These simple movements or daily routines can end up hurting you if you’re not careful. Make sure to do these simple activities the right way as outlined below:
Posture. Posture. Posture. Make sure that you keep your chin up and don’t slouch. If you know that you are going to be standing for a long period of time, make sure that you wear comfortable shoes.
Make sure that you are getting up every 20 minutes to stretch. The type of chair you have is extremely important. It should fit you correctly so that your back touches the chair and your feet are on the floor with knees at a 90 degree angle. Try to avoid looking down at your computer screen. It should be at eye level.
Make sure you have a chair that is supportive. When you are forced to sit for a long period of time, for instance at a desk job, make sure to get up and stretch every 20 minutes. Sit with your back against the chair, feet firmly on the floor. Do not cross your legs.
Lifting objects is one of the most common ways to injure yourself. Even if it is a light object, twisting or pulling in the wrong direction when you’re not stretched out can have a damaging effect on muscles and the spine. You always want to bend at the knees and avoid lifting anything you know is too heavy.
If you know that you are going to be working or playing for a while, make sure that you are adequately stretched out and warmed up. Even if it’s something light like gardening or just pushing your child on a bike, it’s easy to pull something if you’re not warmed up.
If you’re forced to use the telephone for a long period of time, a speaker or a headset is a must. By all means try to avoid cradling the phone between your neck and your shoulder as this could cause you to damage the muscles or vertebrae in that area.
Straining your neck or back while you’re sleeping is a very common occurrence. We often fall asleep in strange positions where we are not supported properly or our necks are at an odd angle. Make sure that if you are going to nap or watch tv in bed, that you are in a supportive position.

The entire staff is awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Hoang and Dr. Trainor are both excellent. They are thorough and make sure that you understand your treatments and the reasons for them.
I travel from Covington to Metairie for my visits, that should speak for itself! But this practice along with all of its employees are very caring, personable and professional. Dr. Kim Trainor is amazing, understanding and easy to get along with.
Love everyone at this place! Everyone is down to earth, understanding, and non-stop keeping up with everyone. As a business owner I have the utmost respect for the staff and knowledge.
The staff is always courteous and very friendly. They take their time to learn their patients first names for a more personal experience. I have never felt more at ease while going for an adjustment. I recommend them to all my family and friends.
In just a weeks time they have made exceptional progress with my loss of motion in my neck and shoulder. They are very effecient and thourally understand my issues. The team of chiropractors have quickly created an action plan for my recovery. I can’t recommend them enough, the entire team is pleasant and I’m always feeling better after every treatment. Thank you!
My daughter sees Dr Hoang and Dr Trainor. Along with their staff, they provide superior care. They are clearly knowledgeable and experienced. I would not hesitate referring my family, my friends or my own patients to them.
Love Hoang Chiropractor Care. Both Dr. Hoang and Dr.Trainor are excellent doctors. They are extremely knowledgeable, great listeners, and focused on getting you the right treatment for your needs. The staff is amazing and very nice. Very accommodating with appointment times.
The staff here are great! They are very friendly. When I started my therapy here my pain was over 10. After a few months with them I felt much better and am almost pain free. They were always so welcoming and made me feel like family. Highly recommend.
I love Dr. Trainor and all of her staff. They have the most up to date technology, from laser therapy, the matrix machine, spinal decompression beds, ultrasound waves, etc. to make sure you get the best care and relief possible. I had been seeing a chiropractor with an older approach for years and it did provide relief for a while but the pain always came back since we weren’t fixing the underlying problem (6 ruptured discs).
