Lower Back Pain and its Impact on Lifestyle
Chronic Back Pain is a leading cause of missed work in Canada. While missing work is enough of a problem, not being able to live an active lifestyle can have a huge impact on future health. At Yaletown Chiropractic we have seen our clients make great strides in returning to work and their activities pain-free. Our goal is to free your life of chronic back pain and lead a happy, healthy life!
Getting To Your Best Self
Yaletown Chiropractic is home to Dr. Shawn K. Exley, A.S., B.Sc., D.C. and Dr. Brenda J. Mason, B.Sc., B.Ed., D.C.. Together they combine a variety of techniques to help you maintain a healthy spine.
When you arrive for your first visit, we perform a thorough evaluation of your spine, focusing on the main area of complaint, to make sure we understand all contributing factors that may be impacting your lifestyle.
The techniques used by your Chiropractor may vary depending on what is most appropriate for you.
To help protect your lower back, try these helpful tips:
- Consume a healthy, well-balanced diet
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Avoid prolonged sitting and consider a sit/stand desk for work
- Engage in aerobic exercise and strength training activities
- Perform a sufficient warm-up before activity
- Maintain proper posture
