If you live in the Charlotte area and are suffering from chronic pain in your neck and back, we highly recommend that you come into our office for a visit. One of our Charlotte chiropractors can assess the damage with an X-ray and in-person consultation. But if you’re skeptical about chiropractic care, we understand. A lot of people believe that it’s not a valid way to treat a condition, whether it’s pain or something else. In that case, you may be interested in our free 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Holly. (What do you have to lose, right?)
Either way, we’re all about providing value to help people achieve better health overall. Read on for some expert tips on how to cure back pain from Charlotte chiropractor and leader of Queen City Health Center, Dr. Holly Clemens.
Tip #1: Change your diet. You may be wondering what your diet has to do with back pain. How in the world can the foods you put into your stomach affect how your back feels? Believe it or not, most health issues start in the gut. The foods you eat can contribute to inflammation in the body, which often manifests as pain or chronic illness. Sugar is the #1 culprit when ti comes to inflammation, and reducing or even eliminating it from your diet, and detoxifying your body’s internal organs—even for just 30 days—and reduce or eliminate the problem.
Tip #2: Exercise. Focus on core exercises that will help to build strength in your back and improve your posture. But take it slow and be careful! You don’t want to pull a muscle and experience even more pain the process.
Tip #3: Sit up straight. More and more people in our society are suffering from text-neck syndrome. As a Charlotte chiropractor, I see it all the time in patients who come into my office. If your back and neck are hurting, it could be from poor posture related to the use of smartphones and computers every day. If you sit at a desk for long periods during the week, read this post to learn how to sit the right way so you don’t injure yourself.
Tip #4: Get adjusted! We mentioned this already, but it’s worth repeating. Our Charlotte chiropractors can help you pinpoint the problem that’s causing your back pain and put together a targeted care plan to eliminate it through regular spinal manipulation and other lifestyle changes. Our holistic approach to chiropractic care is highly effective at treating a variety of conditions and helping you get off medications, feel better, and achieve an overall better quality of life.
