Saying Goodbye to Chronic Back Pain

By Donna Stark

Even if it comes and goes or fades in and out with intensity, if your back pain has hung around for longer than three months, it is considered to be a chronic condition. And as upsetting and frustrating as that may be, it's important to know you are not alone. There are many others who are also experiencing similar pain ... but even more who have eliminated it entirely. Which begs the question, "How did they accomplish that?" Well, they attained relief by seeking out the best care possible and making some simple changes to their daily lifestyle. Here are some of the steps they have taken.

Routine Chiropractic Care

The first step to take when suffering from chronic back pain is to get quality care from an experienced and respected chiropractor. Fortunately, you don't have to go far to achieve that because your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are right down the road and have been successfully treating back pain for years. Chiropractic adjustments help align the spine, ease muscle tension, reduce inflammation, and promote proper posture. 

Physical Activity

Once your pain starts to lessen with chiropractic adjustments, you may feel good enough to start moving again. And that's a good thing because daily exercise is one of the most effective ways to improve the health and strength of your back. If you are unsure of where to start, and to avoid the risk of injury, ask your chiropractor for suggestions or consider working with a personal trainer.

Yoga and Tai Chi

Yes, this is another example of physical activity, but there is a separate component to yoga and tai chi that many other exercises don't have. In addition to stretching out the tense muscles contributing to your pain, these two activities can also help you achieve a balanced positivity that centers your mind and releases stress. A healthier mind can manage pain much better than an unhealthy one.

Diet Overhaul

If you have too much inflammation in the body, a nutritious diet is a great way to eliminate some of it. Start by reducing your intake of sugar, fat, salt, and processed foods and replace those items with lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and heart-healthy fats. If a complete diet overhaul sounds too drastic for you though, just start with one meal at a time. Sooner than later, you won't even have to think about forcing yourself to eat healthier foods because your body will eventually start to crave them!

Saying Goodbye to Chronic Back Pain

By getting the best care from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic and making some simple changes to your daily routine, you may be able to say goodbye to your back pain forever! Doesn't that sound great?
