Some Simple Ways to Help Prevent Back Pain
You can find relief for back pain. We can help you find the root cause of your back pain by a consultation and potentially making an adjustment. What if we said that you could prevent your back pain from happening?
A few simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference. Here are some suggestions:
Physical inflammation can be reduced by staying active. Regular exercise can also help reduce muscle tension. Tip: Strengthen your core to protect the lower back from pain.
Include certain foods in your diet
Anti-inflammatory foods or foods that reduce inflammation are recommended to help prevent back pain. The following foods are anti-inflammatory: tomatoes, olive oil, leafy greens, garlic, herbs, and nuts. Tip: Although the list of anti-inflammatory food options is long, we believe that what we have just listed would make an excellent salad.
Deep breaths and meditation
Are you feeling the stress of the day? Spending too much time working? Do you have a list of chores that must be completed in your home? Reflect on the positive aspects of your day. The goal is to feel less stressed. No matter what that means for you, don't be afraid to try it. Stress can cause us to tense up and lead to back pain, headaches and general unhappiness. Tip: Taking deep, relaxing breaths can help relieve tension.
Keep a proper posture
Our posture is something we don't think about. We move about our daily lives sitting or standing in a way that feels natural. Proper posture can prevent backache, muscular pain, and other problems. Proper posture is about teaching your body how to stand, walk and sit in a way that places the least strain on ligaments and supporting muscles. Tip: Sit straight and square with weight evenly distributed between both hips.
These habits incorporated into your daily life will help you achieve maximum results and a pain-free future.
