Your back is hurting, and you are wondering when you should call the chiropractor. The answer to that question is right now. Chiropractors can help relieve back pain, and this has been supported with years of hard science and double-blind research.

Back pain can be debilitating, and it can seriously affect not just your posture and your activities, but your quality of life. When your back hurts, you may compensate with walking differently or using different muscles than normal, and these are things that can make back pain worse. So, how can your chiropractor help?

Strengthen Core Muscles

The chiropractor can help in several different ways, but one of them is to teach you how to strengthen core muscles. Your core muscles hold you up, and when they are strengthened, there is less stress on your back.

Do Tasks Differently

Your chiropractor can also teach how to do things differently to reduce pain, such as showing you different sleeping positions that are easier on your back. Or showing you how to bend at the knees, and use thigh muscles instead of back muscles.

When your back hurts, muscles can cramp causing nerve pain, which makes everything worse. Never delay seeing your chiropractor if your back hurts. Go right away.
