Do You Have Back Pain From Being Active?
By Tom Herrin
Is there such a thing as being too active? The answer is usually no. There are times, however, when any of us can overdo a good thing. Pushing ourselves when we are beginning a new program of physical activity is not uncommon. We may want to make big strides, and we may do too much before our bodies are ready. As a result, we may end up letting our enthusiasm get the best of us and have back pain. If your excitement turns to back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be the surest path to being pain free.
The Back Runs Interference
Whenever we choose to do something physically active, our back will endure lots of stress. It has duties that keep it pretty busy anytime. It holds up our head as well as allows us to twist, bend, and turn. As it does all of this, it carries nerves to many other parts of the body. Anytime we perform some kind of activity that increases the amount of work it does, the muscles that support it may become strained. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It can seem debilitating with no sign of letting up. Pain medication may only serve as a temporary fix.
Chiropractors Can Help
When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you will be given an adjustment in which the spine is 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 pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. For many, it may be the start of a healthy new lifestyle as they are able to possibly heal faster and return to normal daily activities sooner.
