Do you have back issues? Are you experiencing long-term pain?
It’s possible your spine is out of alignment. If your spine is misaligned, it can cause pain and discomfort and other issues that can affect the quality of your life.
Keep reading, and you can find out five of the signs your spine is out of alignment and how you can help fix it.
1. Do You Have Chronic Headaches and Backaches?
Did you know that the spinal cord and the central nervous system are pathways for your brain to communicate with organs and the other parts of your body? If your spine is misaligned, you can get things like headaches or migraines that you might not even know are due to a misaligned spine.
Backaches are also common in people who have misaligned spines. Over time backaches can become worse and debilitating. It’s best to get them looked at and figure out a plan of action before they get worse.
2. Is There Numbness or Tingling in Your Back?
If you have been dealing with long-term pain, you may start noticing some tingling in your back, hands, and feet. When your spine is misaligned, it can potentially cause nerve damage over a long period, and this can cause chronic pain. Speak with your healthcare provider and your chiropractor to figure out the best course of action to free yourself of the tingling sensation of pinched nerves.
3. Do You Have Frequent Illnesses?
A spine out of alignment can also cause frequent illnesses. Getting sick a lot is due to the spine being the main highway of information in your body. The misalignment of the spine can cause some signals can get blocked, and the important data your brain is trying to send doesn’t get passed throughout the body efficiently. If this information helps your body detect and get rid of germs, interference of the signal prevents the immune system from doing its job. With a simple adjustment by a chiropractor, your body can open up those lines of communication again.
4. How Is Your Posture?
Is sitting like smoking for your health? Sitting at an office desk all day can be hard on good posture. The more we sit, the more inclined we are to slump in our chairs. If you have noticed your posture has been horrible, your spine may have been misaligned due to improper posture while sitting. Your hips and legs may also be in pain due to this.
Get an evaluation from a chiropractor to see how you can improve your posture and sit in a healthier position for the spine and hips. You may also want to consider a more ergonomic chair to help you be mindful when sitting at your desk.
5. Are You Tired All the Time?
When your spine is out of alignment, it can also cause you to be fatigued all the time. If you are in constant pain due to your back or other parts of your body, it can quickly sap your energy. A chiropractor can help relieve some of that pain and hopefully get you back to your usual self in no time.
