3 Tips for Preventing Back Pain

By Genevieve Cunningham

Back pain is one of those things that none of us completely escape … you know, like death and taxes. Whether it’s due to injury, the natural aging process, poor sleeping habits, or some other cause, back pain is likely to happen at one point or another. Even though this is basically a part of life, it doesn’t have to take over your life. Check out these three tips for treating current back pain and preventing future back pain from happening in your life.

Exercise Today (and Tomorrow)

Exercise is a great prevention tool for numerous aspects of our health, and back pain is definitely one of them. Exercise keeps the back and body strong, and yet loose and limber at the same time. But it doesn’t do any good to exercise today if you’re not going to do it tomorrow, and the day after, and so on. A regular routine is key to experiencing the benefits. Choose an activity that you enjoy … walking, biking, aerobics … and then do it regularly to enjoy the healthy and pain-free benefits.

Limit Your TV Binges

We all love a good TV binge, but the excessive sitting can really cause a great deal of pain for your back. It doesn’t have to be TV either; it’s any activity that causes you to sit for hours on end. How can you negate these effects? You’ll have to curb your couch potato time and get up and move! Try doing a basic exercise while you watch your favorite show, or simply limit your screen time to one episode at a time. Either way, limiting your time slouching on the couch can impact the health of your back in a positive way.

Get Chiropractic Care

One of the best methods for both treating and preventing back pain is to get chiropractic care. Chiropractors focus specifically on the spine. They’ll search the vertebrae for any misalignments, and then correct them through spinal manipulation. This can reduce pain now as well as prevent those pains from returning in the future. It remains one of the most effective methods for back pain because it attacks the cause of the problem instead of focusing solely on the symptoms. If you truly want a way to protect your back, chiropractic care should be at the top of your list.
