Back pain is one of the most common complaints for adults.

If you’ve been asking yourself, “Why does my back hurt?” here are 10 possible answers.

 

Did you know that about 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives?

2020 was the year that most of us started working from home…and your back probably paid the price.

Here’s how to set up an ergonomic workspace anywhere that will help—not hurt—your body.

 

This year has brought a lot of changes into our lives. Not only are we all getting accustomed to wearing masks everywhere, many have switched to working remotely. And while you probably enjoy skipping the commute and wearing pajamas to work, we’ve noticed that a lot of home “offices” aren’t exactly ergonomic. 

Prior to the pandemic, if you worked from an office, you probably had everything set up the way you like it: a comfy chair, computer at the perfect height, and maybe even a footrest. Now? Some of you have had to make do with a TV dinner tray on the couch. 

What’s the good news? With only a few handy hacks, you can have an ergonomic workspace that will alleviate your “Self Isolation Syndrome” pains. Read on for the top five areas that are most important to your chiropractic health and what you can do to avoid potential injury or discomfort.

Want to get a better night’s sleep?

As it turns out, it’s not always about finding the best mattress for back pain.

 

People often ask about the best mattress for back pain, but your mattress isn’t the only thing that could be keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep.

Back pain after sleeping is most likely caused by improper spinal alignment, which can itself be caused by a number of factors (or a combination of them): your pillow, your sleeping position, and yes, your mattress.

As your Oviedo chiropractor, it’s important that you get enough sleep to be restored and refreshed when you wake in the morning, but that can’t happen if you’re not sleeping correctly.

Popping and locking should only happen on the dance floor.

If you’re suffering from TMJ, a chiropractor can help!

 

Can you name the most used joint in the human body? It’s not your knee or your wrist…it’s your jaw!

Your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is a marvelous collection of bones, muscles, and disc tissue that (normally) work together to allow painless freedom of movement in the jaw. Sometimes, however, this system is thrown out of whack and that’s when the discomfort of TMJ rears its ugly head.

Fortunately there’s a way to stop TMJ disorders in their tracks.

In this article, we’ll talk about what TMJ is, why it occurs, and what your chiropractor can do to help.

Not necessarily.

Don’t get used to lower back pain!

Find out how flexion distraction therapy can help.

 

Lower back pain is extremely common here in America. Other than upper respiratory infections, back pain is the most common reason for visiting a doctor.
