April 17, 2018

Dr. Butwell looks to inspire Georgetown chiropractic care patients to develop a healthy spine. A healthy spine is the foundation of a healthy body and key to preventing Georgetown back pain which is so widespread! Dr. Butwell shares some healthy spine tips from the American Chiropractic Association (1,2,3,4). We can all discover something from their healthy spine tips! Georgetown chiropractic patients and their Georgetown chiropractor at Dr. Butwell act together to ensure as healthy a spine as viable.


Fostering a healthy spine implies being mindful of daily activities. When texting (and Dr. Butwell knows our Georgetown chiropractic clients and their families do a lot of this!), Dr. Butwell urges you to follow the text with your eyes and/or raise your cellphone to eye level so you do not hunch your neck.

Careful while texting to not bend your neck too much!

When lifting boxes, use your legs to shield your back muscles from injury. 

Dr. Butwell advises lifting with your legs.

When sitting, keep your knees even with your hips, and sit as upright as possible to avoid slouching.

Georgetown chiropractic patients know to sit up straight!
When sleeping, go to sleep on your back with a pillow under the knees to decrease the pressure on your spine.

Dr. Butwell recommends putting a pillow under your knees when sleeping on your back.

When standing, keep your head straight with your ears over your shoulders to maintain a straight, vertical spine.

Dr. Butwell recommends standing up straight.
