chronic lower back pain

3 common causes of back painAs you’re going through your day, you take precautions to prevent yourself from being injured. You wear your seat belt or your bike helmet, and you make sure to look both ways before crossing the street. However, even though you’re protecting yourself against major injury, small things like incorrect posture or wearing the wrong shoes can leave you with pain and discomfort in your back.

At World’s Best Massage Chairs (WBMC), we want to help you safely massage your back, and with one of our chairs, you can defeat chronic back pain!  In this post, we’ll look at three common causes of back pain, and how one of our massage chairs can help you overcome it.

Bad Posture

You may have scoffed when your mother told you to sit up and eat your dinner, but doing so may have helped you develop good posture for the rest of your life. If you slouch in your chair at work, or you’re often slumped on the couch in the evening, then your muscles and ligaments have to work harder to keep your spine balanced. This strain can lead to aches and pains, and you could end up with chronic discomfort. By pairing good posture with a regular massage from your new chair, you can avoid chronic pain and live a healthier life.

Lower back painOverexertion

If your job requires you to lift or move heavy objects all day, then it’s important not to overexert yourself while working. It’s also important to wear the proper shoes and safety equipment so that you don’t put too much strain on your back. Improper lifting techniques can leave you in serious pain, and trying to move something that should be moved with a dolly or a cart can be a quick way to hurt yourself. It’s also a good idea to take breaks and let your backrest for a few minutes. When you get home at the end of the day, you can sit down in your massage chair and let the rollers soothe away any discomfort you’re experiencing.

Medical Conditions

If you suffer from osteoarthritis of the spine, degenerative disc disease, or another medical condition that affects your back, then you might be looking for a new way to relieve your discomfort. Medical ailments can limit your mobility, but there are ways to stay active. If your doctor has recommended massage as a way to deal with your condition, then one of our chairs can be the perfect addition to your home or office.
