Top Tips to Reduce Back Pain
By Sara Butler
At the end of the day does your back ache? If so, that’s a sign from your body that something simply isn’t right. Your pain may be intermittent or it could be consistent, but one thing to understand is that relying on medication to find relief won’t solve the underlying problem. To get down to the root problem and treat it is what will truly take your pain away -- and that’s something the chiropractors at The Joint are happy to help you out with. Here are some tips to help you take the ache away!
Have Proper Sleep Support
When you’re asleep at night, that’s your spine’s opportunity to rejuvenate and relax. If you spend the entire night tossing and turning in order to find a comfortable, supported sleep position, then your body won’t have the opportunity to relax and rest as it should. Talk to your chiropractor at The Joint about ways you can support your body better while sleeping, including sleep positions.
Look at Your Shoes
Your feet are the foundation on which your entire body relies for support. If you fail to provide proper support for your body because of poor shoe choices, then you may pay the price with back pain. Make sure you wear shoes that fit well, offer support to your arches, and provide enough cushion to absorb shock as you go throughout your day. If you’re wearing flip-flops, flats, or high heels, then talk to your chiropractor about why these looks may be fashionable but damaging to the health of your spine.
Check Your Ergonomics
If you sit at a desk and work for a majority of your day, it may be why you’re suffering from back pain. If you don’t have your chair, computer monitor, and desk ergonomically optimized to support proper posture, then you may be damaging the health of your spine. Talk to the chiropractors at The Joint to help you figure out how your desk should be set up or discuss having an ergonomic evaluation done through your employer if that’s a service offered.
One of the best ways to avoid back pain is to work with the chiropractors at The Joint to address possible issues with your spine before they become a problem that causes pain. The chiropractors can evaluate your spine to identify any joint restrictions or dysfunctions that may be present and take care of them.
