tend to sleep on their back. However, if you are a side sleeper, you should get a pillow with sufficient stuffing to make sure that your head and neck remain straight (not too high and not too low).

2. Learn How to Sit Properly

This is something everyone should know, but most of us go on living our lives clueless of what is the best way to sit on a chair. Step 1: avoid tall chairs that won't let your knees stay at the same height as your hips (or a bit higher!). Step 2: keep your feet flat on the floor. Step 3: if you have to be seated many hours a day, you should get a chair with enough lumbar support or carry with you a cushion to place between you and the chair. That way, your spine will keep its form. Step 4: have a post-it somewhere visible in your workspace to remind yourself of these simple steps. Eventually, it will become a habit and you won't need a reminder anymore. 

3. Get A Back Posture Corrector

4. Strengthen Your Abs

One of the quickest ways to achieve a good posture is by exercising your abs. Strong muscles will give natural support to your spine and before you know it, you will begin to stand straighter and feel much better. Adjusting the way you stand and sit will also help you breath better and digest your food more efficiently.
