Want to Improve Your Neck Function?

Having a good night’s sleep is crucial to good health. The pillow you use should support your neck in as neutral a position as possible whether you’re on your side or your back. Modern contoured pillows are ideal as they will support you in either position. You need one which keeps your neck supported when you’re comfortable, so a bit of measurement, and trial and error is usually the way forward!

How Much Sun Is Too Much?

When it comes to sun exposure, it's important to take a moderate approach. Too much can damage our skin (and different skin colours will alter how much sun-time is too much), and too little may leave us deficient in vitamin D. As the summer's coming up, we must be sensible with our sun-loving!

Want to Know the Link Between Smoking and Back Pain?

While it may not seem immediately apparent, there is a link becoming more and more likely between being a smoker and suffering from chronic back pain. This is probably due to the reduction of the integrity of the tissues and the body’s ability to repair itself. We all know that it’s not a good idea to smoke, but this specific set of findings may just help to boost the desire to quit once and for all! Source

Want to Know the Best Way to Lift?

Try to avoid having an assymmetrical load, or one that's too heavy. Try splitting the load or wearing a backpack. It'll reduce the strain on your spine! Do your best to avoid bending foward and simultaneously twisting- it's a poor combination for your spine, especially if you then lift a load.

Want a Great Way to Improve Your Balance?


Our balance is key to keeping us upright, doing the things we love. As we age, our sense of balance can worsen unless we challenge it. Good and simple ways to do this include consistent, small exercises like stnading on one leg while you brush your teeth, and 'writing' the alphabet in the air with your foot while you sit (both lower- and upper-case). These simple things will keep your ankles working as well as possible, as you're training them to improve constantly throughout your lifetime.

How Important is Your Mattress?

When choosing a new mattress, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The first is that a good quality foam, or a denser population of springs are crucial. The main idea is that every area of your body should have its own support- some parts sink lower than others and should all be held properly.

Want to Know How to Sit Properly?

It’s very important to sit comfortably, whether at work or at home or anywhere you are sedentary for long periods. If your feet don’t touch the floor, then the weight of your legs will pull the top of your pelvis forward (using the quad muscle group) which will increase and stress the lumbar curve. Always use a foot-rest or even just a stack of books to make sure that there’s no forward pulling.
