Most people think that having a healthy back is matter of luck, a matter of avoiding accidental injury and bending a lifting properly. Whilst these things certainly help there are three things that research has shown to be the most effective way of treating and preventing back pain.
Firstly, and most importantly, keeping fit and active has the biggest impact on preventing back problems. Initially, a few days rest may help a bad back but getting active early on is key to a full recovery. Once your back is better it is important to maintain levels of activity and there are certain simple exercises that you can do at home. These exercises can also prevent back pain coming on in the first place.
The second thing that will help keep your back in tip top condition is getting treatment sooner rather than later. If back problems are not clearing up or keep coming and going it may be a sign that that the condition is slowly worsening and this can lead to chronic, ongoing pain.
The third solution to keep your back healthy is regular preventative check-ups. Back problems come on because the spinal joints gradually stiffen over time, causing reduced movement, inflammation and pain. We can check for the early signs of spinal stiffness and our treatment can unlock the stiff joints and prevent the pain from coming on in the first place.
