Lower Back Pain Relief in Apple Valley

Nagging low back pain is one of the most common ailments that sideline people from their daily activities. Such pain can be from anything and everything, from a long car ride to a pulled muscle to having a sedentary job.

At Lifeway Chiropractic and Wellness, our Doctors can help relieve lower back pain. In addition to providing chiropractic care, they also recommends the following:

Decompression

The decompression machine at our practice gently moves your spine toward its proper position. This process helps remove the pressure that pushes the discs in your spine out of place, which in turn prevents these discs from pressing against neighboring nerves. In many cases, creating negative pressure in your spinal discs helps decrease pain and inflammation in your body.

Heat and Ice

Our doctors may also recommend heat or ice for treating low back pain at home. If the condition is acute, then you should apply cold versus heat. But if it’s more chronic, then heat would be a good solution.

Movement

It might be tempting to avoid activity when you have lower back pain. However, the best thing you can do is actually keep your body moving. Let’s say, like many people, you sit at your desk for eight or more hours a day. It’s important to take breaks and move. If you’re at your desk, set a timer on your phone to remind you to get up, stretch and move. If you drive for a living, try to stop every couple of hours, get out and move a little bit.

Hydration

We all know how critical hydration is to maintain good health. Keeping yourself hydrated can also help reduce muscle spasm and muscle tightness.

Diet

Because a highly inflammatory diet can contribute to inflammation and pain, adopting a clean diet composed of low-inflammatory foods could help alleviate low back pain.
