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.
If conservative lifestyle changes are not resulting in relief of your pain, it may be time to seek an evaluation with the Spine Center of DuPage Medical Group. You may be surprised to learn that only 5% of Spine Center patients need surgery to correct their condition. Call 630−967−2225 to learn about your options and find best spine specialist for you.
