Everyday Activities That Tax Your Spine

Every physical activity involves your spine.

Your posture is compromised all day long, as the spine takes the burden of the body's twists, turns and bearing of weight.

If you are new parent coping with the physical stress of handling a baby, consider the position of the spine during these regular activities:

  • Lifting an infant out of a crib
  • Holding an infant on one hip
  • Lifting the stroller or bassinet

As an adult with a normal daily physical routine, consider spinal positioning during these routine tasks:

  • Shaving
  • Putting on socks
  • Reaching into the backseat
  • Helping a friend move
  • Spreading mulch in the yard

All of the above activities can lead to the misalignment of the spine, which we know causes chain reaction injuries in other parts of the body.

Optimal function of many joints such as hips, knees, shoulders can be compromised if the back joints are misaligned and overtaxed.
