Mums, Don’t Keep Mum!
It seems that everywhere we look, someone we know has back pain. Whether you work at home taking care of your family, spend long days at the office (or both!), back pain has become so common, it now affects 4 out of 5 adults around the world! Even our growing kids and teens complain of neck and back ache on a regular basis. Like us, they too have poor posture from what seems like endless tech-stress.
Getting rid of back pain is easy, right? Just apply some ointments and balms, go for a massage, or take another pain-killer. Pain is now gone…at least for a few hours. Simply put, if you want to get rid of your back pain, first find out why you have it and understand what it is doing to you. Seek out the source and get your answers, don’t just cover up the symptoms.
As a Chiropractor, I get it. Life is busy! We work too hard, sit too long, and move too little leaving us stressed, in pain, and out of shape. Moms, with everything going on each day, it’s hard to find even a little bit of ‘down-time’ to catch up, let alone take care of yourself, but remember, if you don’t take care of yourself first, you won’t be able to take care of others either.
Everyone knows that we need good posture. Healthy spines power healthy bodies. Your spine is designed to help your body balance, bend, lift, twist, and move. Your spine also protects your precious spinal cord and gentle nerves, which control every function of your body. Sitting too much at the office, taking care of the home and family, stuck driving in traffic jams every single day ALL place undue stress on your back and body that it just wasn’t meant to handle. Ongoing stress can lead to pain and other symptoms from misalignment, compression, and even early signs of degeneration!
Don’t give pain the power to hold you back from living life your way. In fact, life truly begins when pain ends. It’s time you take back what’s yours!
