Repeating certain daily activities can result in back pain
Your chiropractor will want to learn about how you undertake everyday movements such as bending, lifting and twisting. There are many daily tasks that, if done repetitively and without proper posture or technique, can contribute to back pain:
- Lifting heavy objects without using proper lifting technique
- Driving for extended periods, especially when slouching or sitting too close to the wheel
- Standing for long periods of time without taking breaks or wearing supportive shoes
- Carrying a heavy backpack or purse on one shoulder can cause muscle strain
It’s important to be mindful of these tasks and to take breaks or adjust posture as needed to prevent back pain. Regular exercise and stretching can also help to strengthen the muscles that support the back and reduce the risk of injury.
Your chiropractor can help you treat the cause, not the symptoms
A slight loss of proper movement of the joints can interfere with the healthy working of your spine, which in turn can cause you pain. Chiropractic is different from traditional treatment methods because it treats the cause of pain, not the pain itself.
Your chiropractor will carry out a full examination as well as asking you questions relating to your posture, medical history and lifestyle. This will help your chiropractor discover the reason for your back pain and hopefully offer a diagnosis for it.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your treatment will begin. In most cases this will involve manipulating stiff joints to free them up and to also remove spinal nerve irritation. This kind of treatment is usually free of pain, but it is possible that you may feel some temporary discomfort if your back is very sore.
It may also be recommend ice or heat treatment or massage. Recent scientific research proves that remaining active will aid your recovery. Resting for long periods of time will weaken the bones and muscles so you may also be advised to exercise to ease your pain, and help your body recover.
