Do you suffer from an aching back? For some, this can be a slight nagging ache, and others a sharp crippling pain. Whichever category you fall into, back pain can keep you down and out from fully enjoying life’s activities. Whether it stops you from performing well at work, or you have to think twice about bending down to play with your children, back pain can be a real pain. However, you are not alone. Here are some interesting facts on back pain: 4 Back pain is the number one disability for those under age 45. 4 In the United States of America alone, there are an expected 31 million people with lower back pain at any given time. 4 Back pain runs second, after only the common cold, as the top reason for visiting a healthcare provider in the United States. 4 Experts place the likelihood of any person to experience some type of back problem in their lifetime at about 80%. That’s four out of every five people! 4 Around 30 to 40 percent of all workplace absences are due to back pain. 4 Approximately one quarter of U.S. adults reported having low back pain lasting at least one whole day in the past three months, and 7.6%

reported at least one episode of severe acute low back pain within a one-year period. 4 More than two-thirds of back strains are caused by lifting and other exertions like pulling and pushing. 4 Mostcasesofbackpainaremechanical—meaning theyareNOTcaused by serious conditions, such as infection, fracture or cancer.

Here are a few tips that are surprisingly effective at preventing back pain and keeping it from returning: 1. Get more exercise. If your back is hurting, you may think the best way to get relief is to rest. Studies show that frequent changes in position and regular physical activity can actually help ease inflammation and muscle tension faster in the back. 2. Maintain a healthy weight. Extra pounds, especially in your midsection, can make back pain worse by shifting your center of gravity and putting strain on your lower back. Staying within 10 pounds of your ideal weight may help control back pain as well as all the other health benefits.  3. Quit smoking. Nicotine in smoke, restricts the flow of nutrient-containing blood to spinal discs, so smokers are especially vulnerable to back pain.  4.Sleepingposition. Ifyou’reprone tobackpain, talkwithourcliniciansabout thebestsleepingposition.What ismost important is tobe inacomfortable position that you can sleep in to achieve the most rest. Sleeping on your side with your knees pulled up slightly toward your chest with a pillow between the knees is best during the first 15-30 minutes in bed. Prefer to sleep on your back? Put one pillow under your knees and another under your lower back. Try to avoid sleeping on your front. 5. Improve your posture. Find a good chair to sit on. Avoid soft couches or chairs that put you in a slouched position. Find a chair that will allow you to keep your feet flat on the floor when you sit. With standing, try to alternateyourpositionsandwalkaround ifpossible.Haveone foot forward when standing and switch this every 10 minutes.

and effective in treating chronic neck and back pain caused by bulging and herniated discs. Over time, pressure causes spinal discs to compress, bulge and even herniate. This pressure builds on the nerves in the spinal column, which leads to sometimes debilitating back pain. Spinal decompression is used to relieve pressure on pinched nerves in the spinal column, which are often caused by bulging or herniated discs. By creating negative pressure, spinal decompression draws in bulging and herniated discs, allowing them to heal. What do we use it for? Spinal decompression is especially effective for the treatment of low back pain due to bulging or herniated discs. It also can relieve neck pain and symptoms of sciatica.
