Minor Bumps and Major Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
One of the most common notions about back pain is that it often comes after major accidents. We have all seen someone who has been involved in one of these and observed how they may have struggled with the pain. In reality, we don't have to get into major accidents to be on the receiving end of a debilitating back injury. It may happen as the result of a very small incident. If you have been in a small accident and had big back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may put you on the road to recovery.
The Back Does It All
The body is an interesting piece of equipment. Most of the movement that occurs has something to do with the back. Whether it is turning, twisting, or bending, the back is a primary base for the movement. Anytime we are involved in an unexpected event, such as some kind of an accident, the muscles that support the spine may become strained. When this happens, they may fail to be able to do their job. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve, causing pain. It may be very minor or it may be such that there can be no rest or reprieve.
Chiropractors Can Spot the Problem and Treat It
When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you will be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain. Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. It can be a great feeling of natural healing. Many times, the chiropractor will suggest some exercises that may help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
