Back pain

Back pain is a common and often overlooked problem.

80% of French people suffer from back pain regularly.

31% say their pain is only partially relieved

64% are no longer looking for a solution and are waiting for the pain to pass by itself

Sedentary lifestyle and back problems:

The main cause of back problems is a sedentary lifestyle. Sitting at a desk all day, even if you move around during work hours, can be bad for your health!

As new technologies, such as computers and tablets, become more and more popular in professional settings, it is important for professionals to learn how they affect us when they are misused or not considered in their ergonomic design.

Many people give up sports activities to focus more on their screens (phone, computer/TV screen).

The modern world is accelerating at such a pace that it is becoming difficult for many of us to maintain an active lifestyle.

However, sports activities allow a healthy functioning of our body by strengthening almost all body functions such as blood circulation or heart protection, stress reduction among others, but also to enjoy the benefits that come with it, such as increased energy levels and mental clarity. All the things you need to stay healthy!

Advice: 

We all know that exercise is good for the body, but did you also know that it can make your joints more mobile? Regular physical activity, such as walking 20 minutes a day and playing sports regularly, promotes better joint movement and helps maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The best way to do this is to consult an expert (sports coach and chiropractor) who will be able to make specific recommendations on what is best for each individual!

You can include exercises designed specifically for you to improve your back health along with other types of exercises such as stretching - this will help promote healing or muscle strengthening while ensuring that joints remain mobile.

 

Occupational accidents and back problems:

Occupational injuries can occur either as a result of a work-related accident (trauma) or as a result of repetitive tasks such as material handling, prolonged sitting in front of a computer and frequent movements. Without adequate follow-up by a chiropractor to reduce the physical stress related to these activities or good ergonomic practices adapted to workstations, it is almost impossible for the body not to develop physical pain in the medium to long term. An ailment that affects 80% of us as we age.

But prevention must become an objective among others, such as a healthy diet, regular physical exercise, etc...

Objectively, work accidents can be avoided by reducing physical stress at work, adapting your space with specific furniture and ergonomic design solutions, providing postural advice and adapted measures that will prevent long-term health problems, because our postures change over time depending on what is comfortable.

 

Back pain and bad posture, trauma and micro-trauma:

The way we use our backs is often the cause of our pain. Everyday actions such as standing, sitting for long periods of time and even sleeping can cause abnormal activity in the body, especially if you try to do these routines with poor posture!

And then there are the microtraumas: they are due largely or entirely to inappropriate movements, such as carrying heavy objects without putting them down properly or moving from one position to another without taking enough time to recover between exercises, moving freely while carrying a bag or other bag throwing you off balance.....because, let's be honest, who has perfect balance 24/7?

 

Optimal health:

As technology becomes an increasingly important part of our days, it is crucial that we find ways to keep ourselves healthy by reducing screen time.

Chiropractic can help you lead an active life by helping your body stay healthy and pain free. As a chiropractor we work with you individually to develop an exercise program that fits your pace, desire, need and helps you move throughout the day.

We evaluate your posture, adjust your nervous system and advise you on how to improve it by making small changes in your daily life.

Even if you only have 10 minutes a day, small actions can make a big difference if done regularly!

We understand how difficult it can be to find time for yourself, especially if you have a hectic work or family life, so you can make an appointment directly with one of our 4 chiropractors Monday through Saturday at a time that is convenient for you.
