Home Is Where the Heart Is and, Maybe, Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
No matter how hard we may try to avoid accidents, they may happen in spite of our efforts. While many of us think of auto accidents or something happening at work, accidents are just that. They are unplanned incidents. When we are in the safety of our homes, we usually feel quite comfortable with doing whatever we need to. This may involve things such as some simple lifting as we put things such as boxes away for the season. After a bit of lifting, we may find ourselves with some simple back pain. If filling the top shelves in a storage closet ends up giving you back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may get you back to the top of your game.
The Back and the Closet
When we take on the chore of lifting boxes, or other containers, up to be put away, we have the risk of straining the muscles that support our backs. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure may be placed on a nerve causing pain. This can be pain that may be nagging and allow us the chance of little reprieve. We may end up walking the floor seeking rest. Pain medications may offer no break.
Chiropractors Can Identify the Problem
When we go to a chiropractor with back pain, we can expect to be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its proper position. When this happens, the pressure is taken off of the nerve, and the pain is relieved. This is a great feeling. Since this is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. There is no risk of side effects or addiction. People are often able to return to work, or other activities, sooner. For some, this may be the start of a healthy new lifestyle.
