Pain is pain, right? Wrong.
Patients in pain, when polled, mainly agreed that back pain was the most distracting and debilitating of all areas of pain in the body. If you have ever dealt with a bout of back pain I am sure you can relate. It can take you nearly clear out of commission.
A 2017 survey was conducted by backpainhelp.com. They found that everyday activities such as driving, housework, sex, and working became nearly to impossible for those dealing with back pain.
35% freely admitted that backache pain caused them to be in a bad mood and lose their tempers more easily.
26% of the study group had to quit housework entirely
22% said it caused them to stop working or studying
You do not have to live with constant pain. You can avoid losing what makes you YOU by getting regular chiropractic adjustments.
Some back issues may have a direct cause and effect notation such as a trip and fall or if you twisted the wrong way or lifted something too heavy. But sometimes? Boy… you just wonder “What on earth did I do?” You may even wake up from sleeping wrong and experience back pain. It’s very frustrating.
If you have back pain and can’t identify the cause, check out the top reasons
Lifting and Carrying Children
As parents, we get used to carrying our babies around, but as they get bigger they also get heavier. The difference between 10 lbs. and 35 lbs. is a much greater strain on your entire back. Proper lifting is vital.
Twisting “just the wrong way”
Twisting even just a little bit “the wrong way” can cause microtrauma to your lower back. Repetitive motion in an incorrect stance can cause long-term lasting issues. This is often the case in the gym when exercises are done improperly.
Intermittent Strenuous Exercise
If you are going to work out hard, do it regularly. Doing it “once in a while” and going all out is dangerous and can set back your health rather than push it forward in gains.
Spinal discs deteriorate much faster in people who smoke. That is a major contributing factor in back pain. Quit if at all possible.
Lack of sleep
Your spinal discs 8 hours of sleep a night in order to properly hydrate.
Toss the old bed!
Sleep with your spine straight and vertebrae properly aligned. Toss old mattresses that dip in the center. They force your backbone to bend abnormally and cause back pain.
