As a West Des Moines Chiropractor, we deal with back pain… a LOT! Almost everyone will experience some form of back pain, ranging from merely irritating to in some cases crippling pain. Whatever the degree of your pain, you shouldn’t have to suffer from unnecessary pain.
There are a few key ideas to keep in mind as you work through your back pain. These simple Do’s and Don’ts can help you manage your pain level either before or during treatment with us.
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 our body is mostly water, it needs proper, steady replenishment to keep functioning properly.
DON’T: Sit for long periods of time.
Do you work at a desk all day? Set a reminder to get up and move at least 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 us a call today.
