Does Back Pain Keep You Up At Night?
By Tom Herrin
We have enough reasons to keep us up at night. We worry about things we can’t help, we watch too much television, we get involved in reading, we become sidetracked on some issue. At least we can deal with most of those. If we have nagging back pain, we may have no options. Simply going to bed to rest may not even be possible. When you have the kind of pain that prevents you from even being still, there will be no rest in sight. If you have found yourself in this unpleasant situation, a visit to a chiropractor may be the only reprieve you can get.
What Is The Root Cause Of That Pain?
Sometimes our body takes a beating. I mean we are under stress in many of the things we do. This causes our muscles to be stressed as well. Under these circumstances, it may not take much for us to develop a joint dysfunction. This places stress on a nerve. The result is pain. And it is not the kind of pain that will go away. We may be stuck with it if we don’t get some kind of treatment. This is where we need the chiropractor to enter our picture.
A chiropractor can evaluate us and make a determination as to exactly how to proceed. Most of the time, a chiropractor will perform an adjustment. This is a manipulation of the spine. It allows this joint that has been under stress to be repositioned into is normal, or optimal, alignment. One treatment do the trick, but many times a few may be needed. The spine didn't necessarily become misaligned overnight, it won't necessarily be fixed with just one adjustment. Chiropractors will seek to relieve your pain in the least invasive way. They try to avoid pain medication. They use natural methods as much as possible. They may even suggest some exercises you can do to help yourself.
