Back pain is nasty. It is obviously painful and comes in many different shapes and sizes. It can ruin your day, your work and your life. When faced with back pain so many of us will turn to medicine, we’ll turn to painkillers.
Painkillers are often effective at reducing your pain but not always and they come with negative side-effects almost always.
There is another way though. As leading Hounslow Chiropractors we’re always advising our patients on alternative methods to beat back pain.
It’s all about prevention
That’s right, prevention. The most effective painkiller is not to have the pain in the first places. There are so many causes of back pain that will be too much to list here but here are a few tips;
- Stay hydrated
- Strengthen core muscles
- Exercise and stretch
- Practice good posture
Sometimes prevention isn’t enough; sometimes you can still suffer from back pain. Maybe through a lapse in concentration or just purely because of how much you work your back.
When that happens, you can always come see us or any chiropractor to use their expert knowledge to help you through your problems.
