Is There a Secret to Avoiding Back Pain?

By Genevieve Cunningham

Back pain happens far more often than we would like. For most people, it's a once in a while occurrence. It happens when we've been too sedentary or when we've worked too hard, but it's not necessarily a daily problem. Others suffer from an insistent and frustrating sort of discomfort. It may be mild, but it's always there. Whatever kind of pain that you suffer, you can take comfort in the fact that you're not alone. Almost everyone experiences pain in the back, and the older you get, the more likely it is. But alone or not, you're likely still interested in avoiding back pain if at all possible. So what gives? Is there a secret to avoiding back pain once and for all? If you want to keep your back healthy and pain-free, take a look at these three little ways to make it happen. 


Proper Form


Anytime that we're using the back, we need to maintain proper form. This includes things like exercise and lifting weights, but it also includes little everyday moments. If you're lifting something in your ordinary life -- maybe a box or a child -- you still have to maintain proper form. The lift is in your legs, not in your lower back. Keeping good form can help prevent overuse and injury, and it can help prevent certain kinds of back pain through the years.


Strength Training


If you want to keep your body healthy and pain-free, you need to keep it strong. The best way to build and maintain strength is by lifting weights regularly. This may begin as light weights and short reps added to your normal workout. As time goes on, you may want to increase the weight and the reps. The key is to keep pushing yourself, but always within reason. Too much weight will only cause injury. Be slow, steady, and intentional, and you'll be able to build strength in your back -- and body as a whole -- to keep yourself healthy and free from ongoing pain. 


Chiropractic Care


Chiropractic care is one of the most effective ways to maintain a healthy back. Chiropractors gently adjust the spine, remove restrictions, reduce pain, and restore function. If this sounds like a lot, it is! But considering the spine is used in almost everything we do, it's massively important to keep it healthy and strong. If you plan on trying chiropractic care, you'll want to make it a habit. One visit might feel good, but regular visits can transform your health -- and it will absolutely be the most effective for pain. If you really want less pain in your life, don't skip the chiropractor and you'll be off to a great start.
