Washing The Dishes With Back Pain – By Dr. Jared Barrieau, Chiropractor
For those that suffer from low back pain something as simple as washing dishes can aggravate their low back pain.
Here is a technique that can help make washing dishes more comfortable:
1. Get as close to the sink as possible. Make sure you are not standing in a forward stooped position.
2. Wear an apron to prevent getting your clothes wet while standing close to the counter.
3. Stand on cushioned mat- this encourages you to shift your weight as you stand.
4. Take breaks, if you have a lot of dishes break up the work into manageable work intervals.
