Eliminating Back Discomfort

Being plagued by the inability to sleep, experiencing stiffness, or having difficulty with activities that we love, are often indicators of back issues. 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 we seek out the proper care as soon as possible to prevent other issues and to improve our quality of life.

Common Causes of Back Pain or Discomfort:

  • Poor Posture
  • Weak Core Muscles
  • Poor Mechanics
  • Weak Gluteal Muscles
  • Degeneration

The ‘Trickle-Down’ Effect

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 dysfunction. As your dysfunction increases, you will increase your pain level. This is why it’s critical to handle any discomfort right away.
