Back Facts to Keep You Active

Nothing can slow you down faster than a bad back. Back pain can make EVERYTHING DIFFICULT: exercise, playing sports, picking up your kids, or even just going to the grocery store!
Age, lack of exercise, excess weight, improper lifting, poor posture and too many hours sitting can all result in acute or chronic low back pain. The bad news is that research has shown that over 90% of people will experience back pain at some point in their life. The good news? Researchers have also found that Chiropractic care can not only help get you back on track after an injury, but it could also help PREVENT future episodes of back pain from occurring!

Your spine is a marvel of engineering and design. The curves in your neck, mid-back, and low back distribute the load of gravity naturally. Therefore The bones and discs of the spine act as a natural shock absorption system that is both strong and flexible. And winding its way through it all is our spinal cord and nerve roots, the miraculous master communication system that keeps our brain and body connected and working properly!! So keeping your back healthy is much more important than just avoiding minor aches and pains. A stable and supported spine is essential for maintaining a high quality of life.

Here are a few take away points:
  • The bones and discs of the spine make up a flexible suit  of armor for your nervous system.
  • Back pain is often caused by common injuries to multiple tissues of the spine, which can include the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and/or discs of the spine–back pain is NOT caused by a lack of pain killers!!
  • Chiropractic care has been shown to help over 90% of people find relief from back pain while also providing a significant improvement in function.
The bottom line is that Chiropractic can help you function better and heal better, so you can feel better and do more of the things you enjoy with the people you love!!

As Doctors of Chiropractic we here at Rom Family Chiropractic can assess the “health” of your spine through x-rays and a physical exam looking at range of motion, strength, and posture. If you sit more than a combined 5 hours a day at school, at work, or in the car– and you don’t have a back issue yet– it’s smart to periodically have your spine checked in order to help you take a PROACTIVE, PREVENTATIVE approach to your spinal health!

Research has shown that maintenance Chiropractic care can help detect, and prevent future episodes of back pain. And, as you now know, good spinal health is directly associated with living your best life!
