Sleeping Like This Will Provide Relief From Back And Neck Pain

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Feb 21, 2020 10:13:49 AM

Back and/or neck pain can have a huge impact on your daily life.

Because we are constantly turning and moving our necks, and we can't really do anything without using our backs, the pain isn't just unpleasant, it can be debilitating.

Alone, neck and back pain is bad enough.

But neck and back pain together is almost unbearable.

There are several causes for neck and back pain, and a lot of them are related to lifestyle choices.

Sure, we can get injured in a car accident, playing sports, or some other way, but the pain usually comes down to how we live our lives.

Bad posture, being overweight and obese, and even stress can cause us to have pain in our neck and backs.

One of the biggest causes of back and neck pain is sleeping the wrong way.

Your sleep position has a significant impact on how your back and neck feel when you wake up in the morning.

Sometimes it's even out of our control. You can fall asleep one way, and wake up sore in a completely different position.

If you're constantly experiencing this, you should contact a chiropractor for neck pain

We have full control over how we fall asleep, though, and that's a good start.

So, what are the best sleeping positions for back and neck pain?

In the article below, we'll discuss five positions that will help you wake up feeling refreshed, and not in pain.

How To Treat Back Pain Without Drugs

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Feb 14, 2020 10:02:06 AM

Anyone that has dealt with back pain knows how miserable it can be.

Whether you have chronic back pain, back spasms, recurring pain, or an injury, back pain can sideline you from work and your daily activities.

Our Nashville Chiropractor gives tips on how to naturally reduce your back pain.

Unfortunately, back pain is pretty common, so if you aren't dealing with it right now, you either already have or you will at some point.

Low back pain is responsible for 2.6 million visits to the E.R. every year and is the leading cause of disability worldwide.

Although there has been extensive research and money put into finding cures for back pain, many people still receive unnecessary treatments and drugs.

Instead of being encouraged to stay active, which has been proven to be an effective treatment, patients are often encouraged to rest and prescribed opioids for the pain.

Because of the laundry list of side effects, and the possibility for addiction, many people want to avoid opioids.

Fortunately, there are many alternative treatments for back pain, many of which can be performed in the comfort of your own home.

In the article below, we'll discuss several of those treatments.

Anti-Inflammatory Foods You Should Include In Your Diet

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Feb 7, 2020 10:01:27 AM

Like most things in life, inflammation can be good and bad.

On the one hand, inflammation helps your body defend itself from infection and injury.

On the other hand, chronic inflammation can lead to weight gain and can be a contributing factor in many diseases.

Inflammation is the reaction of your immune system to irritation, injury, or infection.

It's a normal response and a natural part of healing.

The key is to not let chronic inflammation take a toll on your body and your health.

Following an anti-inflammatory diet is a great way to counter some of the chronic inflammation that can stem from a not-so-healthy lifestyle.

A proper diet along with regular chiropractic care can greatly improve your health.

If you feel like chronic inflammation is starting to take a toll on your health, the foods we talk about below are all nutritious and will fit perfectly into an anti-inflammatory diet.

Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jan 30, 2020 11:22:55 AM

Sciatica is the name given to pain caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve.

Anything that irritates this nerve can cause pain, ranging from mild to severe.

Sciatica is usually caused by a compressed nerve in the lower spine.

Sciatica is often confused with general back pain, but sciatica isn't limited to just the back.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the entire human body, running from the lower back, through the buttocks, and down the legs, ending just below the knee.

The nerve controls several muscles in the lower legs and supplies sensation to the skin of the foot and the majority of your lower leg.

Sciatica is not a condition, but rather a symptom of another problem involving the sciatic nerve.

Experts estimate that up to 40% of people will experience sciatica at least once in their life.

Of so many people are at risk of experiencing sciatica, what are the best treatment options?

One of the most effective treatments is from a chiropractor.

In the article below, we will discuss sciatica and how chiropractic care can help ease your pain.
