Relief Care in Reading: Back pain and neck pain are the most common conditions that are seen at Optimal Align Chiropractic. Bruce Hilligan can help keep his patients pain-free with chiropractic care.
There are many different types of back pain that can be experienced, and they all vary in their pain levels. While some people are able to cope with the pain on a daily basis, many forms can be persistent and debilitating. Some people also suffer repeated pain episodes. Back pain can be triggered by something specific like picking up a heavy object or bending down awkwardly. In other cases, it can develop slowly over time. Some of these common instances can result from being in an uncomfortable position while at work, poor posture or repeated strain on muscles and ligaments in the back.
In today’s society, the majority of people spend their days driving to work and hunching over their desks or computer screens once at the office. This constant driving and hunching can cause a significant amount of pain and damage to the neck. Some of this damage includes injuries to nerves, muscles and ligaments in the neck as well as injuries to the upper spine.
It is extremely important to be mindful of how your body is positioned when performing every day activities, like how you are seated at work, the position of your neck as you are looking down at your phone, or simply picking up items around the house. No matter how aware you are, however, back and neck pain can still strike without a reason and can cause enough discomfort to decrease your quality of life. It is recommended that you visit Bruce Hilligan and the team at Optimal Align Chiropractic as soon as you feel this pain.
