Did you know back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work? It’s also a leading cause of disability worldwide.
Back pain can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term). It can either feel like a sudden, sharp pain, or a dull, constant ache. While acute back pain can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, chronic pain can last for months and often requires medical care to go away, while acute pain usually gets better on its own.
If you suffer from back pain, you know how debilitating it can be. How can you prevent back pain? Going to a chiropractor regularly can help reduce your pain and even get to the root of your issues, but there are also things you can do in between adjustments to keep pain away.
- Do gentle muscle stretching exercises at least 2-3 days per week.
- Fix your office space ergonomics, this includes adjusting your computer monitor, keyboard, and chair height.
