Are You Having Back Pain?

Most likely if you googled “ back doctor chiropractor” or “Boulder chiropractor” you are having some back issue. Back pain can be debilitating and frustrating. Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain. Back pain is the sixth most costly condition in the United States. When your back is hurting it is very hard to do your job or any of your daily activities, including the things you love. We would love to help you find back pain relief and get you back to doing the things you love so that you can enjoy life again. Here are some at home tips to try if you are experiencing back pain:

     1. Apply heat to the area

Heat can relax the muscles that are spasming and causing the pain. Heat also brings nutrients to the area to help heal the damage faster. Have you ever wondered why your body brings heat and inflammation to an area you have hurt? This is because your body is trying to heal itself. 

     2. Movement

Sometimes the last thing you want to do is move when you have intense back pain. However, your body needs to get movement into your spine in order to start correcting the problem. Gentle stretching and movement will actually help reduce the pain.  Click here to see some easy movements you can do when your back is causing you a lot of pain.

How Do Chiropractors Help Back Pain?

Most people do not get enough movement in their spine. This can lead to pain and discomfort. Chiropractors are experts in getting movement into the spine. This is why chiropractic is so effective in treating back pain. 

How Long Should You Have Pain Until You See A Chiropractor?

If you have been having pain for longer than a couple of days you should definitely call a chiropractor. Most people think that the pain will just go away on its own, but that is a mistake. Yes, sometimes the pain will go away, but if you don’t get to the root of the problem, the pain will just come back. The biggest myth about pain is that there is only a problem when you feel it. The truth is, pain is just a warning sign that something is wrong. Most of the time pain will come and go, but can get worse and worse if you do not address it. The smartest thing to do is get help sooner rather than later. This will help you feel better faster and keep you feeling better longer.
