Back Pain: Go With Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

By Stephen R. Farris

Did you know that back pain is the leading cause for disability in the world? It's true. Another astonishing fact is that one-half of U.S. citizens lose work time due to back problems or injuries. That's a lot of folks and a whole lot of down time for companies as well.

Since your back is made up of joints, ligaments and discs, it's susceptible to sprains, strains, tears and ruptures, whether you're lifting something heavy or something as light as a needle stuck in the carpet. 

It's enough to make you not want to move at all sometimes. However, back problems and injuries can be prevented a number of ways. And if you are suffering from problems in your back, there are ways to relieve the pain without the use of drugs.

Preventing Back Problems

Eating a lot of fast food and the wrong types of food can lead to weight gain, and that's not good on your back or waistline. Face it, it's not good at all. Maintaining proper weight and eating foods good for you, like fresh fruits and leafy, green vegetables, along with healthy proteins found in chicken and turkey are key to getting the minerals and nutrients you need to help keep your joints and muscles strong and vibrant. Staying active is essential for your back too. Laying around or sitting all the time weakens muscles in your back, and could lead to pulls or strains. Make sure you go for regular checkups to your chiropractor so they can ensure your back is healthy for most activities. 

Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation Proves Much Better Than Drugs

Taking drugs, such as anti-inflammatory medications, to relieve back pain is not always enough. It may be a temporary fix, but there might be something else going on that keeps causing you pain. On top of that, medications can become addictive and eventually weaken your back more or lead to other health problems. 

Chiropractic spinal manipulation has proven to be the better approach to relieving back pain. It's all natural and is a drug-free treatment. If you are taking medication for back pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment can help you reduce the amount of medication you take or eliminate the use of them completely.
