A Little Extra Work Outdoors May Cause Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
As we move along from the hot months to those somewhat cooler, we often see a need to do a little prep. This may involve getting out the rakes and clippers once again. Many times, the hot dry summer months do a pretty good number on trees and other plants. There may be quite a bit of raking and trimming to do as we get ready to turn the page on seasons. For those who are ready to get it finished and over with, the extra effort can hurt. Our bodies do best when we keep them tuned up and prepared. When we do work but haven't given ourselves that opportunity, back pain may pay us a call. If getting your place ready when you aren't up for it causes you back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may keep you going .
The Back May Over-Perform
Sometimes we expect our backs to do more than they are ready to do. In the case of simple overwork, the muscles that support the spine may become strained and fail. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on nerve causing pain. It may be a pain that seems to never let up. We may find ourselves walking the floor in search of rest. Pain medication may only serve as a bandage.
Chiropractors Understand the Back
When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. When this happens, pressure is taken off of the nerve, and the pain is relieved. It can be a great feeling of freedom. Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used, so there is no risk of addiction or side effects. In some cases, the chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
