Got back pain? You’re not alone. Consider these do’s and don’ts to help you get through it.

DO: Strengthen your core. Regular exercise strengthens important core muscle groups including obliques, pelvic floor and deep abdominals.

DON’T: Sleep on your stomach. Stomach sleepers put the largest amount of pressure on their spine, head and neck at night, leading to pain during the day.

DO: Stay hydrated. Because most of our body is water, it needs proper, steady intake to keep it functioning properly. If you’re thirsty, you’ve waited too long.

DON’T: Sit for long periods of time. If you sit behind a desk all day set a reminder to get up and move at least once each hour.

DO: Get your spine checked. You shouldn’t have to live in pain, and chiropractic care can help correct the underlying issue.
