You know how annoying it can be when that old guy tells the young guy what to do? It goes something like this, “you know what you oughta do is… “. In the case of back pain that old guy knows what he his talking about when he says you should take measures now while you are young to make sure you do not live out your golden years in pain. Regardless of your age, if you feel pain in your lower back it is screaming to you that something is wrong and needs to be corrected. It may be that, like most of us who experience back pain later in life, we were always using our backs incorrectly.
If you have pain because you sit a lot or drive a lot your spine may need to be decompressed occasionally to relieve the pressure causing your pain before a possible rupture, also referred to as a herniated disc. Once your disc ruptures your chances of living a pain free life dramatically declines. The most beneficial things you can do for a pain free back for the future is to occasionally decompress your spine and strengthen your core now. Most of us do nothing in daily life to strengthen the very muscles that hold our spines straight and tall. Our spinal structures are too important to our everyday life to ignore. We need to take care of it just like any other part of our body. We go to the dentist to take care of our teeth. We go to the gym to take care of our bodies. What about the structure that holds it all up? Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! At LumbarTrac™, we can provide you the tools to regularly decompress your spine and strengthen your core for a pain free life. Let us show you how. Never under estimate the difference in your future quality of life between living with and without pain. Now is the time to address it while it’s a tinge. If you will take care of your spine now it will take care of you for a long time.
