3 Tips to Prevent Back Pain When Stuck Inside

By Virginia Laird

Whether you are chained to a desk at work, or simply lack the motivation to get outside in the cooler weather, being inside with little space to move can be painful. The body needs exercise to release tension that builds in the muscles. Fortunately, chiropractors have offered several tips to help you reduce such pain if you find yourself confined to the inside of your office or home. Some of these tips include:

  • Use correct posture
  • Add stretching to your daily routine
  • Take a quick walk

Use Correct Posture

Chiropractors have long taught the importance of using correct posture as the best way to prevent back pain and injury to the spine. Research suggests that very few people use such posture. Many chiropractors know that correct posture may not come naturally, therefore suggest patients practice such posture by utilizing stretches and yoga.

Add Stretching to Your Daily Routine

Stretching can play a huge role in developing a habit of utilizing good posture. It also helps release tension that inevitably builds with a lack of movement daily. Chiropractors suggest taking time to do light stretches while at work to help prevent back pain, as well as alleviate pain which may arise while on the job. These are not stretches that should require a yoga mat. Simple shoulder shrugs, toe touches, and neck rolls can do the trick.

Take a Quick Walk

You may be stuck indoors, but this does not mean you cannot get a quick walk in. Chiropractors recommend exercise to help relieve and prevent back pain. While at work, take a break to walk. There is no need to have a treadmill or a walking path in your office; the hallway, some stairs, or a quick trip to the restroom can suffice.

If you find your back pain is too painful to get moving, it could be time to visit your chiropractor at the Joint Chiropractic today. There, you can begin your personalized healthcare and pain management plan. With no appointments required, managing your pain is as easy as dropping by on your way home from work, or during your lunch break.
