Can Items Cause Back Pain?

By Randi Morse

I heard a joke once that being an adult is complaining about how tired you are and wondering why your back is in pain. The sad reason this is so funny is because of how true it is! It seems like the older we get, the more our bodies betray us. Most of us who fell and tumbled and bruised our bodies when we were younger now wake up with back pain after bending over to pick something off the floor! Our bodies don't always age well, no matter how well we take care of them. While there are some precautions you can take to help keep your back healthy and pain-free, there are a few things that could be causing you back pain without you even realizing it. 

Your Office

Did you know that you could be doing serious pain to your back from your office furniture? Our bodies are not meant to be sedentary, but many of us find ourselves sitting in an office chair for hours at a time every day. While there are some amazingly supportive office chairs, your average desk chair does not have the support your back requires. If you're looking for a new chair to help keep you're back pain-free, look for a chair that boasts about low back support. There should be a comfortable spot for your arms to rest and a headrest can help the compression on your spine.

Footwear

I am not someone who cares a great deal about footwear. I like it just as well as any other person, but I don't spend crazy amount of money padding my closet with dozens of shoes and boots. That being said, I do make sure that I purchase shoes that are properly fitted and that provide back support. Shoes that are supportive in the heel and the arch not only are comfortable but also help to keep your spine free from joint restrictions. 

Undergarment Support

There are tons of articles online that talk about finding support with a properly fitted bra. If your bra is not fitted correctly, it can damage the health of your spine by pulling it in an unnatural direction. To fix this problem, simply get a bra that is fitted specifically for you. Most specialty undergarment shops will measure you and help you find the right fit.

If you find that you're already dealing with back pain, head to The Joint Chiropractic. The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help repair any restriction issues you may be dealing with, getting your body back in good shape so that you can wake up free from pain.
