Back Pain Does Not Have to Part of the Game
By Tom Herrin
There are times in which all of us yearn to get out and be involved in activities we once enjoyed. It is possible, but too many times we become overly enthused and leap before we look. It may be reenacting our famed softball reputation or tennis expertise. Whatever it is, we may go full blast as we enjoy the warm days. The problem may arise when we suddenly find ourselves with back pain. This can cause our enthusiasm to turn to disappointment. If your urge to relive the good old days ends up sending you in with back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be all it takes to make you feel alive and well again.
The Back Keeps Us in Business
Anytime we do just about anything physical, our backs bear the brunt of the work. The back helps to stabilize us, keep us upright, and manage much of our movement. The spine carries many delicate nerves that connect with the rest of the body. When we go hard in an activity for which we have not physically prepared ourselves, the muscles that support our spine may become strained. If this happens, they may fail to do their job and a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It can be miserable and unrelenting. We may spend hours walking the floor in search of something to help.
Chiropractors Can Help
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 optimal position. This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain. It can be a great feeling of freedom. It is all natural, so no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. Healing may take place faster and a return to work may be sooner. Many times, the chiropractor will suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
