Don’t Start 2018 With Back Pain. 5 Simple Tips For Prevention

 

Don't start the 2018 New Year with back pain. Here are some things you can do to prevent it, because, as we all know, prevention is much easier than cure!

  1. First thing every morning, some gentle stretching for the back and for the hamstring muscles. Tight hamstrings can often lead to back problems (Very common in runners and footballers)
  2. Avoid poor posture, both sitting (slumping on a couch or in a car seat, leaning forward at a desk) and when standing (rounded shoulders, standing with most of your weight through one leg)
  3. Do some kind of gentle exercise to strengthen your core muscles (they work back and front) Yoga and Pilates are good examples, so is swimming with proper form.
  4. Take care when lifting even light objects. Many people injure themselves moving shopping from their trolleys into the boot of their cars. Lift correctly, back straight, knees bent, and move your feet to place the object down (don't stretch) know the rules.
  5. Regular gentle exercise such as walking, to keep the joints moving and the blood circulating. Many injuries happen because of poorly perfused (warmed up) muscles and stiff, underused joints.

If you follow these simple rules, you are much less likely to have back pain in the future. You don't have to do it all at once, try to incorporate something new every day, and it is unlikely that you will need my services as an osteopath to correct anything.

If you do require my services, call me on 024-7722-0599 (during office hours) and I will be glad to advise you on the best course of action to alleviate your painful back or other painful joint problem.

Back Pain, is yours like this?

Yback pain#1our back pain can really ruin your day, week, month or even year! Surprisingly it's not uncommon for first time client to tell me they've had their pain for years! Especially when most back pain can be managed or even eliminated with the correct treatment. Don't live on pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs when there are options to treating your back pain more efficiently and permanently.

If you wake up in the morning and have to think before you move, if you get out of bed as though your twenty years older than you actually are and wish you could sleep for another few hours just to get a bit more energy to start the day, then listen up, things can change. If you have to grunt your way through the day because of your pain and have to think first before moving quickly (in case that pain shoots through you like you've just been tazered!), then help is at hand. If you dread having to bend down to pick that bottle of milk from the fridge door in case your back locks up like you've been kicked by a mule, then I have good news for you. If you fear going out for a night out with friends and are worried that they might mistake your back pain for looking for sympathy because they don't understand how bad this actually feels (does anybody?), then there is something you can do. I'll HowsLifeexplain…

Most back pain is incorrectly diagnosed and therefore you end up with a completely ineffective treatment that at best takes the edge off the pain for a short time, or at worst does nothing (but you still keep doing it because..?) It may be that you have received incorrect treatment in the past and have got so fed up with some of the hogwash that you have been told that you now manage your back pain by yourself, living on pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are only meant to be given short-term and should never be taken as a cure (and indeed can be dangerous if done so)

I use a combination of muscle stretching and joint mobilising techniques and occasionally a little gentle electrotherapy with some massage to get you back in good health again. With osteopathy and the other techniques I employ to treat back pain, I can have you waking up in the morning and getting out of bed like you want to take on the day. You'll feel full of energy and be wanting to take on new challenges (instead of shying away from anything new) You'll look forward to engaging in new activities, sports or hobbies that would have only filled you with dread a few weeks before. You will be happy to help others, you'll be enthusiastic at work, at play, and you'll be going to bed at night with energy to spare and looking forward to what new adventures tomorrow may bring.Closeup portrait of a joyful young couple on holiday having fun against sky
