What Is The Relationship Between Back Pain And Disuse Syndrome?

on Oct 8, 2019 11:10:00 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 2 Comments | back pain
We spend a lot of time sitting. In our cars, at our desks, at the dinner table, and on our couch. If you have a desk job, you're sitting for nearly eight hours every day, about 40 hours a week. Then you get home, sit at the dinner table, and then finally collapse on the couch. That's a lot of time spent sitting around. And, it's becoming more and more evident that it's not very good for us. It can cause or aid in the development of several diseases, including obesity and diabetes, and it can cause or exacerbate back pain. The term given to this level of inactivity is "Disuse Syndrome." In the article below, we'll take a look at the relationship between disuse syndrome and back pain.

When we think of the things that could potentially threaten our lives, we rarely think of our desk chair. However, according to many researchers, your desk chair is actually one of the biggest potential threats to your health.

According to the CDC, one in four adults in the United States sits for more than eight hours every day, and most of that is due to their job.

How Obesity and Back Pain Are Related

on Sep 18, 2019 4:35:50 PM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | back pain
If you ask 100 people if they think obesity can cause back pain, at least 90 of them are going to say yes. And they'd be right, right? It seems reasonable to suggest that obesity places undue stress on the pelvis, back, and spine, which would trigger the development of chronic back pain. However, the association between the two has long been a point of contention between researchers. You have one group of researchers who believe the cause-and-effect is clearly established. The excess weight pushes the pelvis forward and thereby strains the lower back. Then there's another group of researchers who believe that body mechanics alone is a far too simple explanation for a condition that varies significantly from one person to the next. Even people of similar age, body type, and experience will see varying differences in their back pain or lack thereof. In the article below, we will explain both groups stances, and find out of obesity and back pain are related, or if it's more complicated than that.

Chiropractic Adjustments Increase Immune Cells Chiropractic Care Is About More Than Back Pain Schedule A Chiropractic Appointment Today   Chiropractic Care and the Flu in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 5% and 20% of the U.S. population comes down with the flu each year. Of those, as many as 200,000 people are hospitalized for their flu-related complications. It's one of those things we can always be sure of. The opposite of up is down, after day comes night, and every year there will be a flu season. It's an unfortunate truth of our reality. Luckily for most of us, it's not a big deal. We suffer for a few days, but everything goes back to normal after that. It's a different story for the very young and the very old where getting the flu can be devastating. The flu shot does a good job protecting them for the could-be deadly-sickness if they get it on time every year. However, for most of us, doing things like staying hydrated, taking probiotics, and getting extra vitamin C, iron, and vitamin D3 will get us out of the woods. There is, however, a treatment no one thinks of when talking about the flu: Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic care treats more than just back pain, and can actually help you prevent and fight off the flu. We'll discuss more below. - back to top
