Alleviating Back Pain for Better Health and Sleep

By Donna Stark

There are many different types of back pain, but the most common one is the pain felt in the lower back. Low back pain is something that most of us have experienced at one time or another. The pain can range from annoying to debilitating and has the potential to affect nearly every part of your life. But the one part that can be most detrimental to your overall well-being, is the time you set aside for sleep. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to get rid of the pain so you can get the sleep you need. Take a look.

Chiropractic Care

Establishing routine chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic can help you address many of the issues that cause low back pain, such as muscle strains, arthritis, disc issues, osteoporosis, and sciatica. Chiropractic care eases muscle tension, reduces inflammation, corrects joint dysfunction, and soothes irritated nerves. By getting adjusted regularly, and following the lifestyle tips that your chiropractor suggests, you can look forward to quick relief, long-lasting results, and all-natural healing.

Sleeping Position

Do you find that your back pain feels worse in the morning? Maybe you are sleeping in the wrong position then! The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic recommend sleeping in a position where your back is kept in a neutral position, and for that to happen, you should be sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your side is the next best choice, and stomach sleeping should always be considered last.

Daily Exercise

If you want to improve your low back pain, you should exercise daily and work on increasing the strength of your core muscles. You can ask your chiropractor for suggestions, but generally, low-impact exercises are the way to go here, with swimming, yoga, and walking being the top choices. Swimming is a perfect all-over body workout that will strengthen your core and back muscles, yoga will help to improve flexibility and range of motion, and walking will incorporate more functional movement into your days.

Proper Lifting

Whether you are lifting things at work or picking a child off the floor, it is important that you use the proper technique. Bend at your knees, use your leg strength to help lift, hold the object close to your body, and avoid any abnormal twists of the body. If you do get hurt while lifting, chiropractic care is the way to heal!

Alleviating Back Pain for Better Health and Sleep

Reducing your pain and achieving optimal health and sleep requires work, but it can be done. With routine chiropractic care and some simple changes to your daily lifestyle, you can reduce your pain, improve your sleep, and feel more energized in no time!
