It seems too many people just accept back pain as a fact of life, turn to pain relievers when the pain is severe, and fail to look at the underlying cause of their discomfort.
Most people don't realize they have a problem until they perform a normal action like bending down for soap or kicking the foot.
Back pain waiting to happen
Everything that has happened to your back, every major trauma and jerk it has had to absorb over the years is stored in your spine, waiting.
Unless they are relieved by special care or exercises, they will eventually come out in crisis. It is important to know that your brain only perceives 10 percent of what happens in the body.
Therefore, just because you are not experiencing symptoms does not mean that you are necessarily healthy. True health is indicated by your body's ability to adapt to different stressors in your life.
It is said that today we experience as much stress in one day as our ancestors did two hundred years ago in one year! This increased level of stress can cause major problems if your body can't cope with it.
It would be great if chiropractic wasn't the last port of call for people experiencing back pain and taking better care of their spine instead.
You only get one backbone, so it's important to spot issues before they become established. This is why regular chiropractic care is so important to your overall health.
5 tips for a healthy back So, to help you keep your spine in shape, here are my top five tips for a healthy back:
1. Do not sit in soft or deep chairs, as this increases stress on your lumbar spine and discs.
2. Do not stand or sit in one position for long periods of time. If your job involves sitting and bending a lot, take frequent breaks and walk.
3. If reading in a chair, place the book at eye level instead of leaning forward, which strains the neck.
4. Exercise regularly and only do the prescribed movements that are good for your spine (I can provide advice on exercises tailored for you).
5. Sleep in a comfortable, supportive bed that won't bend.
