BACK PAIN | Dr. Jason Christ, TULSA CHIROPRACTOR
Dr Jason Christ’s main focus and passion is to help his patients see a new world of freedom in true health and wellness.
Dr. Jason Christ Chiropractic knows firsthand the importance of having good posture that prevents back pain and other health problems. Poor posture (e.g. slumping or slouching while standing) compresses the lumbar spine and strains the cervical spine. When this spinal stress accumulates, it causes back pain, neck pain, and other chronic pain conditions. Dr. Christ believes it's never too late to improve posture. Simple changes to ergonomics, postural correction, and chiropractic exercises can help.
Poor posture can set individuals up for chronic pain and health problems in their golden years. Postural problems compress the lumbar spine and strain the cervical spine, which are major contributing factors for chronic back pain and neck pain.
"Poor posture can have a significant impact on overall health, no matter what a person's age may be," said Dr. Christ. "This includes children who wear heavy backpacks and office workers with bad chairs or poor workstation ergonomics. Even your sleep posture at night can affect many negative contributors to overall health and wellness."
But it's not all bad news, says Dr. Christ. "It's never too late to improve posture and minimize the risk for chronic pain."
Small changes to a person's workspace can have a big impact on health. For example, Dr. Christ recommends adjusting the height an office chair so that feet are flush with the floor. He says whatever it is a person reaches for often at their desk should also be easy and non-strenuous motion. The goal for these changes is to prevent spinal compression and reduce the risk for back problems.
"When we spend long hours hunched over a laptop keyboard or leaning forward to see the computer screen we can strain the neck and compress the lower back," said Dr. Christ. "Working 40+ hours a week in an office environment without proper ergonomic support is a recipe for back pain."
Tulsa chiropractor Jason Christ, D.C. says both adults and children can benefit from gentle, hands-on chiropractic adjustments to ensure proper spinal alignment and minimize the risk for recurring back and neck pain. Corrective care exercises can also help, including core strengthening exercise that make it easier to sit up straight.
In addition to postural correction, Dr. Jason Christ Chiropractic provides chiropractic adjustments, nutrition counseling and wellness care.
