Simple Tips to Reduce Your Back Pain

By Donna Stark

If you are one of the millions of people who have moved from the office to the home (or should I say kitchen table?) over the past year, you may be feeling a little bit of back pain right now. And if you are, don't worry! There's some good news heading your way. With some simple changes to your lifestyle and routine chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic, you will be able to get rid of your pain in no time! Take a look.

Correct Your Posture

While you are clicking away on your keyboard or talking to people on the phone, give yourself a quick look over. Are you slumped or hunched over? Are both feet planted squarely on the floor? Are you holding your body in an awkward position? Being mindful of your posture and correcting the way you carry your body may have a huge impact on how well you feel throughout the day.

Take Frequent Breaks

Even though it can be easy to get lost in your work, make sure you stop to take a break at least every hour or so. Prolonged sitting can cause a host of health issues that you certainly do not want to mix with the back pain you are already suffering from. So, stand up, stretch, and get your body moving! This is the perfect time for a quick walk down the hall.

Exercise Daily

Speaking of getting your body moving ... how often do you exercise? If your answer is every day, you win! But if it's not, let's talk about some ways to change that because physical activity is crucial to reduce pain and discomfort. You can start your morning with a brisk walk, go for a bike ride in the afternoon, or practice some yoga when you are finished with work. It doesn't matter what you do, just keep your body in motion!

Routine Chiropractic Care

In addition to the suggestions above, routine chiropractic care should also become one of your new healthy habits! The adjustments your chiropractor provides can alleviate your back pain by easing muscle tension, correcting alignment issues, encouraging good posture, and eliminating stress from the body. Your chiropractor will also offer plenty of tips on how you can improve the other areas in your life, such as diet and sleep, so you can start feeling better as fast as you can!

No More Back Pain

Hopefully, the small lifestyle changes above can get you back on the path to pain-free and comfortable days, but if you feel like you need to do more, bring the subject up with your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They have plenty of advice to share and care to give!
