Lifestyle Changes to Improve Back Health

By Sara Butler

If your back tends to cause you pain and discomfort on a nearly daily basis, then it’s time to uncover the cause behind it. It may be something as simple as lifestyle choices you’re making. At The Joint Chiropractic, lifestyle changes have been found to have a big impact on spinal health and wellness. Here are a few ways you can assess your lifestyle and help fight back against back pain.

How You Sleep

If you get up in the morning feeling as if you have been sleeping on a bed of nails all night long, then it’s time to take a look at how you sleep. Chiropractors agree that the best sleep position for spine health is on your back. When you sleep on your back, you are helping to keep your spine in neutral alignment, especially if you use pillows to support your legs, knees, and hips. If you think you’re doing all you can do but still wake up feeling terrible, then discuss your sleep habits with your chiropractor at The Joint.

Do You Stretch?

Taking the time to stretch is one of the most important things you can do for spinal health. If you don’t take the time to stretch out your muscles, then they get tight -- and tight muscles contribute to joint dysfunction and restriction, leading to pain and discomfort. If your muscles are tight, then even everyday activities such as cleaning the house can become a hazard to your health, causing injury and pain. So get up each morning and do a bit of light stretching -- you’ll be better off for it.

You Don’t Move

Movement is very important to spinal health and overall health too. If you don’t take your body through its full range of motion, then your chances of experiencing back pain increase. Many people mistakenly believe that too much movement causes back pain. While that may be true in some cases, not moving enough is often the culprit. So, try to get up and move at least once an hour when you’re at work and home and find an activity that gets you moving in your spare time too.

Visiting the Chiropractor

Of course, one of the best things you can do to ensure spinal health is to have regular chiropractic adjustments. The chiropractors at The Joint can help you keep things in line, decreasing back pain and helping your overall health in the process.
