Expect the Unexpected With Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
Much of the time, when we consider back pain, we think about accidents that may be major in nature. Those traumatic incidents, in which there is obvious cause, may cause an expected outcome. Automobile and industrial accidents are commonly perceived as the culprits as people suffer serious injuries involving the back and severe pain. Many accidents go almost unnoticed but still may result in back pain. Many times, some small event can turn into lasting back pain. If a seemingly minor incident adds back pain to the struggles in your life, a visit to a chiropractor may provide you with a fresh outlook.
The Back at Work
Of all our body parts, the back seldom gets much of a rest. It works to keep us upright and support our head. It also serves as a base from which to pivot and bend. Anytime we are somehow caused to have an unexpected and sudden movement, the muscles that support the back may become strained. This can cause them to fail to do their job and a joint dysfunction may occur. When this happens, pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It may be unnoticed, at first, but it may continue to grow until it becomes a major problem. Pain medication may only serve as a temporary solution.
Chiropractors Can Get to the Source
When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will be given an adjustment in which the pain is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its normal position. This can take the pressure off the nerve and relieve the pain. Since this is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. That means there is no risk of addiction or side effects. There may be a much faster recovery. People may return to their regular everyday activities sooner.
