"I Get Back Pain Leaning Over The Counter"

That posture where you are leaned a bit forward can get you. Especially when you do it for a longer period of time.

This applies to leaning over the counter or sink cooking and washing but may be leaning over folding clothes or screwing something in.

Leaning forward slightly can push the discs back. The neuralfor Ramen are more towards the back of the third bay with this with their roots come out also when the disc comes straight back there possibly can be crowding into the spinal canal which actually puts pressure on the spinal cord.

"Can Drinking More Water Help My Discs?"



Technically, drinking more water can help the discs for a couple reasons.

One way is that it helps hydrate the discs. When the discs are more fluid they can move better, they heal better, and they are better shock absorbers.

Number two, the hydration essentially gives more height to that disc which leaves more space for neves to come out.

And three, when you have water, think about the symbol for water - H2O - you're actually gaining oxygen as well which you also need to survive.

"I Think I Have A Bad Disk"?

It's very possible you have a disc that's causing you pain. There's basically a disc between each bone of the spine. So seven bones in neck. The neck is referred to as the cervical spine. There's 12 bones of the thoracic spine or dorsal spine; mid back. And there's five bones of lumbar spine or your low back. When you say "bad disc" you mean a disc problem.

A disc can cause a lot of pain because they often can put direct pressure on nerves or nerve roots.

"Why Can A Bad Disc Be Such A Problem?"

Really, the first question is what is a "bad disc"? We would be referring a disk that is causing a problem or that is not like the others and putting unwanted pressure on nerves.

It depends on where that nerve pressure is that tells us what symptom we're going to have such as pain, or maybe tingling and numbness, and and where that pain it is, and how severe it can be.

Also, because where the disc lies and correlation to where the nerves or nerve roots come out of the spine makes it common for a herniated, bulged, or degenerated disc, to cause some major nerve pressure.

How Can I Easily Combat My Back Pain?



There's a few simple things one can do at home.

The first one is diet - avoiding highly inflammatory foods is important but drinking a good amount liquid like water is also high on the list. Those discs in between each spinal bone have and need a large water content.

Next, is keeping the spine in alignment. A great way to do that is when you sit. Simply use a lower back posture cushion to keep that spine where it belongs. Seeing your Chiropractor can also make a big difference.

Lastly, stretch the muscles and keep Them loose. Remember all those muscles attach to bones and when things are really tight they will pull thing out of alignment this means no pressure this means no pressure and no pain.

Why Is The Neck Roll So Important?



One of the biggest Neck misalignments out there is loss of the cervical curve. If you have a straight curvature, otherwise known as a military neck. Then there is a reversed curve or kyphotic neck. This is where the spine goes in the opposite direction.

A kyphotic area like the thoracic or dorsal spine is a curve that opens towards the front of our body. A lordosis or a lordotic curve opens (the neck or low back) towards our posterior or towards our back.

The body is made like this to keep our spines as healthy and strong as possible.

How important Is It I Have A neck Roll?

It is very important your pillow has a neck roll and gives you good support. Often if your pillow is too soft or old, it has lost its support. We need the neck roll because it keeps A "C" curve in the neck. When you have a "C" curve of the neck, the nerve fibers have no pressure. But when we lose that curvature we get pression nerves which could lead to problems. This may not just be in pain it may also mean tingling, numbness, weakness, or something else. The bottom line here is that for our bodies to work like they should we need to have the nerves free of pressure because any pressure equals a problem. A pillow that doesn't give support allows your neck to flatten out - exactly what you don't want. The Back Dr’s specializes in pain relief for the neck and the lower back. We will help you have better posture, get better sleep and help you be more comfortable. Helping you find natural remedies for your active lifestyle.
