Are You Backing Into a Problem? See Your Chiropractor

By Sandy Schroeder

Daily demands and busy schedules can muffle small aches and pains. But back pain can be tougher to ignore, and more serious if it continues.

Many people experience some form of back pain before they are 40. One in eight Americans have back pain at some point in their lives.

Your Chiropractor Can Help

Check your back out now and learn how to protect it. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to get started. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors are well equipped to help you take care of your back.

Your chiropractor may use a spinal adjustment to evaluate your spinal health, and relieve any pain that you are having. You may experience pain relief and an overall sense of well-being.

Then consider a few simple changes in your routine to keep your back healthy.

Start with Posture

Take a good look at yourself in a three-way mirror, or have a friend take a picture of you at your desk. Slouching or hunching over keyboards, phones, and tablets invites back pain and headaches. Make the effort to sit and stand straight.

Fix Your Seating

Sitting puts 40 percent more pressure on your spine than standing, according to Consumer Reports On Health. If you are sitting for many hours every day, make sure your chair supports your back. Keep feet flat on the floor and monitors at eye level. Knees should be slightly higher than hips. Allow about three fingers of space between the chair and the back of the legs. Then remember to take five-minute breaks each hour to walk around or stretch.

Start Moving

Try to include 30 minutes of physical activity in your day. Walk whenever and wherever you can. At the same time, keep your back strong and supple with doctor approved strength and stretching exercises.

Tote and Lift Correctly

Take a good look at your daily tote. Only carry what you really need. Totes should never be more than 10 percent of bodyweight. Make sure they have wide double straps, or divide the weight into two totes. Focus when you lift, keeping objects or children close to the body. Power the lift with your legs. Never bend from the waist to pick up large items.
