Back Pain If you experience back pain, you may be wondering what you can do at home to ease the discomfort and improve your quality of life. Back pain can come in many forms, from a chronic, dull pain to a sharp, shooting pain that seems to come out of nowhere. If you’re tired of suffering, the doctors of King Chiropractic in Urbana, MD have a few easy tips to help.

Exercise More

Contrary to what you might think, exercise can actually help relieve back pain rather than cause it. That’s because regular exercise helps to alleviate tension and inflammation that lead to back pain. Resting or laying down too much can cause the back to become stiff. A good walk each day or other low-impact exercise plan can help improve blood flow and reduce the chances of chronic back pain.

Change Your Sleeping Position

Sometimes we wake up in the morning feeling sore and tired. This could be due to our sleeping position. Urbana patients should talk to their chiropractor about sleep positions that can help relieve and reduce back pain. Your chiropractor might recommend sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, or placing a pillow under your lower back when you rest.

Watch What You Wear

High heels are notorious for causing strain on the lower back, legs, and feet. Doctors recommend no more than one-inch heel to preserve your posture. Also, avoid wearing overly-tight clothing which can interfere with the way we move. If your clothing constricts the way you bend over or sit down, it can strain the back causing back pain or even injury.

If you suffer from chronic or acute back pain, be sure to talk to your Urbana chiropractor about ways to ease your discomfort. In some cases, you may need an adjustment or have an injury that needs treatment. In other cases, these and other simple techniques done at home can save your back.
