'1-2 Pick Up Sticks' May Be As Far As You Get
By Tom Herrin
Kid games are fun, even when you are older. When you have to pick up sticks for real, it is a little less enjoyable. What may be considered minor yard work such as picking up things that have fallen or blown into the yard can turn into major problems. One of the reasons is that people continue to get older, all people. The tendency is to forget about the aging and go out and do something out of the ordinary. When people haven’t been out bending over and picking things up on a regular basis, they may find themselves stiff and barely able to straighten up. If this happens to you, don’t play games with your health. Make a quick visit to a chiropractor.
Why the Sudden Pain?
Lack of use in certain parts of the body lends itself to stiffness. When a joint hasn’t been worked, it fails to have the mobility necessary to provide a good range of movement. As a result, the muscles become overworked from all the bending and end up somewhat strained. When this happens, they lose some of their ability to support the spine. This ends up causing a joint to take all of the strain alone, which causes pressure on a nerve. Pain follows pretty quickly.
Chiropractors Usually Have A Simple Solution
What chiropractors do is not all that complex. It is just that they know what they are doing and how to do it, and it is natural. Once they perform an adjustment in which they gently manipulate the joint until it is restored to its best position, the pressure is relieved from the nerve. The pain is relieved as well. They may suggest some exercises that will strengthen the area to improve the muscle support. Without the use of pain medications, recovery is much faster.
Regular Visits Are A Good Long-Range Plan
