Learn How to Relieve Nag­ging Low­er Back Pain

Your body may be telling you that it’s time to con­sid­er mak­ing changes in your every­day rou­tine to pre­serve your spine health. Edu­cate your­self on sim­ple lifestyle mod­i­fi­ca­tions such as pil­low choice and opti­mal sleep­ing posi­tions, work­sta­tion point­ers and more com­fort­able dri­ving pos­ture so you can begin to see a dif­fer­ence in your pain lev­els. In addi­tion to tried and true approach­es such as weight loss and smok­ing ces­sa­tion, you can reclaim func­tion and range of motion by avoid­ing cer­tain move­ments at the wrong time of the day and using light exer­cise to ease the inflam­ma­tion that leads to chron­ic pain.
