OrthoIllinois Chiropractic Shares the American Chiropractic Associations Tips for a Healthy Spine

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic encourages McHenry chiropractic care patients to nurture a healthy spine. A healthy spine is the basis of a healthy body and key to preventing McHenry back pain which is so widespread! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic welcomes these healthy spine tips from the American Chiropractic Association (1,2,3,4). We can all learn something from their healthy spine tips! McHenry chiropractic patients and their McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic strive for as healthy a spine as viable.


Fostering a healthy spine entails being mindful of activities of daily living. When texting (and OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows our McHenry chiropractic clients and their families do a lot of this!), OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recommends that you follow the text with your eyes and/or raise your cellphone to eye level so you do not hunch your neck.

Careful while texting to not bend your neck too much!

When lifting boxes, use your legs in order to protect your back muscles from injury. 

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic advises lifting with your legs.

When sitting, keep your knees level with your hips, and sit as straight as possible to prevent slouching.

McHenry chiropractic patients know to sit up straight!
When sleeping, go to sleep on your back with a pillow under the knees to lessen the pressure on your spine.

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recommends putting a pillow under your knees when sleeping on your back.

When standing, keep your head straight with your ears over your shoulders to keep a straight, vertical spine.

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recommends standing up straight.
