3 Tips to Help Prevent Back Pain

By Virginia Laird

While you may enjoy keeping a fast-paced life, your back may ultimately have a different idea. If you have ever suffered with back pain you know firsthand that it can stop you in your tracks. Still, chiropractors suggest there are a few things you can do to prevent and manage this pain. Doing so can allow you to enjoy life without any interruption. A few tips these chiropractors recommend include:

  • Check your mattress 
  • Make a habit of wearing comfy shoes
  • Visit your chiropractor

Check Your Mattress 

Chiropractors suggest that one way to prevent back pain is to make certain you are sleeping on a good mattress. Research indicates that many keep their mattresses for far too long, trying to get as much life from it as possible. However, it is recommended that if your mattress is older than eight years, it may be time to replace it. Chiropractors admit that a mattress loaded with sags can be the culprit to back pain. Take a look at your mattress today to determine if this could be the cause of your pain.

Make a Habit of Wearing Comfy Shoes

Chiropractors suggest that making a habit of wearing comfy shoes can help deter back pain from taking over your day. While there are a host of shoes that may meet your stylish preferences, extremely high heels and shoes that offer very little support can cause a great deal of back pain. Chiropractors suggest that flats which are attached to the foot and offer support can be what you need to keep back pain at bay. Before you head out the door ready to tackle the day, consider your choice of shoes. If they are not going to last you the entire day without pain, make a change to something more comfortable. 

Visit Your Chiropractor

For the millions who struggle with back pain on a routine basis it may be wise to consider adding chiropractic care to your health care regimen. Chiropractors work to release tension in the joints of the spine as well as restore function. Although many may not be aware, the joints of the spine are constantly shifting, which can cause restriction and ultimately pain. Using adjustments to these joints, chiropractors help manage such pain. If you are ready to you make routine chiropractic care part of your healthcare regimen, drop by The Joint Chiropractic in your community.
