Ignoring your back pain is the worst thing you can do
Humans have an incredible capacity to live with pain, especially the kind that accrues slowly over time like the back pain and dysfunction related to our job. We can ignore it, or worse mask it, and move on with our daily activities; this approach sets us up for a lot of pain and degeneration in the future, but these considerations are subjugated to the importance of the task in front of you. It is amazing how we will let spinal flexibility, resilience, stability and posture fly out the window just because we have to get the job done. At Holmes Chiropractic, we believe that ignoring or actively blocking pain signals is the wrong way of going about things.
Actively experiencing pain
Your body is the best monitor you have. The more in touch you can get with your pain, the more likely you are going to be able to overcome it. Another facet of this approach is that the more you choose to mentally and physically experience your pain, the more likely you are to seek a cure for the root cause. At our office in Houston, we love helping our community get to the bottom of their back pain. By listening to them describe their pain, and then performing a comprehensive biomechanical assessment, we can determine what is really causing the pain. This helps set a course for treatment that has the greatest chance of success. When it comes to office-related back pain, the most common spinal problems relate to sitting too much. The lost flexibility and strength at the base of the spine sets your back up for a world of trouble that can be avoided and/or corrected with daily attention.
