6 Tips for Living Free From Back Pain

Back pain is something no one wants to deal with. Whether you’re currently suffering or want to prevent it, these tips from Dr. Gitto at Advanced Chiropractic and Functional Nutrition in Northfield, NJ, can help.

Stay in Shape

Exercising regularly is essential for your overall health, but you might not understand how important it is for your spinal health. Maintaining a healthy weight ensures that your back doesn’t have to accommodate undue stress. And keeping your core strong provides the necessary support for your spine.

This doesn’t mean, however, that you have to live at the gym or follow a strenuous program. You just need to get your body moving. Everything from daily walks to yoga and swimming can help you achieve this.

Be Mindful of Your Posture

It’s super easy to slouch, especially as the day goes on. And with so many people leaning over a device – either for work or while scrolling through social media – posture suffers. Unfortunately, this puts undue stress on the back leading to unnecessary pain.

Eat Well

Like the engine of a car, your body needs fuel to move, heal from the stress of the day, and operate smoothly. However, it needs the right type of fuel to do that – something that can vary between individuals, depending on lifestyle and needs.

Be Diligent During Physical Tasks

Whether you’re lifting heavy items at work or lifting your little ones at home, you must be careful. Always follow proper lifting techniques, reduce twisting motions, and take breaks to stretch and minimize your risk of overuse injuries.

Keep Your Shoes in Good Shape

Did you know that your back pain could be coming from your feet? It’s true. While foot structure can be a determining factor – one that should be addressed – worn-out shoes that lack proper support are a leading culprit.

Seek Regular Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor can certainly help you get rid of back pain, but one can also help you prevent back pain. Chiropractors can provide nutritional guidance, weight loss plans, and posture correction. They can also help you choose supportive shoes and provide custom orthotics for optimal support. Additionally, they can help you maintain spinal health and alignment through adjustments, cold laser therapy, therapeutic exercises, and more.
