According to the American Chiropractic Association, one-half of all Americans suffer from back pain every year. Furthermore, back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Therefore, if you are one of the millions of Americans currently suffering from back pain, you are not alone. Thankfully, however, recovery is possible. Here are four ways you can prevent and fight back pain.Back Pain

1. Maintain a Healthy Weight

Whether you are carrying an extra 20 pounds or an extra 200 pounds, carrying excess weight can really put a strain on your body, which can easily lead to back pain and discomfort. Make a concentrated effort to achieve a healthier weight and you might just be surprised at how great you feel.

2. Exercise Regularly

While back pain may make exercise painful or difficult at first, the good news is that regular exercise can really help ease your back pain symptoms when done regularly. Not only will you benefit from a healthier weight, but you will benefit from improved muscle strength and joint flexibility as well. Talk to your chiropractor at King Chiropractic in Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Potomac and Urbana if you need suggestions for where to start.

3. Watch Your Posture

While poor posture may be more comfortable in the short term, once you begin to make poor posture a habit, it can hurt you more than you know. Avoid high heels, don't sit on your wallet and get in the habit of standing and sitting up straight, and your back problems may slowly start to disappear.

4. Avoid Heavy Lifting

Heavy lifting can put quite the strain on your back, especially if you make the common mistake of lifting with your back instead of with your legs. Try improving your lifting technique. If that doesn't help, avoid lifting anything too heavy altogether.

Whether your back pain is mild or severe, the good news is that it doesn't have to last forever. Try the four tips listed above and you may be surprised at the results. If not, be sure to call or visit your chiropractor at King Chiropractic in Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Potomac and Urbana. Our knowledgeable and experienced chiropractors have just the advice and solutions you need to feel your best once again.
