Are you waking up with lower back pain? Have you had recurring back soreness for more than a few months? Is it hard to sit at your desk and work because of constant, nagging discomfort?

Living like this day in and day out is not how we were meant to live. Continue reading and discover what you can do about it!
The main reason for your aches and pains nowadays is our lifestyle. Sitting in front of the computer all day and lack of proper exercise are the main causes. Let me explain.
Our body is meant to move. When we move or exercise, our body will pump fluids into the discs and the discs stay healthy and in place. When the spine is not moving well, it pinches the nerves even more. This is where Chiropractic comes in.
The goal of Chiropractic is to get your whole body moving well. When the back moves well, the joints open up more and the nerve coming out has more room. So we need to take the pressure off of the nerves and the pain will subside.
The most important part in treating back pain is to get the spine moving better and to relief the pressure on the nerve. Once that happens the pain will subside and you will start to feel better.
Most of our patients say they do not feel so stiff anymore, they wake up without pain in the morning and they are able to exercise again. When you have a good Chiropractor it will not take long to get you well.
Most people start to feel better right after the first treatment keep getting better as we go along with the treatment. You can be one of them. Just click the link right now to set up your first appointment with us.
The most common causes of back pain are a sedentary lifestyle, postural problems, such as slouching low in a chair or on the couch, and injuries. Often people lift something and twist at the same time or they get injured during their sports activities.
You should be worried if you transition from having pain to more serious symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and weakness. This usually means that the nerve is either compressed or very irritated.
The best sleeping position for people with lower back pain is to sleep on their back, with one pillow below their head and the other underneath their knees. This will be the best for optimal spinal alignment.
If you are a side sleeper you should sleep with a pillow in between your knees. That will align your lower back and pelvis and give you some pain relief as well.
