This new season, many of us are striving for work-life balance. In this upcoming new year, we encourage you to consider making spinal balance one of your priorities. The benefits of achieving spinal balance can mean a world of difference when it comes to pain, movement, and preventing tissue deterioration. 

 

Here are the following alternative ways you can balance your spinal health through the use of adaptive devices: 

 

Improve Balance and Posture with a Padded Mat

Every individual can work on maintaining healthy spinal balance and coordination. Whether you alternate between a sitting and standing desk or simply need some improvement on your posture, you may want to consider a padded mat. 

 

The right mat can help you work on your balance, coordination, and fitness levels, all while you continue to do the tasks most important to you. 

 

We recommend this mat from Kybun for general use: 

Kybun mat 6cm – For general daily use: in training, at home, or in the office. https://shop.kybun.us/collections/kybun-mats-kybounder 

 

This mat allows your feet to sink into its soft, spring-like surface, encouraging your body to move in slight movements working your core and helping to build and maintain spinal balance. 

 

 

Prevent Accelerated Wear and Tear Through Padded Shoe Technology

When standing for long periods of time, our joints experience stress and compression. Give your spine added support while alleviating pressure and pain. If you previously suffered a hip or knee injury or are managing chronic knee pain, it is vital to alleviate stressors in that region to prevent further damage. 

 

Upgrading to proper footwear that builds up joint-stabilizing muscles can result in short-term pain alleviation and long-term stability improvements. We have all seen the cooking mats that chefs stand on in the kitchen; now, just imagine wearing one of those on your shoe all day long. Just think how much better your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and especially your spine would feel! 

 

We recommend a variety of footwear from Kybun https://shop.kybun.us/collections/kybun-shoes-kyboot 

 

At Neurology Office, Dr. Kandel and his team thoroughly enjoy the benefits of supportive technology. With these shoes, you will feel like you are walking on air and encouraged to go outside for that additional stroll. 

 

“As I tell my patient, focus on long term stability and balance. When it comes to spinal health and joint pain, pay close attention to how your body feels and moves. And, work to correct these minor discomforts today for major comfort tomorrow.”
