Are you an outdoorsy person? Do you enjoy hikes or outdoor running? Or is sunset yoga the best way to end the week for you? But does your back pain prevent you from doing the things you love outdoors, and instead, you're forced to stay indoors on your couch or bed because of the severe discomfort? Do you ever feel like your back pain is holding you back from enjoying your life? 

Have you ever had to cancel a hiking plan you said yes to weeks ago because of back pain? Do you now avoid certain activities because you're afraid of making your back pain worse? Do you ever feel like your back pain is controlling you now? Unfortunately, some patients who consult with an Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Redwood City are no strangers to these scenarios. But did you know you can combat your back pain with physical activity, particularly climbing the stairs?


Climbing Stairs and Back Pain

Climbing stairs is a low-impact exercise that can help improve your posture and strengthen the lower back muscles. Strong lower back muscles can help support the spine and reduce pain.

A study found that climbing stairs was an effective and low-cost option for people with chronic low back pain. The study involved patients in the climbing group who were instructed to climb five different climbing routes. An activity of 10 sessions within eight weeks, at least once a week with a minimum duration of 1 hour, was mandatory. This study also showed that patients who engaged in regular climbing showed a reduction in the size of disc protrusion.

Hence, if your back pain stops you from enjoying the physical activities you used to do including regularly climbing stairs in your routine may help bring a positive impact on your condition and get you back on track.

How an Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Redwood City can help with back pain

A misaligned atlas and axis bones, which consist of your upper cervical spine, can significantly impact chronic back pain. When the bones in the upper neck area are not properly balanced and aligned, it can cause strain on the surrounding muscles and nerves, leading to persistent discomfort in the back. Accidents, injuries, and even poor posture can contribute to these misalignments. Unlike some minor aches and pains that might resolve on their own, upper cervical misalignments do not heal without proper intervention.

Seeking help from an Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Redwood City is crucial in such cases. They are trained to diagnose and correct misalignments in the upper neck region, restoring the proper balance and alignment of the bones. Upper Cervical Care can alleviate the underlying issues causing back pain through gentle and precise adjustments, offering long-lasting relief. If you are experiencing chronic back pain, book a visit to our office, and we will do our best to help address the root cause of your discomfort and improve your overall well-being.
