Suggestions to follow during spinal correction

1. Avoid rubbing, probing, or "poking" in the areas your doctor adjusts.

2. Avoid sudden twists or turns of movement beyond normal limits of motion, especially of the neck.

3. Avoid extreme bending of your spine in any direction; avoid stretching; reaching, or other overhead work. Be particularly careful when brushing or shampooing your hair.

4. Avoid bending or stooping sharply to pick up objects; rather, bend your knees to minimize the strain on your lower back.

5. When lifting keep your back straight; bend your knees and let your legs bear the strain. Hold the object lifted close to your body as possible.

6. When bathing, sit rather than recline in the tub. Lying back against the tub may cause a vertebra to slip out of its normal position. If you are tired and wish to relax, it's better to lie in bed.

7. Participate in simple exercises to strengthen your body, but avoid jarring activities which place stress on your neck and spine.

8. Watch your posture at all times, stand tall, sleep tall, and think tall.
