Got back pain? You’re not alone. Consider these do’s and don’ts to help you get through and out of injury.
DO: Strengthen your core. Regular exercise strengthens important core muscle groups including obliques, pelvic floor and deep abdominals.
DON’T: Sleep on your stomach! Stomach sleepers put the largest amount of pressure on their spine, head and neck leading to pain throughout the day.
DO: Keep hydrated. Because most of our body is water, it needs proper, steady intake to keep it functioning properly.
DON’T: Sit for long periods of time. Do you work behind a desk all day? Set a reminder to get up and move once each hour.
DO: Visit our practice to get checked. You shouldn’t have to live in pain, and chiropractic care works to correct the underlying issue. Give our practice a call today.
