Do You Have Back Pain? Consider This Advice

By Virginia Laird

At the end of the day are you one who suffers with back pain but has no idea what may have caused the problem? If this describes you, chiropractors suggest there are many things in your daily routine which can be the culprit or contribute to this pain. It is wise to take a look at your daily activities and your fashion to determine where you can make changes. A few questions to ask yourself include:

  • Are you sleeping on an old mattress?
  • Do you wear heels too often?
  • Do you keep good posture?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, it may be worth your while to make some changes. Chiropractors offer several tips on how to help prevent back pain when dealing with these issues.

Your Mattress May Be Too Old

If you were one who suffers with severe or mild back pain, it may be worth looking into your mattress. Research suggests that sleeping on a mattress which is too old can be a reason for back pain. As mattresses age, the inner workings can break down and cause sagging in the wrong places, which puts pressure on your back as you sleep. It is advised by chiropractors that if your mattress is older than eight years it is time to replace it. While this is not a hard and fast rule it is a great one to live by.

You Probably Wear High Heels Too Often

Are you a lover of high heels? The love of these beautiful shoes can be the sole contributer of back pain. Chiropractors suggest that high heels can affect your posture as well as your stride. This can cause shifting of the back, which can lead to restriction and is very painful. Chiropractors advise if you cannot live without your heels, try to keep them at or below two inches. Another suggestion is to try to not wear them daily.

You Probably Use Bad Posture

Take a brief look at your posture. Is it correct? Unless you are one who practices proper posture at all times, this can be the reason for back pain. While proper posture does not feel natural for many, it is best. If you find yourself hunching over for whatever reason, take a minute to practice bringing your shoulders back. Chiropractors suggest that those who do not have proper posture should stretch daily. This stretching can allow you to train yourself to use proper posture. Another recommendation offered by chiropractors to help your posture is to take up yoga. Yoga is a class which helps with posture, muscle strength, and meditation.

If you are one who struggles with severe back pain it may be wise to visit your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. With no appointment necessary you can get your pain prevention plan started as quickly as you can get there. Drop by today on your way home from work.
