6 Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Lower Back

overhead hamstring stretchUnsurprisingly, back pain is one of the most common issues people experience worldwide, and it’s one of the top reasons individuals seek chiropractic care. Studies show that almost everyone will experience it at some point in their lives. The causes can vary—poor posture, lack of exercise, excess weight, improper lifting techniques, and even just the inevitable process of aging.

Fortunately, while it is common, back pain is also largely preventable.

Here are six easy ways to not only alleviate the discomfort but also maintain a healthy lower back:

  1. Get Adjusted: Regular chiropractic care can help keep your spine aligned and your nervous system healthy. At Complete Chiropractic Health, our doctors use various adjusting techniques to help patients enjoy optimal spinal health.
  2. Posture Matters: Poor posture can impose unnecessary strain on your lower back muscles, often leading to discomfort. Make sure you’re sitting and standing up straight. Invest in ergonomic chairs and desks that provide optimal support for your back, especially during prolonged periods of sitting.
  3. The Power of Exercise: Strengthen your core muscles, the natural defenders of your spine, through regular exercise. To target the core specifically, focus on activities such as planks, bridges, and bird dogs. Not to mention, general activities like walking, swimming, or yoga can enhance flexibility and minimize the occurrence of back pain.
  4. Watch Your Weight: Excess weight can do more than just affect your self-esteem. It can burden your lower back too. By eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, you can maintain a healthy weight, reducing the risk of developing lower back pain.
  5. Lift Wisely: Avoid bending at your waist when lifting heavy objects. Instead, bend your knees and keep your back straight. Remember, your legs are stronger than your back—use them!
  6. Stay on the Move: Keeping yourself active is crucial for your overall health and for preventing lower back pain. Include activities like swimming, cycling, or simple walking in your daily routine to keep your back muscles robust and flexible.
