In the US, patients spend a little over $240 billion on musculoskeletal conditions -- due largely to the fact that over 80% of American adults will experience back pain.
Below are a few tips that will help you shorten your recovery time if you experience the unfortunate event of a back injury.
1.) Keep Good Posture
When you get a back injury it can be tempting to put yourself in a position that gives you any sort of level of comfort. But it's important when you experience a back injury to keep good posture, stand up with your feet underneath your hips, and keep your back and neck straight. Incorporate a stretch routine in your mornings and evenings to help reduce strain and tightness.
2.) Manage Pain / Restore Mobility
It's important in your recovery to try to regain your mobility while at the same time keep your pain at manageable levels. Chiropractic care is a great way to manage your pain the drug-free way!
3.) Work on Your Endurance
As you begin to heal, start to push yourself harder and make your workouts more rigorous. Maintain perfect mechanics in your workouts, and, above, maintain good posture.
By incorporating the principles listed above you'll give yourself a good shot at a speedy, full recovery. If you experience back pain that persists even in the face of following these simple steps, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation.
