Making a Plan
Establish your future plan.
It all leads up to this - making a plan for your future spine health. Now that you have completed Back Care Boot Camp you should have the tools to effectively manage back pain and work to ensure good habits for life long spine health. But the road is just beginning. The older we get the longer it takes to get back in shape - and once you get in shape it takes work to stay in shape.
DON'T STOP NOW!
The 4 weeks you spend doing learning the Back Care Boot Camp program just teaches you WHAT you need to work on to take control of your back pain and achieve optimum spine health. By making a plan you are developing a strategy to continue on the road to reducing or eliminating back pain.
When you've made your plan, go over it with your health care provider to make sure that the things you've decided to do will promote good spine health and not aggravate your condition. Be sure to place your plan in a location where you can see it often and review it.
