Can Lounging Around Cause Pain?

By Tom Herrin

Everyone appreciates those days off.  It is particularly enjoyable when you have been working a pretty tough schedule, stayed busy with kids activities, and been tapped for every volunteer group that gets you in their sights.  When that day off comes, you are ready to sit back, relax and just do a lot of nothing.  Then out of the blue comes the kicker.  You slip or make a wrong turn doing something and you wonder what in the world you did to deserve this.  Often injuries come when we least expect them.  We call these accidents.  When this pain hits your back, don’t wait.  Now is the time to see a chiropractor.

Injuries At Home Are Common

Unfortunately we sometimes feel that when we are at home, we are off duty and on official break.  It is a time when we are relaxing and maybe not as careful about what we do.  After all, we are in very familiar surroundings and feel like we know our home from from top to bottom.  But that item out of place or that spot we suddenly slip catches us by complete surprise.  For older people, a large number of serious injuries happen at home.  We are just not as physically prepared, and it costs us.

What Happens

One of the biggest things we all experience is that sudden jerk where we flinch and have some kind of sharp pain as a result.  Many times, a sudden move creates uneven muscle tension, placing pressure on a joint that is used to being supported.  Sometimes we experience a fall where a joint is literally separated from its correct place.  The result is pain from pressure on nerves.  Some injuries are even caused by the fact that we already have a restriction that has reduced our function in a particular area.  Either way, a chiropractor is notably the most effective form of treatment.

You May Be In Need of A Lifestyle Support

There is nothing quite as satisfying as receiving natural treatment.  You don’t have to worry about the problems with dependency on medications.  The treatment can be effective and enhance your quality of life.  The Joint Chiropractic can provide great care at affordable prices.  They have plans that can fit your needs with no need for insurance.  Drop-ins are encouraged because folks at The Joint want to relieve your discomfort.  Most of their more than 370 locations are open six or seven days a week with extended hours.  Check them out today, and get back to some good activity and some beneficial lounging.
