El Paso, TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez examines good health and wellness.

Most individuals will experience neck or back pain at some time in their own own lives. Neck pain and back are among the leading causes of disability worldwide, along with the number of cases is increasing. Some factors behind this are increased usage of cellular devices bad position, and unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Though it’s not necessarily possible to stop neck and back pain, you will find steps individuals can take to help decrease the chance it is going to occur.

Why good posture?

 

One of the most important approaches to ensure your spine stays healthy would be to keep good posture. A healthy back has three natural curves— an external curve at the upper back an inward curve at the neck, and an inward curve at the low back. Proper bearing helps maintain these curves that are natural and puts minimal pressure in your joints. Defective bearing does the opposite. It may stress or pull muscles, causing pain and musculoskeletal imbalances in the back, neck, and extremities. Some typical postural blunders rounding your shoulders are positioning your face too much forward, and slouching so you lose the normal curve in the lower back.

Cellular Devices & Neck Pain

 

 

The increasing use of cellular devices can bring about inferior spine health, influencing our posture and body mechanics in ways that are unhealthy. Kenneth K. Hansraj, MD, the Chief of Spine Surgery at New York Spine Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine, created a computer model of the cervical spine that demonstrated how use of mobile devices directly contributes to neck pull. In an article published in Surgical Technology International, Dr. Hansraj, MD, revealed that neck pull increases as the forward angle of the head increases, as it does when you look down at your cell phone or tablet. As you lean your head, you round another aspect of poor position, your shoulders. All this surplus strain creates additional wear and tear on the structures of the neck, upper spine and back, and can result in spinal degeneration that could need surgery.

Body Mechanics & Prevention Tips

 

Good posture and placement is particularly important when you’re bending over, squatting, and when you are lifting things. When lifting boxes or alternative things you should avoid twisting your body. But it also is crucial to keep good posture while standing and sitting. It really is a lot more crucial that you develop a good ergonomic working arrangement to safeguard your spine with people spending increasing quantities of time at work,. Over time, poor sitting posture and workplace ergonomics can damage spinal structures and contribute to persistent or persistent back and neck pain.

Sleep Time

 

One other place people spend a sizable percentage of the time is in bed. That makes it vital to truly have a mattress that enables you to have a supporting and restful slumber. The identical natural spinal alignment you have is maintained by a mattress that is good when standing and will help prevent back pain.

Eat Well & Exercise Frequently

The diet and exercise choices you make might assist you to protect your back. Exercise can help prevent back pain and neck pain by strengthening the muscles supporting your vertebrae. Strength training, flexibility training, and aerobic exercise are part of a healthy exercise routine, and every type of exercise contributes to spinal health. Great nutrition also is crucial to helping us reach our optimum well-being and feel our best. A nutritious diet along with exercise also assist you to keep a healthier weight, that is just another approach to simply help make sure your back is not overstrained.

 

Smoking, Your Brain, Chronic Back Pain & Bone Health

 

Another lifestyle alternative that’s damaging to spine health is cigarette smoking. Researchers from Northwestern University conducted a study demonstrating that smokers are three times more likely than nonsmokers to develop chronic back pain. “Smoking affects the brain,” according to scientist Bogdan Petre, who headed the study, which was published on the internet in the journal Human Brain Mapping. “We found that it appears to make people less resilient to an episode of pain and changes the way the brain responds to back pain.”

Smoking also reduces bone density, which increases the risk for osteoporosis along with other degenerative spine conditions, and it can reduce the success of spinal fusion. People who are facing fusion or any back surgery should make every endeavor to avoid smoking. The associated dangers will reduce and raise the probability of an effective spinal fusion surgery.
