Preventing Holiday Back Pain
With all the traveling, lifting, cooking, cleaning and wrapping through the holiday season, it's easy to over-do-it.
Proper posture is key to preventing back pain in all you do and it's particularly important when lifting or wrapping presents. It's so easy to not think about...until it's too late. Wrapping presents can often be the straw that breaks your back - so to speak. Follow these tips to stay feeling your best:
1.) Avoid standing or sitting hunched-over
2.) Wrap as you buy - rather than wrapping for hours
3.) Remember to stretch & relax
4.) Take regular breaks
5.) Be proactive - schedule a massage during your most intense holiday weeks as preventative care
