Bellevue Pain Clinic in Bellevue WA is dedicated to relieving your back pain and helping you avoid any future back complications. To that end, we’ve put together some tips to help keep your back in good shape.

  • Take Your Vitamins. Calcium and magnesium are important to take. Calcium, of course, is for good bone strength and magnesium aids in calcium absorption.
  • Keep Up Your Core Strength. It may seem that core strength is a trend, but it’s not, it is at the core (pun intended) of your strength. Simple things like pulling in your abdominal muscles (aka sucking in your gut) and sitting up straight can be little things that help keep your core in the correct position and so can have a great effect on your back’s health.

 

  • Get a New Mattress. The average life of a mattress is nine to ten years so if your mattress is older than that, it’s time to invest in a new one. You want one that isn’t too hard or too soft. A mattress that is too hard won’t allow the curves of your spine to get comfortable and one that is too soft won’t give you enough support.
