Simple Methods for Minimizing Back Pain in Life

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sleeping without a pillow, working long hours, and standing on your feet all day. What do these three scenarios have in common? They are all followed by back pain for many people. The truth is that most people experience back pain at one point or another. It’s common, even if not necessarily normal, to experience pain. But even if it happens often and to the majority of people, it’s not necessarily something that we want to accept as a part of life. Unfortunately, completely changing our lives to prevent pain isn’t always an option. So what should we do? Take a look at these tips for managing stubborn back pain without totally altering the life you currently lead.

Get More (and Better!) Sleep

A lack of sleep can do a number on the body. When the sleep that you get is poor quality, it can cause stiffness and pain in the back. So how can this be improved? It doesn’t actually take much change to the routine to make a significant impact on the back. Make sure that both your mattress and pillow are good quality. It also helps to go to bed and wake up early, turn down the temperature, and stick to a strict no technology rule in the bedroom.

Walk and Stretch Every Day

It’s best to exercise on a daily basis, but to keep the routine as simple as possible, shoot for a simple walk and stretch. This can be done at any time of the day, which makes it an easy addition. Walking and stretching helps to loosen the joints and muscles, alleviate stiffness, and enhance general flexibility and mobility, which then helps to reduce and prevent back pain from happening in the first place.

Visit With a Chiropractor

This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to minimize back pain and enhance overall spinal health. Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to reduce restrictions in the vertebrae of the spine. What does this do? It minimizes the symptoms that come along with the condition, which might include pain in the back and neck, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, an inability to concentrate, and others. While this might seem like a time consuming addition to the routine, ongoing care can actually enhance health enough to save time, energy, and wellness in the long run.
