What You Wear Can Cause You Pain

By Virginia Laird

When it comes to back pain, there are many factors that can get in the way. One of the largest contributing factors include what you choose to wear. Chiropractors have suggested a variety of tips to help you make wise decisions when it comes to your back pain and your fashion choices. These include:

  • Skip the large tote
  • Wear comfortable shoes 
  • Check in with your chiropractor

Skip the Large Tote

Life on the go can mean you need to rely on a variety of bags to get you from one place to the other. These tend to be packed down with a ton of items that can lead to a great deal of weight. As you lug around these large totes you may find that your back is increasingly in pain. Chiropractors say that it is best to avoid the large tote in the situations. Instead, it is best to opt for a smaller bag (or several smaller bags) so that you only take what you need when you need it. This is one trick to help prevent packing too much weight on your spine. according to research too much weight carried in the bag can cause restriction in the spine which leads to a great deal of pain.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

The shoes you choose to wear can't be a factor in back pain that you suffer from or lack thereof. Chiropractors say that wearing comfortable shoes at all times is best. Comfortable shoes are best described as shoes that offer support for the foot as well as the back. This is generally a good tennis shoe or a shoe that is not super high in the heel. As you prepare to head out the door, make sure that you are wearing shoes that provide the comfort you need to fight off any back pain that may try to invade.

Check in With Your Chiropractor

While these tips can be very helpful in managing back pain, there are times when a trip to your chiropractor is necessary. If you find yourself struggling to rid your life of this pain, consider making a trip to The Joint Chiropractic in your community. There, your chiropractor will work to help establish a personalized pain prevention plan catered to your needs. When you are ready to begin this plan, stop by The Joint on your neighborhood.
