Proper Ergonomics to Avoid Back Pain

Your daily activities can have an impact on your back health. Using proper body mechanics while you’re working and handling other tasks can reduce back pain. Making sure that you’re considering ergonomics as you do things can help you minimize the chance of experiencing back pain. Our team at Simple Truth Chiropractic in Grand Rapids and Lake Odessa can help you experience relief and learn how to prevent problems from occurring in the future.

Why Does Improper Ergonomics Lead to Back Pain?

Your spine is under a lot of pressure each day while you move around. Unfortunately, this means that it can become misaligned, which means that other structures in the body have to work harder for you to do normal activities. As a result, the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the back can become stretched and overworked. This can lead to back pain, as well as pain throughout the rest of the body.

Chiropractic care helps alleviate back pain caused by poor posture and bad ergonomics by realigning the spinal column. Our chiropractors will also provide you with instructions for other lifestyle changes to help with pain management. These recommendations will likely include:

  • Keeping your spine straight when you sit or stand to minimize pressure on your spine
  • Hold your phone higher to avoid neck pain from occurring
  • Exercising regularly so your body can function optimally
  • Using ergonomic equipment, such as supporting chairs, or monitor risers, when working
