Even a Little Tree Trimming May Cause Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
The coming of warmer temperatures may put a smile on our faces, but it also means that preparing for it may add some work. Who needs that, right? Whether we want it or not, most of us have to do some serious work in preparation for everything to turn green. That always seems to happen in the blink of an eye. One of the biggest jobs for many of us is to start trimming trees. In my experience, it has never been all that pleasant. No matter how we try to handle it, we will likely have to do some working while reaching over our heads. This may appear simple enough, but it can really be a pain in the back. If trimming up your trees gives you back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be just the ticket to better health.
The Back Does It All
No part of our body has a bigger job than the back. It never gets time off. It provides stability for much of our movement. Anytime we use our arms, our back is involved. When we do some kind of work reaching over our heads, it may have to do a significant amount of work to keep us stable. It may end up straining the muscles that support the back. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve. This can cause pain that may be extremely annoying. Searching for rest may seem impossible.
Chiropractors Deal With Back Pain
When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will usually be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its normal position. This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain. It can be a great feeling. It is all natural so no pain medication is used. This means there is no risk of addiction or side effects. For many, it may be the start of a healthy new lifestyle.
