Back Discomfort Making it Difficult to Complete Your Daily Routine?

Back discomfort can be debilitating no matter what your walk of life.  People living with back pain are often plagued by the inability to sleep, stiffness or difficulty with activities that they love.  These may include running or hiking, gardening, walking the dog or playing with their grandchildren. Back pain is something that can affect anyone; they may be young athletes, active parents or older adults.

Like many conditions, when we have pain or discomfort in one area of the body, if we don’t handle it, it can start impacting another area of the body.  Back pain is no different. Back problems can make it difficult for you to complete your daily routine whether that be going to the gym or just walking around the house to get various chores done. If you let this condition decrease your activity level, you are increasing your level of dysfunction.   As your dysfunction increases, you will increase your pain level.  This is a vicious cycle.

Pain is a signal that something is wrong and often back pain is a signal of issues up and down the chain. Your spine connects your upper body and your lower body so it is important that you seek out the proper care to prevent other issues and so you can get back to enjoying the family cook-outs, your favorite exercise and dance classes, as well as simply bending over to tie your shoes without any pain or discomfort.
