Spine care and being aware of the way we move through our days, the way we lift and use our bodies, can go a long way in preventing damage to the major bundle of nerves, bones, and structures that make up our spine. Bending and stretching can put a strain on your spine. Move things around in your home that you use frequently in easy to reach places. This will help minimize bending and stretching.
