When back pain undermines your mornings and sabotages your afternoons and evenings, the pressure to do something builds. Pain relievers are temporary at best, and other solutions may seem confusing.
But a visit to your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic, and an exercise plan with aerobics could make everything a lot better.
Stop by The Joint and learn more about spinal health and how it directly affects your back.
Then see what aerobics can do. Spine.com reminds us that the spine is designed to move. Whatever exercises we do to stretch and strengthen the back, hamstrings and abdomen, can accelerate healing and keep discs, muscles, ligaments and joints healthy.
Looking Closer at Aerobics
According to researchers, people with back pain who do aerobics collect some valuable benefits.
- Lower back pain hurts less and occurs less often.
- Staying active at work and on weekends is more likely. Exercise keeps everything going, instead of just gradually slowing down.
- Weight is less of an issue, which means the joints and the spine are less stressed.
- Natural endorphins generated by exercise help to reduce the need for pain medication. They lift the mood and reduce depression.
- Aerobics are easily available. Try walking, water therapy, stationary bikes or elliptical trainers for starters.
Looking Closer at Chiropractic
Right along with aerobics, you might consider using 15-minute weekly chiropractic sessions to keep your spine healthy and happy.
Starting with a spinal assessment, your chiropractor will be checking for misalignments, called subluxations, of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or the joints. When misalignments are corrected you may experience far-reaching effects on any back, neck or sciatica pain that you have. This improved spinal health may also help with allergies, TMJ, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
As your spinal health improves, you may find your whole body functions better. You may enjoy improved metabolism and digestion, more mental clarity and greater strength when you exercise.
Staying active with the help of exercise and regular chiropractic sessions could help you regain control of your back pain as you continue to move forward. Instead of slowing down, you may find more new ways to enjoy life and stay active.
