I’ve Been Coughing And Sneezing, I think I Messed My Back Up...

You definitely may have. When you cough,especially if you try to hold it in, you build up internal pressure. It is often this pressure that can throw the spine out of whack.

I often rush to turn or something else to avoid sneezing somewhere I don’t want as well; this can definitely cause some discomfort.

I just thought of this morning, I moved turned away from my daughter so I didn’t sneeze on her. Now. She was on my lap so I turned my low back and neck as much as I could. I also, for some reason, often turn left, but we have an end table there. I had my coffee there so I rushed to turn right.

Now, if I have the chance, I grab something to brace myself. Some sneezes are bigger than others! As you guessed, this one was big. Not only did I wrench my back but my neck didn’t feel great either.

If you know a big sneeze or cough is coming, and you can, keep your body’s spine straight and your head straight, bend your knees slightly, and grab something to brace for the body’s whiplash.

"I Hate Pain"

Pain is your body’s way of saying: “somethings wrong”. So if you have pain there is something going on in your body that’s not right.

Some people can withstand more pain than others; they have a higher “pain threshold”. You could say to me this can be good and bad. You could withstand more pain however you may ignore pain that you shouldn’t.

The same holds true for taking medication. Some medicines trick the brain so you don’t feel anything, meanwhile the pain is still there and the problem is still there, you just don’t know it. So things can actually be getting worse.

Can You Get Back Pain From Sitting Too Much?



If you are constantly in one position all-the-time, and don’t move much, you can get pain. They often say “motion is life” because the body is meant to move.

So let’s just say you have a job where you sit a lot. Nothing says you can’t get up and move around a bit. Also, make sure you desk set-up is as optimal as possible. Not just the lower back is comfortable but the neck is in a good position too.

The whole spine is connected and works as one unit, so keep it healthy and maintain it every day.

I Never Had To Stretch...



My wife recently pulled her Right Hamstring muscle. How did it happen? After playing basketball with our son she said to me “I think I pulled my hamstring muscle”.

I said, “you probably should have stretched a bit”. “Plus, all you drank today was coffee”.

So that’s two big things right there: drink more things that hydrate you and your muscles. Water is my choice and will prevent muscle injury by keeping the muscles hydrated. Coffee does exactly the opposite - it dehydrates you!

Now, not stretching doesn’t help either. So try to warm those muscles up and stretch to keep the muscles loose and limber.

“My Back Is Just Sore”



Whether it Sore, in Pain, Is Numb, whatever, there is most likely some nerve pressure there somewhere. However, it can be okay if it’s just a muscle type soreness that dissipates quick.

For example, maybe you worked the back real hard for a day, and you noticed that soreness for a day or two.

If it persists then you may want to see your Chiropractor. The key really is to get your spine in alignment and get pressure off the nerves.

Using a back belt or something to sit against that aligned your back and prevents slouching, will help.
