Back Pain Is Dreadful: Here Are 3 Tips to Help

By Virginia Laird

If you have ever experienced back pain, you understand exactly how uncomfortable and life altering it can be. There are many who struggle with back pain so extreme that it interrupts regular life. Chiropractors encourage patients to apply a few tips to their daily routine to help manage and prevent such pain. These tips include:

  • Choose comfy shoes
  • Avoid sitting too long
  • Check in with your chiropractor

Choose Comfy Shoes

The shoes you choose can significantly affect the amount of pain you feel throughout your back. Chiropractors say that shoes that offer little comfort and support are more likely to bring about pain. For this reason, chiropractors say that you should make sure you are always wearing shoes that are comfortable while offering the support your back needs. This is not likely to be found in an extremely high heel. Instead, chiropractors say that you should avoid heels that are taller than two inches, as these can promote severe pain. Before you head out the door today, check your shoes to see if they give you the support you need to make it through the day sans back pain. 

Avoid Sitting Too Long

While it can be wise to get off of your feet to allow your back time to rest, there is such a thing as sitting for too long as well. Chiropractors say that living the couch potato life can lead to back pain too. Being sedentary for far too long can cause tension to build in the body, which can lead to an increase in back pain. Rather than sitting all day catching up on your favorite shows, make sure you are getting up and about too. Find time to walk, do some laundry, clean the house, or simply step outside to enjoy a little fresh air before settling back down for your next television fix. 

Check in With Your Chiropractor

For the millions who struggle with putting back pain behind them, there is plenty of research to suggest that routine chiropractic care can be beneficial. Chiropractors gear a great deal of their attention toward the health of your spine. Using simple adjustments to the vertebrae, chiropractors are able to help the body release tension and restore function to the back.
