Jogging: Don't Let Back Pain Stop You

By Virginia Laird

There is nothing quite like being mentally ready to attack a long jog only to have back pain stop you just a few short steps into the path. This happens to many across the nation each year. Some get so discouraged, they decide never to return to the trail. You don’t have to fall victim to such pain and suffering. Chiropractors advise that there are ways to prevent and manage back pain. As always, if you suffer with severe pain, it is wise to get checked out before another exercise session. A few suggestions chiropractors make to help prevent back pain while jogging include:

  • Use good posture
  • Maintain your jogging shoes
  • Visit your chiropractor routinely

Use Good Posture

What is your posture? If your posture is less than perfect, it may be time to consider making a change. Chiropractors advise using good posture during routine life, as well as on the track, can help prevent back pain. If you need to work on improving your posture, there are a wide variety of stretches which can promote a healthy posture. Some chiropractors encourage yoga as a way to improve posture.

Maintain Your Jogging Shoes

When was the last time you purchased new shoes? The hard truth is, no matter how much you love your shoes, they should be replaced often. Research suggests those who exercise or jog routinely should replace their shoes every four to six months. While you may be one who takes exceptional care of the outer shoe, the cushion and sole break down over time and usage. Chiropractors suggest it is best to keep shoes which have prime cushion and support in the soles to prevent back pain.

Visit Your Chiropractor Routinely

If you haven’t started visiting your chiropractor as a part of routine healthcare, you are missing out. Such care can help prevent and manage back pain. If you are ready to begin your routine care, locate The Joint Chiropractic in your neighborhood. There are no appointments necessary, making your care as readily available as you need it to be.
