Do You Feel Like You Mopped the Floor With Your Back?
By Tom Herrin
In this day of modern conveniences, we have plenty of things that can make our workload easier. Vacuums that do the entire house by themselves as we sleep still amaze me. Some of us who are older may remember Rosie the robot from the cartoon series The Jetsons. She did all of the housework as they relaxed. While we have a lot of modern gadgets, we haven't quite gotten that far. We still have to do some labor that can end up causing back pain. If slinging a mop at your house has your back giving you fits, a visit to a chiropractor may have you feeling like Jane Jetson.
The Back Holds It All Together
Anytime we do work, the back is a major player in the activity. It is the anchor from which our arms move. It helps to give us the form we have as we stand and hold our heads up. When we do something that requires some physical stress, we may strain the muscles that support the spine and cause them to fail. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. What we may think is just muscle aches may end up being a constant pain for which we can find no reprieve. Pain medication may only serve as a bandage.
Chiropractors Can Get It Right
When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you will 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 pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. Healing may be faster. For many, it may be the beginning of a healthy new lifestyle. It can be a great feeling of independence from pain.
