Does Getting in the Game Mean Back Pain for You?
By Tom Herrin
As we look out the window and see bright blue skies and feel the warm air, most of us tend to be a little inspired. I can't think of a better motivator than this. We may suddenly feel that anything is possible, and we may play out some of the options in our minds. That game of golf or tennis that we may have once enjoyed may seem to be calling our names. We may find ourselves heading out the door before we have a chance to think twice. Going into that game full force can be lots of fun at first, but we often end up overdoing it and come home with a trophy of back pain. If this sounds too familiar to you, a visit to a chiropractor may put the fun back in your game.
The Back Figures in Big
Most of us enjoy making the most of opportunities to get out and be active. A problem may enter when we begin doing more than we have conditioned ourselves for. The back has the job of stabilizing us as we bend and turn. It is a major job. When we engage in activities for which we are not in condition, the muscles that support the back may become strained. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It can change our perspective dramatically as we are unable to find any comfort.
Chiropractors Can Get Things Done
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 the nerve and relieve the pain. Since it is all done naturally, no pan medication is used. There is no risk of side effects or addiction. Healing may be simpler and faster. We may be able to return to our normal daily activities sooner.
