Active Living Without Back Pain: 3 Tips to Avoid It

By Virginia Laird

An active life can be the most exciting kind. From chasing your kids from one activity to the next, finding time to exercise, working in the yard, and enjoying life in the outdoors, there can be times when these activities can take a toll on the body, especially the back. For those who suffer with back pain, living an active lifestyle can be a painful chore. Experts suggest there are several things that can be done to help deter back pain while enjoying life with the family, including:

  • Wear good shoes
  • Take breaks and get off your feet
  • Stretch before physical activity
  • Check in with your chiropractor

Wear Good Shoes

Living a life full of activities can be stressful on the back and joints. Rather than letting this get you down, chiropractors suggest investing in a good pair of shoes. It is recommended that your shoes offer plenty of support to your arch. Making sure your shoes are comfortable can prevent back pain.

Take Breaks and Get Off Your Feet

For many who find themselves constantly on-the-go, taking time to get off your feet can be the ticket to reducing and preventing back pain. Chiropractors suggest that you make sure to keep the health of your back a priority while staying active.

Stretch Before Physical Activity

Chiropractors suggest that one sure way to help alleviate and prevent back pain is to stretch before participating in any physical activity. This can mean lifting heavy items, playing sports, working out, etc. The next time you get ready to put your body to the test, take a few minutes to stretch.
