Prevention of Chronic Lower Back Pain
Chronic lower back pain can be dangerous for anybody as it lasts for a long time. It has been observed by American Chiropractic Association that 80% of the population will experience some sort of back problems. It has also been estimated by the association that every people suffer from this problem at least once in their life. At the start, the problem arise as a simple or acute pain but if you do not take proper treatment at that time, these back problems may lead to a condition that is characterized by pain lasting for more than 4 months which is referred to as chronic back pain. This kind of pain can disrupt your day to day life and you can’t enjoy your life by participating in various activities.
In this modern era, there are various types of chronic back pain treatment available but if you follow some guidelines strictly, you can prevent from this severe pain. Following are some prevention method which may help you to get rid of these kinds of problem:
• Stand and sit up straight:
You should always stand and sit up straight which reduces pressure on your spine’s natural curves and minimizes muscle tension. Poor posture is always looking bad and also makes you feel bad.
• Change your eating habits:
A good diet always gives you the proper nutrients that are needed for a healthy back. Vitamin D, phosphorus and calcium are keys to healthy bones which are helpful in preventing chronic lower back pain as well as osteoporosis.
• Stop Smoking:
If you have been smoking for many months or years and now you are suffering from chronic lower back pain, you should leave it at the earliest. Smoking is responsible for increasing your sensitivity to pain, making more susceptible to chronic pain. Moreover, it’s also responsible for decreasing your spinal tissues and vertebrae. This speeds up bone degradation and slows the healing process for back injuries.
• Modify your sleeping positions:
Certain sleeping positions may be causes for lower back pain. Back sleepers should place a pillow under the knees and a small rolled-up towel underneath the lower back to support it. Side sleepers should place a pillow between the knees. In this way, you should sleep so that there could be no any pressure on your spine that may be one of the main causes of chronic lower back pain.
Thus, if you follow the above mentioned methods, you can prevent yourself from chronic lower back pain.
