Proper Body Mechanics for a Healthy Spine

The shape of your spine should look like a thin 'S' shape, starting from your head and going down to your butt. When people exercise/work, this 'S' shape should truly be staying the same and not turning into a 'C' shape. A good tip to remember when exercising or working is to remember that your lower back should never be rounded. Always keep an arch so that you will avoid stressing any of the discs in your spine, ensuring that your spine will function properly and allow you to not have any low-back pain.
