‘Caring’ for someone covers lots of different things, like helping with their washing, dressing or eating, taking them to regular appointments or keeping them company when they feel lonely or anxious.

Caring for your back

Most of us will suffer back pain at some stage of our lives. But as a carer, you’re even more likely to be affected.
Lifting the person you care for and helping them dress or move around can all place a strain on your back. However, knowing how to protect your back can help to keep it in good shape.

Improve your Posture
Poor posture can put you at increased risk of back problems by putting extra strain on your back. This can affect your muscles, ligaments, tendons and vertebrae, and in the long term, can cause painful problems such as muscle, joint and disc damage, and constricted vessels and nerves.
Just being aware of how you are sitting and standing can greatly improve your posture. You should stand upright with your head facing forward and your back straight. And when sitting, make sure you are upright, with your knees and hips level and your feet flat on the floor or on a footstool. Don’t hunch your shoulders or slump in your chair. When sitting down for long periods of time, be sure to keep your back well supported using the back of your chair.

Keep Mindfully active
Swimming, yoga, pilates, walking, running and cycling can all help to strengthen your back. If you don’t have time to do a regular sport, simple changes to your daily activities can really make a difference – walking instead of using the car for short journeys, cycling to the shops, taking the stairs instead of the lift or getting off the bus a stop earlier than you usually do.

Start slowly and build up
If it’s been a long time since you’ve exercised, or if you’re thinking about increasing the amount of exercise you do, discuss it with your GP first, especially if you have any health problems.
If you already have back problems it doesn’t need to stop you from being active altogether. Exercises which focus on flexibility, such as yoga or tai-chi might be beneficial – but check with your GP first.
These tips may also help reduce your discomfort:
• If you’re overweight, try to lose some weight
• Try not to make sudden movements
• Wear flat shoes, with cushioned soles, as this can reduce the stress on your back. Trainers are good
