3 Things That Might be Causing You Back Pain
If you are suffering with back pain, there might be some things that are aggravating it more. Always make sure you check with your GP if you are concerned about your health.
1) Good Foot Wear
As much as we love the latest trends and high heels, sometimes they are not the best if there is a weakness in our backs. Shoes with little to no support or cushion will cause excess strain on our backs and if the back is not aligned, the hips and knees can also become a problem. Try buying shoes with good support and cushion. Without naming certain brands we know of some who promote good support so opt for those.
2) Sleeping Positions
Sleeping can be a problem when you are suffering from back pain. So try laying on your side and placing a cushion between your knees, it takes some of the pressure off your lower back and can make bed time a little more enjoyable. Also sleeping on your stomach is not advised due to the unnatural position of the spine.
Sitting for too long I’m sure you are aware makes you stiff and much harder to move. We’ve all seen that poor person having to be hoisted up from a chair because their back has ceased up. So try to get mobile every 15-20 minutes to avoid the muscles going cold and ceasing up. Sit with your back nice and straight, shoulders back, and your feet flat on the floor. Crossing your legs is also not advisable.
Scalp Acupuncture and Osteopathy
Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on the subtle mechanics of the whole body. It is based on the philosophy that all parts of the body function together in an integrated way. Osteopathy aims to treat and strengthen all the mobile structures of the body, whether structural (joints, muscles and spine), visceral (organs) or cranium (head). Combined with the use of Scalp Acupuncture which is exceptional for its fast effects – it is not uncommon for a client to notice an improvement after the first treatment. These positive responses can continue for a couple of days, but to obtain the best results, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment.
