Heels That Look Painful...

I recently traveled by plane to visit my friends that I have known for a long time. As I was waiting for my connecting flight, I had nothing to do but "people watch". I saw a couple woman with heels on that looked so uncomfortable. One looked like she was actually in pain walking...

We have to remember if we don't have a sturdy base we will get problems higher up the body. In other words, bad foot alignment will affect our spines.

Not only that, our gaits (how we walk) plays a role too. In the airport, this was Atlanta by the way; a big airport. So you may have to walk a long distance as well.

Bottom line is that if they look painful, they probably are. All I'm saying is that when you travel, you don't need a big heel, because it may hurt your feet and do damage further up the spine.

How Can I Boost My Metabolism?

Boosting your metabolism can play a big role in weight loss. First, stay active - not just your body but the mind too. You will burn more than you think! Instead of sitting on the couch eating and watching tv, do some crunches during your favorite show. Drink more water - not only will it fill you up but it's great substitute for a sugary drink. It is also used in most body processes and has been shown to help boost the metabolism. Eat more fruits and veggies - researches at the University of Florida found that when two groups consumed the same number of calories, the one with more fruits and vegetables had smaller waist sizes... Lastly, eat less processed foods. Processed foods contain more sugar and other "junk"; just look at the label. If the ingredient list is giant and you don't know what half the items are, it's probably not good for you. 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.

A 3D Picture of the Spine



Here is a 3D picture of our spine, I'm showing you this because I wanted you to see the curvatures. We have a "C" curve in the neck, a wider opposite curve ")" in the dorsal or thoracic spine, and another "C" (actually an elliptical curve) in the low back. The spine was built this way to withstand all external forces at its best.

Too Much Sleep Also Hurts My Back

Has it happened to you?

You overslept or went back to bed for anther hour and then woke up with an achey back. It is similar to standing somewhere or maybe sitting too long somewhere. Things stiffen up, inflammation builds, and muscles shorten.

So how do we prevent this? Well #1 is to set an alarm or try not to sleep too long. The same goes for sitting to long or maybe standing too much on a hard floor. #2 is to drink more water. Water helps to keep the muscle, discs, and other joints hydrated. #3 is exercise and stretch regularly. This keeps muscles and joints loose and limber.

Hard Lumbar Belts...

Most often I recommend a softer type belt. I've found they're easier to use, more comfortable and something the vast majority will like better. The reason is really so we can get some movement. Whereas the hard one restricts the motion completely. There are times when the hard one might be needed. Maybe right after a serious surgery for example. For most suffering with back pain, we want some stability! But we want to get them moving again. Motion is life they say; each joint has motion, and it's when we stop moving for too long it's a problem. Motion allows inflammation and other cell waste to exit an area. It also helps nutrients and other important cells get to an area. Therefore, we want to restore motion as soon as we can! 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.
