Joya for back problems – causes, symptoms and remedies
Flexible and stable, versatile and firm - our back is masterfully built and sensitive like a house of cards. It extends from the neck to the buttocks and carries us throughout our lives.
Our back consists of the spine and over 300 extrinsic and intrinsic back muscles and numerous ligaments that flexibly hold our back system together. Here, the spine is the most stable part of the human body and has the function of stabilizing the trunk, ensuring an upright posture and the greatest possible mobility.
Common back problems
In today's world, the average person spends seven years of their life sitting in an office chair and although our backs could carry us 30 kilometers, in modern times we only walk about five kilometers a day. Lack of exercise, incorrect loads (wrong, one-sided), overuse or the wrong footwear, such as shoes with high heels on the hard and flat everyday floor, lead to problems with the back, spine or muscles. It is therefore no wonder that back pain is the number one widespread disease.
The most common back problems include:
- Sciatica complaints
- Herniated disc
Tips in everyday life
- Make sure your posture is upright and your back is straight, both when sitting and standing.
- Wear soft-elastic shoes whenever possible, such as Joya shoes.
- Sit as little as possible. Standing desks are highly recommended, so that sitting and standing can be alternated - your spine will be pleased.
- Avoid carrying heavy loads or using weights that are too heavy when exercising.
- When exercising, be sure to stretch and warm up and remember to take a healthy amount of exercise, following the motto - what's good for you - sometimes that can just be a simple walk.
- Stress and inner turmoil also often lead to muscular tension, use relaxation and stretching techniques, such as yoga or breathing exercises, to achieve a release of tension.
- Use hot water bottles or heat pads, heat promotes circulation and can relieve muscle tension and ease pain.
- If you have further questions or if you feel unsure because the pain in the Joya shoe does not improve despite following the tips, please contact a Joya retail partner you trust.
Measures to prevent back pain
Leaving the back pain behind! To relieve the back soft-elastic shoes can work wonders and enough exercise is the key. If you have back pain, you should take a look in your shoe closet, because high-heeled, flat or hard shoes on today's hard floors or streets lead to strain on the spine and musculoskeletal system with every step. They do not at all support active walking and standing as well as relief, relaxation and strengthening of the back muscles.
First of all back pain demands regular exercise and sports activity, because a carefully strengthened muscular system supports and relieves your back with all its vertebrae, joints and muscles in the long run. To promote this activity of the muscles, it is advisable to consult Joya shoes with their unique sole, consisting of soft-elastic material. When walking, the soft-elastic sole significantly absorbs shocks to the back joints and spine and with the help of micro- and macro-movements, an increase in the activity of the muscles already takes place when standing, which in turn prevents pain. Through the Joya shoe, muscles, tendons and joints are challenged in a natural way, but at the same time are protected, which leads to a strengthening of the entire active shock absorption system.

The right footwear
The orthopedist's tip in everyday shoes is called "soft-elastic soles and low heels":
- Hard or flat soles increase the load pressure on the spine and joints.
- "Soft-elastic soles cushion the impact when walking, which leads to the fact that intervertebral discs and joints are spared, but at the same time, due to an increased balancing act when walking, muscles are more stressed, a higher activity takes place and healthy muscle development is strengthened," says Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Anders, specialist in pathophysiology at the University Hospital of Jena.
- With high heels, the body's center of gravity is placed significantly forward and the body must compensate for this posture, which leads to misuse of muscles and joints.
- The spine is also in an unnatural bent position in heels, which can lead to a hollow back in the long term.
