How to Ease Back Pain without Medication

By Sara Butler

Back pain is kind of a big deal. According to the National Institutes of Health and the American Chiropractic Association, Americans have an 80 percent chance of experiencing back pain at some point in their lifetime. It also costs about $90 billion dollars per year in medical as well as non-medical expenses as it impacts the lives of 59 million people in the United States alone. Luckily, the chiropractors at The Joint are here to help with a few ways you can work to prevent or control back pain that doesn’t have to do with medication!

Regular Chiropractic Care

Regular adjustments from the chiropractors at The Joint is a proven way to effectively and naturally treat back pain. Non-invasive adjustments are gentle and help to remove joint restrictions or dysfunctions that are contributing to back pain. All that without the dangers associated with traditional medical treatments for back pain, such as surgery or medication.

Work on Core Strength

Weak core muscles contribute to back pain too. These muscles work to support your spine and if they aren’t up to the task it can place stress and strain on your spine that leads to pain. If you can do exercises daily to help increase core strength, then it will reduce strain on your back and may help with back pain. Talk to your chiropractor at The Joint about which exercises you can do to help you achieve this.

Don’t Use a Back Brace

When people experience back pain, they think that perhaps using a back brace is a good option to help, but it will actually cause more problems in the long run. If your chiropractor suggests using one in the short term, it’s important to remember that it’s not a long-term solution. A better solution is to build strength in your muscles that support your back, so you have less chance of experiencing injury or pain in the future.

Work on Your Posture

Your posture impacts more than simply how you look. Good posture works to help maintain alignment and support the spine properly, reducing the stress placed on ligaments, and working to prevent muscle strain. Talk to your chiropractor about the ways you can work to improve your posture.

If you have questions about back pain, don't hesitate to reach out to the chiropractors at The Joint!
