Good Posture Can Protect From Pain

By Virginia Laird

The debate over how to protect your back from pain is one with no end in sight. Many who struggle with pain are willing to try a wide variety of pain pills and invasive procedures in an attempt to get back to a pain-free lifestyle. Still, much of the time these solutions fall short of their promised results. However, there are chiropractors who offer some insight on the issue. Many admit there are several things you can do to manage such pain. A few of their tips include:

  • Skip crossing your legs while sitting
  • Check your shoes 
  • Visit your chiropractor

Skip Crossing Your Legs While Sitting

Sitting with your legs crossed at the knee is a nasty habit for millions. Although it can be comfortable, chiropractors say this can put unnecessary stress on your spine. Instead of sitting this way, chiropractors encourage it is best to sit with your feet flat on the ground. If you feel it inevitable to cross your legs, it is best to cross at the ankle. The next time you catch yourself sitting incorrectly, take the time to make the proper adjustments so that you can begin managing your back pain. 

Check Your Shoes

Whether you realize it or not, the shoes you choose have a great deal to do with the posture you keep. Many who struggle to maintain proper posture admit to basking in the glory of beautiful high heels and other shoes that offer little to no support. Chiropractors encourage those who suffer with such pain to consider changing shoes. Instead of reaching for the extremely high heel, it is best to select a shoe with a heel no higher than two inches. It is best to always choose shoes that allow the body to maintain its natural stride. 

Visit Your Chiropractor

Another great thing you can do to help ease your pain and suffering is to include routine chiropractic care as part of your healthcare regimen. Chiropractors typically focus on the care of your vertebrae, although they address other joints as well. Your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic will work with you to determine the root cause of your discomfort and prepare a plan to help you maintain and eliminate such pain. If this sounds like care you are ready for, consider stopping by The Joint Chiropractic nearest you. With nearly 500 locations nationwide you are sure to find one easy to stop by. And with no appointment necessary, getting your routine care started can be as simple as stopping by when you need it most.
