Body Mechanics

Body Mechanics

Body Mechanics is a term used to describe the way we move as we go about our daily lives. How we hold our bodies when we sit, stand, lift, carry, bend and sleep impacts the stress we add to our joints. Poor body mechanics are often associated with lower back and neck pain. Take care of your neck, back and weight bearing joints!
