After months of producing and DJing, it started really taking a tole on my body. It was really hard to get up and get going in the morning. I was having trouble doing all the normal things, like producing and DJing.
I decided to go to my doctors office to see what the heck was going on with me.
Luckily it wasn’t anything crazy or anything. My doctor told me because of late nights DJing, and long days sitting and producing. My back was out of whack, and I needed a better chair to fix it. Apparently after all these months, DJing has actually done a number on my back. My doctor told me there are some things I can do to get it fixed.
He recommended that I check out a local chiropractor so I can get adjusted. It just so happens that I have a good friend that is a chiropractor, so I called him up to schedule an appointment. Now I go regularly.
He said I should start doing some yoga exercises as well, to loosen up the muscles in my back. I have tried yoga in the past and it was super hard for me to get into each position. Now I can get into every position a lot better.
The last thing my doctor mentioned in doing, was changing the chair in my studio. He said that most chairs have horrible ergonomics and are not meant for comfort. He recommended that I go and purchase an ergonomic office chair.
So I did some research online and found an awesome website that sells ergonomic office chairs. There are so many good brands like Herman Miller, and Humanscale that it was hard to pick. After reading the reviews I eventually ended up going with the Aeron. It had great reviews and looked really cool.
After doing all these things, I went back to my doctor and he told me my back looked a lot better. I was a lot more mobile, and was able to get back into my regular routine.
In the studio I dont feel as tense anymore and I can sit for longer periods of time. Its awesome!
