Feeling Great Should Not Include Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
As the time of year arrives when we all begin feeling like we could conquer the world, we should probably proceed with caution. In my case, I usually get that urge to get out and get involved in some highly ambitious activity. This is because I see the sun shining and a clear blue sky which always motivates me. This can make us want to get out and become engaged in some activity that involves some running, jumping, or jogging from place to place. In doing so, we may end up straining our backs. If your desire to relive your youth ends up causing you back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may help change your outlook.
The Back Does It All
Any time we are physically active, our backs get involved. This is because it helps us to turn and bend. It also absorbs quite a bit of the shock we endure. The spine protects many delicate nerves that carry impulses throughout the body. When we are active without helping our muscles that support the spine to be prepared, we risk straining these muscles. When this happens, they can fail to be able to do their job. A joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It may be small, or it may be a major discomfort. Whichever is the case, it can cause some sleepless nights with little reprieve.
Chiropractors Get the Back
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 normal 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 side effects or addiction. It can be a great start to a healthy new lifestyle.
