If you don’t want to have surgery for your back pain, there are a few other options to consider that can provide relief so that you can go about your daily activities, such as working and taking care of your family. When you speak with a chiropractor, your back will be examined to determine where it’s hurting and what could be causing the pain that you feel. Keep in mind that a few different treatment options might need to be tried before you find one that provides effective back pain relief.
Physical therapy is an option to consider that can strengthen your back while providing pain relief. There are different exercises that you can try as the same set might not work for you that works for someone else. The doctor will determine the best exercises to use depending on your symptoms and your pain level as well as the amount of movement that you can tolerate. Aerobic exercises and posture techniques may be included as part of the physical therapy.
Meditation is a back pain relief option you can consider as well. This option doesn’t involve medications and can often manage the emotional pain you might experience from back pain as well as the physical pain in your back. Changing your diet can sometimes help with back pain. You might need to introduce more vitamins into your diet in order to strengthen your back while eliminating a few other types of foods, such as sugars and trans fats.
Try to listen to what your body is telling you. If your back is limiting your ability to move, you should try to rest as much as you can. Avoid carrying heavy objects or several items at one time. Wear shoes that have the support that you need for your feet and your back. If you notice that an activity results in more back pain, then avoid doing this activity until you can get relief from your chiropractor.
