People joke about back pain being an old person's problem, but most of the world, including young adults, experience chronic back pain in 2022. Low back pain (LBP) is a widespread pain disorder and a significant public health problem. If that sends a shiver down your spine, stick around as we discuss ways to counter this painful problem with straightforward solutions.
Improve Your Posture
If your posture is good, your vertebrae are perfectly aligned, protecting the intricate pieces of your spine to keep them healthy and functioning. Bad posture strains your back and can change the architecture of your spine. Avoid rounding your shoulders, slouching, or bending sideways when standing.
Increasing Calcium and Vitamin D intake
Calcium and vitamin D deficiency leads to chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system. Vitamin D deficiency is especially prevalent in post-menopausal people, increasing their susceptibility to bone diseases like osteoporosis.
How long have you been sitting? We live incredibly fast-paced lives and are glued to our desks constantly, which has a drastic impact on our muscles. So, stretch! Stretching improves your flexibility and range of motion, preventing injury and pain while enhancing your mood. Some simple stretches to relieve LBP are cat-cow stretch, pelvic tilt, etc.
Our bodies give us signals about our health every day. Back pain is one of them. Tuning in and self-checks help you to listen to your body. Pay attention to your diet and posture, stretch, and you will stand tall in no time.
