Preventions of Back And Neck Pains

At Spine Physicians Institute we see patients everyday at our office locations conveniently located to the Dallas, Irving, Red Oak, Plano, Southlake, Grapevine, Colleyville and Duncanville areas from different age groups, professions and genders. The simple truth is that the majority of us will at some point in time experience back and neck pain at some point in our lives. In many cases we see back and neck conditions could have been prevented before getting to the point of needing spine surgery or neck treatments. The main goal we have for all of the patients we see is to help them prevent back pain before it becomes a major issue in their lives.

By taking small steps each and everyday many of our current and past patients have seen major decreases in the amount of back pain and neck pain related symptoms they previously encountered on a daily basis.

Some causes of non-hereditary related back and neck pain related issues can be traced back to several lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, infrequent exercise and stretching, in-proper lifting, overuse, poor posture and other measures that with a little bit of effort and support can be avoided.

Simple changes that can be made which have have proven successful for many of our patients in our Dallas, Red Oak, Irving and Plano offices have included:

  • Buying a proper chair with back support for work
  • Changing their diet to  a more sensible meal plan to include more lean proteins, vegetables, fruits and water
  • Smoking cessation  – smoking is commonly related to bone loss in the body
  • Daily morning walks and stretching
  • Learning to lift with their legs and not bending over to lift heavy weights

Again, any back pain or neck pain should be looked at by an experienced specialist who can determine if your condition is not more serious in nature. At Spine Physicians Institute we understand that our patient’s ongoing health and lifestyle activities play a crucial role in not only the way they feel but in their spine health as well. This is why engaging in a back pain prevention program that encompasses your total health from nutrition to exercise should be the starting point to a better lifestyle.
