New Years Resolutions - Don't Let Back Pain Hold You Back

By January 3, 2013

Follow me on:

Most people don't make New Year's resolutions to stop having back pain.  I understand that.  But, having back pain can really put a crimp in your ability to fulfill your other health resolutions.  For example, if you want to lose weight, you are best served by incorporating regular exercise in your schedule.  But what if your back hurts?  Should you exercise?  Can you do your aerobics for the length of time you need in order to lose the weight in a timely fashion?  This is not always an easy question.  Just the same, I've attempted to answer it in my article Should You Hit the Gym When Your Back Is Sore?

Well, okay, let's say you do want to make a resolution to do something more about your chronic neck or back condition.  You want to start being pro-active about your back pain management efforts, for example.  (Maybe this will help you stick with your weight loss goal.)  To really be pro-active you have to do some kind of movement or exercise program, in my opinion.  So it's the same problem all over again.  This is where I think holistic therapies may come in handy.

If you're looking for ways you can make it easy to accomplish things physically, whether you're trying to facilitate other New Year's resolutions, or you've made a goal of taking more responsibility for your pain, my Tools for Keeping New Year's Resolutions All Year Round may help.  Also check out Take Personal Responsibility for Your Chronic Back Pain.
