Does Your Dog Cause You Back Pain?

By Tom Herrin 

Dog lovers are all around, and who can blame them?  There is something about a dog that can warm the heart and brighten the day.  They all need to have the opportunity to go for a walk each day, and that is when some of the problems come in.  It is not that they intend to be trouble, but they are pretty curious about lots of things.  As a result, when you take them out for a walk, they tend to wander everywhere.  If you happen to be on the other end of the leash, you may find yourself dragged along for a while.  This could be a potential cause of back pain.  If your dog walking you has you ending up with back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may put a little more joy back into your outings.

The Leash and Back Pain

When you spend much time being pulled around on a leash, your back may take a significant amount of stress.  This pulling can strain the muscles that support your spine.  When this happens, they may be unable to provide the support they are designed for.  A joint dysfunction may occur in which the pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain.  It can be nagging and seemingly endless.  Pain medication may only mask the problem.

Chiropractors Can Help

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 or restricted joint is restored to its proper position.  When this happens, the pressure is taken off of the nerve, and the pain is relieved.  Since no pain reliever is used, it is all natural.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  You may be able to return to your normal routine sooner.  It could be the start of a healthy new lifestyle.
