If you’re suffering back pain you may be tempted to try just about anything to get rid of it. The lengths that some people go to to get relief from their back pain often surprises us. Chiropractors who are members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) shared some very interesting ‘cures’ people suffering back pain had tried including, drinking ones own urine and applying WD40! Neither of which our chiropractors recommend by the way.
For many what seems like the most obvious ‘cure’ is to rest. However, in most instances of back pain this is not something our chiropractors would recommend you do. Staying mobile and taking moderate activity is in the long term a better option.
With back pain affecting increasing numbers of people we as chiropractors in a busy chiropractic clinic in Newcastle under Lyme cannot recommend enough that people learn to take great care of their spine. Taking moderate levels of exercise is essential to build and maintain strength in the spine and improves posture which in turn helps protect you from back pain.
If you are suffering back pain, chiropractic offers a safe and effective treatment. Our experienced team of chiropractors at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic will not only treat you but will offer you advice to keep your back safe in the future.
