     After a long day, the homemaker may be full of aches and pains.  To take some of the strain out of housework, try to observe the following:

  •   When washing dishes or ironing, stand with one leg higher than the other to prevent back strain.  Use a small box or solid stepstool.
  •   If moving something, ask for help!  If you must do it alone, never lift something you can slide along the floor more easily.  Bend from the knees, keeping your back straight.  Don’t twist or jerk your body while lifting or bending and move as close to your center of gravity as possible.
  •  Do each chore slowly, allowing our body time to adjust and stretch.

     When aches and pains strike, a Doctor of Chiropractic may be able to offer relief with a spinal adjustment.  Don’t hesitate to call for assistance!
