5 Simple Steps to Escape Lower Back Pain

By Sandy Schroeder

More than 30 million Americans deal with lower back pain annually. If you are having back pain twinges, you may want to figure out what’s going on to eliminate the triggers now.

Your local chiropractor may be able to help you identify the problem and eliminate the issues.

The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is well equipped to help you assess the problem and find solutions. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors help everyone from teens to seniors find answers to pain and steps for ongoing wellness.

How Chiropractic Helps

When you come in, your chiropractor will assess your pain and ask about your daily routines and health history. A simple targeted spinal adjustment may help you find pain relief and an overall sense of well-being. Often individuals enjoy better sleep, more energy and more alertness, too.

As results are evaluated, weekly 15-minute adjustments may keep the benefits going. At the same time, other potential triggers can be evaluated such as these from Prevention.

If you sit too much – Muscles stop contracting and expanding when we sit a lot and our spines bend forward. Take frequent breaks and fight back as you lay back on a pile of pillows with your arms spread out.

If your purse is overloaded – It’s all too easy to just keep adding things as we lug our purses everywhere. Do a weekly cleanout and make sure your purse does not weigh more than 10 percent of your body weight. If you have to tote a lot, use a backpack to evenly distribute the weight.

If you forget to exercise – I always intend to exercise more than I do, but just remembering to walk daily would be a big help. Studies say exercise can cut back pain from 10 to 50 percent.

If stress is taking over – Stress is considered a leading cause of back pain. Look closely at your levels of tension and worry and then find ways to let the stress go. Head outside, reach out to friends, or try a yoga, or mindfulness meditation class.

If you need a new pillow – Your head and neck need to relax to avoid back pain. Look for a pillow filled with down or a similar substance that lets your head sink into the pillow. Avoid resilient pillows that create stiff, artificial angles placing pressure on the head and neck. You can also place a pillow under your knees to relieve pressure on the spine.

Taking simple steps to avoid lower back pain may be one of the smartest moves you could make.
