Low back pain is one of the more common back problems a person might experience over the course of their life. Acute lower back pain can last anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks while chronic lower back pain lasts over 3 months.
Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few ways to avoid lower back pain in order to stay in the game and stay healthy.
Stretch it Out
Stretching before you start your day and after your day comes to an end is a great way to bookend your days and give your body the tension relief it needs to start over fresh tomorrow. Stretching is good for your back, neck, legs, and joints when done properly.
Strengthen Your Back
Do low weight exercises that engage your core muscle groups and make sure that you're doing your part to strengthen your back muscles, which help protect your spine. When you strengthen your back you'll notice more resilience, and, conversely, you'll start to feel less good when you don't work out your back.
Visit the Chiropractor
Visiting your chiropractor periodically, even when you're feeling healthy and well, will provide you with countless health benefits while giving your body the proper maintenance from the wear and tear we go through each day.
