A Few Bad Moves May Mean Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
When many of us think of back pain, we have a picture of someone wearing some kind of a brace and struggling to walk. We may think it only happens as the result of auto accidents or some work-related accident. The fact is that there is no textbook definition of how we may become injured. It may happen after a series of seemingly small incidents that accumulate over a period of time to cause pain. If you have back pain but have no recollection of an accident, a visit to a chiropractor may put the pain behind you.
We Can't Do Without the Back
It is pretty obvious that we rely on the back for lots of things. It gives us our form in that it holds us upright and supports the head. It allows us to bend, twist, and turn. It also carries a large number of delicate nerves to other parts of the body. Anytime the muscles that support it become strained and fail, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. This can seem to make life miserable as little relief is found. You may find yourself walking the floor at night. Pain medication may only serve as a temporary solution.
Chiropractors Feel Your Pain
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 proper position. This can take the pressure off 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. Healing may be more natural and faster. You may be able to return to your regular daily activities sooner. It may be the beginning of a healthy new lifestyle.
