Here's What You Can Do to Ease Back Pain

By Virginia Laird

Each year, millions set out on a journey to eliminate back pain that may be lingering for far too long. Many of those who struggle with pain may find themselves unable to enjoy much of the family fun and other daily activities. Chiropractors say that there are several things you can do to help ease your pain. A few of their tips include:

  • Stretch before starting your day
  • Dress comfortably
  • Get plenty of sleep 
  • Go to the chiropractor

Stretch Before Starting Your Day

Chiropractors say that starting your day with stretches can be enough to help prevent back pain throughout your day. These stretches can be simple, but should include the back and neck. If you are serious about easing your pain, it may be in your best interest to add stretching to your morning routine.

Dress Comfortably

Wearing comfortable clothing is one way to help prevent back pain. Chiropractors say that wearing clothes that are too tight can restrict movement that can cause back pain. Another piece of your attire that can lead to back pain is the shoes you choose. Wearing shoes that fall short of providing support can be the culprit of back pain, as well as shoes that alter your natural stride. It is suggested that you keep your heels at or below two inches to prevent back pain.

Get Plenty of Sleep

There is evidence to suggest a link between sleep and back pain. Chiropractors say that where there is a lack of sleep, the body can struggle to function properly. It is advised that the average adult should strive to get at least six hours of sleep each night to help prevent back pain. Start tonight getting the sleep you need.

Go to the Chiropractor

According to research, making routine trips to the chiropractor can be beneficial in preventing back pain. Chiropractors focus their care on the spine. They work, using small adjustments, to restore function to the spine and release tension that builds throughout the day. Even more exciting is that as you visit with your chiropractor, together you will establish a plan of action geared to meet your needs. If this type of care sounds like something you are ready to begin, consider dropping by The Joint Chiropractic in your community to get started. With nearly 500 locations nationwide you are sure to find one nearby. And with no appointment necessary, getting your routine care started can be as simple as stopping by at your earliest convenience.
