The Unexpected Connection: Grief and Low Back Pain - How Lombard Chiropractic Care Can Help

Hi everyone, Dr. Oowais Siddique here from Accurate Chiropractic Care in Lombard, IL. Today, I want to discuss something that might surprise you: the connection between grief and low back pain.

Grief is a powerful emotion that takes a toll on our entire being, not just mentally but physically as well. You might experience headaches, fatigue, or even muscle tension. And yes, that tension can manifest in your lower back, leading to aches and stiffness.

There are a few reasons why this happens:

  • Stress Hormones: Grief triggers the release of stress hormones like cortisol. This can lead to muscle tightness and inflammation, both of which contribute to back pain.

  • Changes in Sleep Patterns: Grief can disrupt your sleep, leading to exhaustion and a weakened body more susceptible to pain.

  • Neglecting Self-Care: During grief, healthy habits often fall by the wayside. You might not exercise as much, leading to weaker core muscles that support your back.

So, what can you do?

Allow Yourself to Grieve:  Bottling up emotions won't help. Find healthy outlets for your grief, whether it's journaling, talking to a therapist, or connecting with loved ones.

Prioritize Self-Care:  Even small steps can make a big difference. Get enough sleep, eat nutritious foods, and try gentle exercises like yoga or walking.
