Back Pain Can Afflict Anyone!

By Donna Stark

It used to be that back pain was just a problem for those going through the aging process, but with the tremendous increase of sedentary activities and a rise in elite youth sports, back pain has now turned into an epidemic for people of all ages. Any adult, teen, or child can experience the discomfort that comes from lower back pain, and if you aren't careful, you could experience it too. Of course, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic don't want that to happen, so they have created a list of suggestions of how to improve the health of your spine. Take a look.

Change Your Sleeping Position

Did you know there is a bad, better, and best way to sleep? Your sleeping position can have a significant effect on your spinal health and the way you feel during the day. Studies show that stomach sleeping has a higher risk for back issues than side or back sleeping do, and that back sleeping is the best way to keep your spine in a safe, neutral position.

Focus on Correct Posture

Good posture relies on the correct alignment of the body. When your body is not in proper alignment, you may find it easier to slouch or hunch over more, which can lead to tension, strain, and joint dysfunction. It may also make your pain feel worse. So, try to sit up straight with your shoulders pulled back and relaxed, distribute your weight evenly with your chin parallel to the ground when standing, and invest in a supportive mattress and pillow set for your bed.

Exercise Daily

It's time to get into the habit of exercising at least 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise improves the function and increases the strength of the muscles that support the spine.  And because it does this, your risk of back pain is greatly reduced. Unsure of where to start? Try some low-impact exercises, such as walking, swimming, or cycling first and increase the intensity of your workouts as you see fit.

Get Adjusted

Even if you are already prioritizing the health of your back, it's still a good idea to get some additional help, and establishing routine chiropractic care is one of the best ways to do so. Chiropractic care corrects alignment issues, eases tension and strain, reduces inflammation, restores joint function, and alleviates pain. On top of that, your local chiropractor will also share plenty of other lifestyle tips on how to achieve a pain-free back!

Avoiding Back Pain

In addition to reducing your risk of lower back pain, following the tips above and seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can also improve your overall health, wellness, and quality of life! So start today and come on in for an adjustment. You won't believe the difference it will make in your life!
