There are ways to AVOID lower back pain. Chiropractic treatment is great but never having pain is better.
Here are the 3 Keys.
1. Flexibility is key. Normal flexibility is normal when you are young but as we age or have injuries flexibility starts to decrease. Stretching on a daily basis will help you avoid back issues. Knees to the chest, hamstrings and quadriceps need to stay flexible.
2. Strength is the next key. If you are young and balance on curbs, have PE and stay active then you are probably okay. Core strengthening for the small stabilizing muscles in your back are the key. Bird dogs, planks, bridges and other balance exercises.
3. Minimize sitting. If you have a sitting job, get up and move every 45-60 mins. Sitting compressing your discs will eventually get your back unless you do all you can to minimize the effects of sitting. Standing desks, stretching each hour, seating discs can help.
Chiropractic treatment keeps your back flexible and your discs healthy. Come to our Roseville office and see our chiropractors for more tips.
