A healthy spine gives good support to the rest of your body. It can make all the difference in the world during stressful times. Neurosurgeon John Steck of Culicchia Neurological in New Orleans offers some tips for a healthy spine.
“Don’t smoke. Smoking is really bad for the joints, discs and spine and accelerates disc degeneration. Stay thin. Stay fit. Stay active. Keep your body strong. That’s really the best thing you can do to protect your spine.”
Dr. Steck is available via telemedicine to consult on spine conditions that might eventually need surgery. Call us for an appointment.
