TIPS TO KEEP YOUR SPINE HEALTHY
2. Lose that weight!
The more you weigh, the greater the stress on your spine. If you are overweight, losing even 10% to 15% of your body weight can help keep your spine healthy.
Losing weight will also make you feel better and more likely to maintain a healthier lifestyle. If you are severely overweight, talk to your doctor about a weight loss program that will allow you to safety lose weight.
