Those who suffer from chronic back pain know just how devastating and debilitating it can be.
While nearly every adult in the United States has or will experience some back pain during their life, the cause of this pain isn’t necessarily connected to your back.
Common Sources of Back Pain
Our Chiropractors recommend reviewing the following sources of back pain to understand whether or not you fall into these categories.
If you are currently experiencing some back pain, make sure to give us a call. We can schedule you for a consultation with one of our doctors within the week; helping you return to your normal way of life.
Misalignment Within Your Hips
If you find yourself taking uneven steps throughout the day, carrying heavy objects on one side of your boy, or not wearing the right type of supportive shoes, then your hips can easily become misaligned.
This kind of condition of stems from having a weak back, pelvic, or core muscles that are worsened by improper shoe wear.
Continuously Straining Your Neck Due To The Technology You Use
Looking down at your phone or tablet device places a tremendous amount of stress and strain on your neck, which transfers down to your back area.
Texting or playing on your mobile device for prolonged periods of time can cause your neck tissue to become overstretched, leading to the development of spinal misalignment.
Because of the demographics that tend to use these forms of technology, our Chiropractors are beginning to see more teenagers and younger children who suffer from symptoms associated with what’s known as “text neck.”
Sitting For Long Periods of Time
If you find yourself sitting at a desk all day or in some stationary position, you are vulnerable to a range of conditions that all affect the health of your joints.
Studies have shown that sitting in one place for four hours at a time is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes, considering the impact it has on your cardiovascular system.
That’s why our Chiropractors recommend using a variety of ergonomic equipment that helps reduce stress on your hands, fingers, wrists, neck and back.
In addition to this, try to stand up and walk around for five minutes each hour.
