If you've ever gone out for a hard night of drinking, then you might have experienced some aches and pains from the night before.
Let's skip the fact that you can get hurt when you lose your inhibitions. Drinking alcohol not only disrupts and damages the decision-making area of the brain, it also emboldens those who partake. You might slip and fall, take a spill, bust a move, or perform any number of brazen acts that end up with a visit to a chiropractor near you.
Drinking on St. Paddy's Day? That's okay! You're not alone. If you decide to skip the adult beverages, that's equally cool minus the next day hangover. But if you do have a few too many, could it lead to back problems?

Prior studies have suggested a link between alcohol consumption and lower back pain, published back in 2012 in Manual Therapy. However, according to Australian researchers, conclusive evidence has yet to make a solid connection between the two.
An association was commonly found in studies (data was pooled from 26 studies in total) where the primary focus was investigating alcohol abuse in patients previously diagnosed with chronic back pain.
What's it all mean?
Well, researchers were only able to conclude that alcohol intake may be associated with lower back pain, but only in patients who engage in heavy drinking, binge drinking, or those who had problems with alcohol abuse and dependency in the past.
If you think you might have a problem with alcohol, seek treatment immediately, or your problem may get strong enough to deal with you first.

Read on to learn a little more about how chiropractic care benefits patients of all ages, from children, to adults, to senior citizens.
Many times, people make the mistake of thinking that chiropractic care is only reserved for those who experience serious back problems, those who experience injury, whether that be on the job, at home, or during an extracurricular activity.
The truth is, back pain can happen to someone of any age. And chiropractic care is something that should be considered and explored, both if a child experiences growing pains, or if a high school student has experienced injury while on the field or on the court of competition. Adults and seniors stand to gain the most benefits from chiropractic care, but...

Expecting Moms out there, it's just as important to take care of your body as it is to take care of the baby you're making. Chiropractic care might not be the first thing you think of during pregnancy, but it could very well be the difference between a smooth or turbulent experience. Let's be honest, no pregnancy is really smooth, is it? But think about the fact that your body is under more pressure during pregnancy. Chiropractic care relieves conditions of the spine, back pain, and also treats your discs, related nerves, joints, and bone geometrics. Best of all, chiropractic care is done holistically -- no drugs; no surgery.
Established chiropractors have extensive experience working with women during every stage of pregnancy -- some even take special interest in pre and postnatal care.

Make sure you pick the right backpack. Here’s a pretty sweet article from Prevention.com highlighting spine-friendly backpacks for your consideration. Make sure you stretch really well before you set out on the trail. Wear proper footwear -- it’s also worth it to spring for gel soles.
