Back Pain Tips from Chiropractor

Back Pain Tips from Chiropractor

People seem to have problems with their back more than any other place in their body. Most people accept this as normal. However, back pain can be prevented and treated when it occurs. Therapy from a chiropractor can help but you can also use healthy habits to prevent back pain. Here are some effective tips from the chiropractors at Walker Road Chiropractic in Beaverton, Oregon. 

Tips from a Chiropractor

Watch How You Lift

Poor lifting technique is one of the most common reasons for back pain. This could be from a job or lifting heavy weights. The proper technique is to try to keep your back straight and use your legs to perform the majority of the job. When we stop using our thighs is when back injury occurs. 

Proper Nutrition

Nutrition is essential for spinal health. Drinking water and eating healthy foods can help keep fat off your waist. Carrying extra weight puts pressure on the muscles on your back daily which increases the load on your spine, causing back pain. 

Sensible Exercise

Exercise is a very important part of good health for many different reasons, but it is also a way to injure your spine if you don’t exercise correctly. Whatever kind of exercise you choose, take an opportunity to warm up correctly ahead of time and cool down when you are done. A lot of people wish to simply jump in and get started lifting weights or playing a sport, however your back muscles will be tight and cold. Find an exercise that is inside your physical fitness range and protect your spine before, during and afterwards.

Avoid Prolonged Sitting

Generally speaking, individuals sit a lot more than they used to. Many professions require long hours in a computer and it may take a toll on your health. The human body was made to move, so if you sit all day long you are compressing the disks in your spine. Obviously everyone can’t just switch careers, but you can get up and walk about a little every hour through the day to take off some pressure.
