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.

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.

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.

How To Keep Your Back Healthy As You Age

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jul 24, 2019 12:05:17 PM

It happens to the best of us.

Our hair greys if we're lucky enough to keep it.

We're not quite as fast as we used to be.

It takes us a little longer than usual to remember things.

We age.

It's inevitable; our clocks never stop ticking, and we all get older.

In the 1960s the average American woman lived to be 73 with the average male making it to 66.

These days we are all living longer, with women making it to 82 and most men making it to the ripe old age of 76.

Since we're living longer, most people also want those extra years to be healthy and productive.

It helps to regularly visit a back pain doctor too.

Nobody wants to spend their last days withering away in a nursing home, a shell of their former selves.

So we're doing all we can to maintain our health so we can enjoy our golden years.

One of our most fragile body parts, and the one that typically shows its age first is our backs.

As a collection of bones, discs, and muscles that keep us upright and moving, when our back is bad, it affects our entire bodies.

To maximize our chances of remaining active and mobile in our old age, there are a few things we should do to keep our backs healthy.

We'll talk about them below.

Nashville Chiropractor Gives Tips On How To Naturally Reduce Your Back Pain

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jun 24, 2019 3:55:48 PM

Back pain is a widespread problem, causing more disability worldwide than any other condition.

So, if you're experiencing back pain, you're not alone.

More than 80% of adults will experience some type of back pain at least once in their lives.

Here are 5 common causes of back pain.

Your back muscles and spine support most of your body's weight, so when you have back pain, it can affect your entire body.

Everyday movements like walking, running, sitting, and standing can be difficult if you're experiencing any pain in your back.

There are over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen that you can take to help ease the pain.

Unfortunately, there is no "one size fits all" approach to alleviating back pain.

For many people, it takes a lot of trial and error to figure out what works best for them.

That could mean testing many different kinds of pain medications.

For people who don't want to put their body through the side effects that come with pain medications, there are natural remedies you can try.

In the article below, we will discuss some of the natural remedies for back pain that people have the most success with.

5 Common Causes Of Back Pain - Get The Facts & Treatment Options

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jun 3, 2019 4:12:16 PM

If you suffer from back pain, you are hardly alone.

Four out of every five adults experience the symptoms of back pain at least once in their lifetime.

If you're the one in five, who doesn't, congratulations.

For the rest of us, though, we might be left wondering why.

It's because the back is a complex structure that is made up of 33 vertebrae, over 30 muscles, numerous ligaments, several joints, and intervertebral discs.

All of these structures have to function together to help you move and provide a stable foundation for your body.

If just one of the structures is injured or out of place, it can cause significant discomfort.

Fortunately, most people recover from back pain without ever realizing what happened.

When the pain lingers, though, discovering the underlying source of the pain can help guide your treatment.

Then, understanding what causes back pain is key to keeping it from coming back.

If you are experiencing persistent back pain, it's important to visit back pain doctors

In the article below, we'll look at five of the most common causes of back pain.
