Small ways to protect your waist
With the increase of age, more and more old people endure the pain of waist and leg pain.
There are three common symptoms in the elderly: lumbar pain caused by lumbar spine shrinkage and muscle strain; pain after sedentary or up and down stairs caused by tension in the patellofemoral joint.
For the above, in addition to actively receiving distance rehabilitation training, we must also protect and prevent it in our daily lives.
Some elderly people always mention when they see a doctor that when they take a bus, they can’t stand the traffic jams.
If it happens that there is no seat, the waist is particularly strong.
When I got out of the car, I couldn’t walk.
In this case, the elderly should try to sit as far as the front of the car to prevent damage to the lumbar spine caused by the car’s rear upside down.
If you find a seat, you should try to adopt a posture that is oriented to the direction of the car. Hold your hands tightly on the back of the chair, such as the elbows, knees slightly bent, waist slightly bent, legs as far as possible, slightly bowed.It can effectively protect the lumbar spine and knee joints when the vehicle is in emergency braking or bumping.
Many elderly people often return large bags of vegetables from the morning market early in the morning.
Sometimes you have to carry it if you can’t get it.
In fact, it is best for the elderly to buy only one or two days of vegetables, and the weight should not exceed ten pounds.
Improves the burden on the lumbar spine.
You can make a large cloth bag and put it on your chest or back after putting in vegetables. Try not to carry it with both hands.
When there is a large amount of food, you can bring a trolley and bend the cart slightly forward.
In addition, although patients with lumbar spinal stenosis have difficulty walking, they do not affect cycling, so using a pedal tricycle can also bring more convenience.
Elderly people who contract and pain after going up and down stairs or sitting for a long time should first try to reduce the number of times of going up and down stairs.
But when you have to go downstairs, you must master certain skills.
When going upstairs, you can use the painless leg to step to a higher level. The painful leg will then follow up. Always avoid the painful leg first. When going downstairs, you should go down first.
Such as pain in the legs and high blood pressure, down the stairs of the side limbs can be appropriate for pain relief.
After returning home, when you need to sit more, try to straighten your legs or take turns to straighten your legs.
