FINDING A SOLUTION TO PREVENT BACK PAIN

service-page-back
Due to the nature of the pain and its causes, a holistic approach is needed in most cases to re-educate and adjust the body. Chiropractors are trained and knowledgeable professionals who use skill - not force or strength - to conduct adjustments that address the cause instead of simply treating a symptom.
Here are a few ways you can help prevent back pain:

1. Sleeping position. Sleeping on your side with your knees pulled up slightly toward your chest is sometimes suggested. Prefer to sleep on your back? Put one pillow under your knees and another under your lower back. Sleeping on your stomach can be especially hard on your back. If you can’t sleep any other way, place a pillow under your hips.

2. Get more exercise. If your back is hurting, you may think the best way to get relief is to limit exercise and to rest. A day or two of rest may help, but more than that may not help the pain. Experts now know that regular physical activity can help ease inflammation and muscle tension.

3. Watch your weight. few extra kilograms, especially in your midsection, can make back pain worse by shifting your center of gravity and putting strain on your lower back.

The above information is general information, chiropractic care is individually based: discuss your specific needs with your chiropractor.
