Hurting After a Road Trip? Visit the Chiropractor

By Rachel Carver

You have a nice day with some down time, so, you decide to take a road trip to check out a building, historic landmark, or stream for some quiet time off the beaten path. But what you do not expect is to end up with back pain after your car bounces you around a rough road. 

Even if you have never experienced back pain before, getting tossed around in your vehicle can make things hurt. Chiropractic care can come to the rescue if you find yourself in this position, hurting after a road trip.

Facts About the Back

The back is made up of many ligaments, joints, muscles, and bones. Even when you think your back is resting, it is actually hard at work. It keeps our body upright and supports our head. The back allows us to turn, stand up, sit down, and execute pretty much any other movement.

Certain movements, such as sudden shaking in a car on a rough road, can strain muscles, causing them to fail. A joint dysfunction occurs, placing pressure on a nerve that causes pain.

Chiropractors Can Help

Chiropractors are known for treating back pain, no matter the cause. Gentle spinal manipulation is used to restore the injured joint to its proper position. This natural approach relieves nerve pressure, keeping you out of pain. Proper alignment also improves your range of motion and your flexibility.

Your chiropractor can also give you some exercise recommendations to strengthen your back and core. Stronger muscles can decrease the likelihood that you will injure the same area again, which means your next rough car ride might not hurt so much.

Stay Out of Pain With Regular Chiropractic Care

It is important to find a physical activity you enjoy to stay active. This might mean you pick up cycling or running. No matter your activity level, chiropractic care can keep you ready for your next adventure.

Many people go back to the chiropractor after their first adjustment to maintain their overall health and wellness. So, if that random road trip took you on a painful, bumpy /ide, don't wait to seek care. Medication might help temporarily, but your pain will not go away without addressing the joint dysfunction or other issue.

The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you will create a plan that prepares you for your next long car ride. They can also tell you more about other ways chiropractic care can improve your health and wellness. The Joint's affordable pricing and walk-in visits make care accessible to everyone.
