10 Tips For New Parents To Help Prevent Low Back Pain From Chiropractor Oakville

Welcome to parenthood! We all want to enjoy this new time in our lives, however for some of us, the stresses and strains of being a new parent can often contribute to low back pain. Suddenly, you are carrying your baby, and all the "baby gear" lifting strollers into trunks of cars and that is just the beginning. For new Moms, you are doing all this while your ligaments may still be loose from pregnancy. Initially, you may be lifting a 7-10 pound baby 40 times a day, however by the time your little one is a year old, you may be lifting a 17-24 pound baby.

Here are some tips for new parents to help avoid developing back pain from Chiropractor Oakville:

- Exercise regularly: Even 10 minutes a day can go a long way to help maintain your flexibility and strength.

- Bring the baby close to your chest before you lift: Try not to reach your arms out to lift your baby and avoid twisting your body while you lift.

- Bend with your knees not at your waist: To lift your baby off the floor, squat down, tighten the muscles in your stomach and lift with your legs.

- Remove the high chair tray: When placing baby in the high chair or taking the baby out of the high chair.

- Lift baby from the crib with care: If you can, lower the crib side. If the side of your crib does not lower, gently pull the baby towards you, tighten the muscles in the back of your legs and buttocks and lift the baby over the top.

- Avoid hip carrying: Try not to carry your child on your hip. Alternate hips if possible.

- Avoid painful upper backs while feeding: If breastfeeding, bring the baby to your breast, rather than bending over the baby. While feeding sit in an upright chair rather than a soft couch and place pillow beneath your elbows for additional support.

- Car seats: Try not to stand outside the car when placing you child in a car seat. Kneel on the seat if possible. If kneeling is not possible, try to keep your knees slightly bent and use the muscles in your buttocks and legs to lift yourself out of the bend over position.

- Healthy weight: Eat healthy foods during your pregnancy and have some healthy freezer meals on supply for after the baby is born. These foods can help to provide your body with the energy that it needs to get through the day. Many women do not like hearing the"weight" word, however maintaining a healthy weight is important to help prevent low back pain.

- Stroller in the trunk: Be careful when lifting strollers into the trunk of the car as they can be heavy and awkward to maneuver. Lift with your knees and then twist rather than lifting and twisting in one movement. Bring the stroller as close to you as possible before you lift.

- Visiting your Chiropractor: Chiropractic care can benefit you at any stage of life however, Chiropractic care can be especially important during pregnancy and after. During pregnancy, your centre of gravity changes due to the additional weight that you are carrying. This adds stresses to the spine. In addition, hormones such as relaxin, cause the ligaments to become looser to prepare the expectant mom for childbirth. These hormones can stay elevated in our systems for months after the baby is born. Chiropractors typically practices a manual approach and provide diagnosis, treatment and preventative recommendations for conditions related to the spine, pelvis, joints, nerves and muscles.

Release the Piriformis to Alleviate Low Back Pain

Nagging aches and pains in the lower back region can take away the joy of training. However, you can take charge of this by performing some simple self-myofascial release techniques on your piriformis.

The piriformis puts up with a lot, whether through overuse, as in strenuous training and quick changes of direction, or underuse, as in excessive sitting. You can use a lacrosse ball to help release the tightness.

Locate the piriformis. It is below your gluteal muscles. From a side view, it is midway between the base of your spine and the front of your hip.

Position that spot on top of the lacrosse ball and sit down. Keep your posture straight and your shoulders up.

Roll around your piriformis for about a minute.

After rolling out your piriformis, you need to stretch it. Try these:

Figure Four - Sit with your legs bent and cross one ankle over the opposite knee. Try to bring your butt as close to your heels as possible.

Pigeon Stretch - Extend one leg back and fold the other under you with your foot to the side. Lean forward and down toward the ground as much as you can.

Modified Pigeon Stretch - If you are having trouble doing the pigeon stretch, you can modify it by folding your leg on top of a bench and bending your back knee.

If you give your body some tender loving care, it will respond. In this way, you can fight back against back pain.

Paracetamol no better than placebo for low back pain, study finds | Reuters

LONDON Paracetamol, a painkiller universally recommended to treat people with acute low back pain, does not speed recovery or reduce pain from the condition, according to the results of a large trial published on Thursday.

A study published in The Lancet medical journal found that the popular pain medicine was no better than placebo, or dummy pills, for hastening recovery from acute bouts of low back pain or easing pain levels, function, sleep or quality of life.

Researchers said the findings challenge the universal endorsement of paracetamol as the first choice painkiller for lower back pain.

"We need to reconsider the universal recommendation to provide paracetamol as a first-line treatment," said Christopher Williams, who led the study at the University of Sydney in Australia.

Lower back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. In the United States alone, costs relating to the condition are estimated to be more than $100 billion a year.

Currently, every back pain treatment guideline in the world recommends paracetamol as the first-line analgesic and Williams said this was despite the fact that no previous studies have provided robust evidence that it works in this condition.

In his trial, 1,652 people from Sydney with acute low back pain were randomly assigned to receive up to four weeks of paracetamol, either in regular doses three times a day, or as needed, or to receive placebos. All those involved received advice and reassurance and were followed up for three months.

The results showed no difference in the number of days to recovery between the treatment groups - with the average time to recovery coming out at 17 days for each of the groups given paracetamol, and at 16 days for the placebo group.

Paracetamol had no effect on short-term pain levels, disability, function, sleep quality, or quality of life, the researchers said, and the number of patients reporting negative side effects was similar in all groups.

Christine Lin, an associate professor at the George Institute for Global Health and the University of Sydney who also worked on the study, said the reasons for paracetamol failing to work for lower back pain were not well understood.

"While we have shown that paracetamol does not speed recovery from acute back pain, there is evidence that paracetamol works to relieve pain for a range of other conditions, such as headaches, some acute musculoskeletal conditions, tooth ache and for pain straight after surgery," she said in a statement about the findings.

"What this study indicates is that the mechanisms of back pain are likely to be different from other pain conditions, and this is an area that we need to study more."

Experts who were not directly involved praised the study but cautioned that guidelines should nevertheless not be changed on the basis of a single piece of research.

"More robust and consistent evidence, including verification of the results in other populations, is needed," Bart Koes and Wendy Enthoven from the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands wrote in a Lancet commentary.

They also called for more studies on whether other simple analgesics could add extra benefits on top of giving advice and reassurance to patients.
