Most people will find them self in serious neck or low back pain in their life, and most people wonder how to self manage it.
The problem is, once you have had an injury for 4-6weeks, then it changes from something that has happened to you, to become a part of who you are.
Your body will to try adapt around your pain, but really its best to avoid it in the first place.
A recent study found that Healthy Lifestyle Behaviour (HLB) dramatically reduced low back pain and neck pain, by preventing it in the first place!
The determinants for HLB were: not smoking, drinking alcohol responsibly and participating in regular exercise.
If you already don’t smoke, already use alcohol irresponsibly, but still have back or neck pain, then guess what you are missing? – a good variety of healthy movement!
Chiropractors help your body and your joints to move in ways that they have been deprived of.
Chiropractic can get you started on path to a healthier lifestyle and preventing pain syndromes.
Think about it this way – If you have a nutrient deficiency, like iron, magnesium, B-vitamins, etc…, you take a supplement in the short term, while you change your diet to hopefully get enough from natural sources.
Chiropractic can give you a specific dose of movement into a joint that is unhealthy, from a lack of variety in movement. Just like a Vitamin supplement can help you with a deficiency. Chiropractors will also give you specifically chosen self management strategies to decrease the likelihood of re-injury
Chiropractic can help to manage pain, rehabilitate weakness, and look after you in the long run to help you avoid movement deficiency problems.
