Proper body mechanics are essential for everyday movements. A Passaic County physical therapist can ensure that regular routines are done safely, protecting your posture and your muscles. Knowing how to do common movements correctly is important in order to avoid the pain and discomfort that accompanies lower back pain resulting from poor posture and poor technique. Whether you are lifting a heavy object or reaching down to pull a dandelion out of the ground make sure that you bend your body in such a way that your muscular system is protected. An experienced Passaic County physical therapist can show you how to bend, lift, and squat in such a way that you can avoid pain and build strength and good posture.
Squats are a common exercise, building a variety of muscles. It is necessary to do a squat correctly to maximize the desired outcome but a squat is also something a person may do throughout the day, whether picking something up or getting a task completed. The question is, do you know how to squat correctly? One thing to keep in mind for proper technique is tilting your hips toward the front, where your body is facing, while keeping your abs engaged as you go down and up. The same goes with bending. Use your legs and protect your lower back by engaging your muscles, sticking your rear out behind you. Contact our physical therapy office in Totowa for exercise and posture techniques to ensure that you are treating your body the way it deserves to be treated.
