Ah, my aching back! I feel better when I walk!

Back Pain always seems to hit abruptly without warning. On the spur of the moment, you're wondering what caused the incredible pain in your backbone and neck. You wonder if your age is beginning to set in, with the familiar chronological age woes. You shrug off this age probability and realize you're to mind your back and posture, now. Being aware of your back is the first step to avoiding pain, and possibly curing your back ailment, coupled with regular exercise, including stretching and muscle toning.

Your posture has a lot to do with the cause of your back pain, unless you were, unfortunately, injured in a car accident or slip and fall mishap. When you're involved in your daily activities, your posture is the last thing you think about, until you feel a nudging nip of pain that signals you to relax and rest for a while. This is the time to stand up, walk around and force a stretch on your back with a couple of deep breaths, or to lay down with an ice pack to calm the inflammation in your back that's your source of pain.

Sitting in front of a computer all day can produce havoc on your posture, especially when you are crunching at a computer desk, inputting data or doing countless hours of research in front of an LCD screen. Take short breaks from your sitting posture by going for a terse walk, or stretch to get your blood circulating to lessen your pain.

The absolute best cure for every type of back pain is to get a regular chiropractic adjustment. Subluxations are the main cause of back pain. It occurs when your spinal column becomes misaligned, and spinal vertebrae become dislocated. This causes interference in nerve signals to your brain and causes pain.

Mostly, everyone has ingrown mild subluxations just for standing upright and doing normal daily activities like sitting and walking. If you ever suffered from a migraine or pressure in your eye area, you may suffer from back pain. Getting a gentle chiropractic adjustment from the time you're young up to the adult age hood can prevent complaints, from allergies to fibromyalgia to pinched nerves, to complications in pregnancy, and whiplash syndrome, etc.

Your spinal column is in every sense is the “backbone” of your body. It literally anchors, directly or indirectly every bone in your body and signals all your nerve impulses to your brain. These signals easily become misaligned from common everyday activities. Chiropractic care keeps your spinal nerves at peak efficiency and is the best literal cure for back pain.

A Chiropractic Adjustment Will Alleviate Your Back Pain

Chiropractic care is the only form of back treatment that serves to re-establish normal vertebral motion and position in the spine through spinal adjustments that correct the underlying spinal misalignment in curing back pain. All other treatments, such as muscle relaxants, painkillers and bed rest, merely serve to decrease the symptoms of your back inflammation that's the temporary source of your acute pain. It doesn't correct the problem itself.

The “cracking” or “popping” sound you hear when a chiropractor adjusts your spinal vertebrae is merely toxic gas escaping from the synovial fluid. He releases the pressure with your chiropractic adjustment. This instant release of spinal pressure from a chiropractic adjustment aids your back to heal and function with less pain from its inner core.

After your chiropractic adjustment, keeping fit is the next-best remedy for all back pain relief, including lower-back pain. This you must do to maintain a healthy back. Walking for a mile or a bit more a couple of times a week is a proper exercise to keep your back healthy, since walking doesn't put stress on your joints, except if you are corpulent or obese. If you're overweight, it's necessary to do what it takes to keep your weight reasonable for your body type and height. Build up your back muscles with weights and yoga poses that stretch your back. Do these to ward off back pain and to keep your back healthy?

Taking care of your back is a continuous life event! You can expect to exercise once in a while and see a chiropractor when you feel like it. Regular exercise and back maintenance care are the secrets to living an active life, without suffering from back pain. Even if, you're not experiencing any sort of back pain, it's essential to get checked out by a chiropractor for any abnormal subluxation and receive maintenance care by getting a regular spinal adjustment approximately every six weeks or so.

Chiropractic care deals with the whole person and treats the causes of health problems rather than the symptoms. In addition, to restore your health and increase your resistance to disease, a chiropractor will seek to help you maintain proper health, without the use of drugs, painkillers, and surgical procedures.

    Recently I took my 21 month old daughter Natalie to see Dr Mark Smith who has been my mtorehs chiropractor for just over a year. I was concerned that Natalie appeared to be having trouble walking straight. She appeared very stiff and bent over while walking. After the treatment i was thrilled to see that her posture improved significantly and Natalie went from being very bent over to almost straight. Natalie is now walking around and climbing so much more since the treatment. I wish to give Dr Smith a big thank you. - Sarah

    Chiropractic care helps tremendously, however, there may come a time when a person will need to discontinue treatment for insurance or personal reasons. At that time you will need to rely on your faculties to feel better and you must not ever stop moving.

    Good chiropractic care for back most problems is by far a best alternative to prescriptions that create their own problems in our bodies. I'm thankful for having had this type of care in the past and through it having learned for the most part to address my particular back problem through other means--exercise primarily.

    Thank you Healingone! We only get one body in life; pain is never amusing: Chiropractic care takes care of issues before they become a major health problem.
