Sprucing Up the Landscape May Wear on a Back
By Tom Herrin
When it comes time to do a little work making the outside of a home a more attractive, it may not come without a price. Digging, raking, and trimming can be enjoyable, but it can also be taxing. When people plunge into an activity they are not physically prepared for, they often are taken somewhat by surprise. There is more to being prepared for such by just getting a few garden tools together. If your enthusiasm for outdoor beauty ends up causing you back pain, a trip to a chiropractor may have you gardening with a smile on your face in no time.
Work and Back Pain
Just because someone works, it does not mean they will have back pain. There are other variables. When people do something such as gardening with hand tools, if they are not well prepared, they can strain the muscles that support the spine. When this happens, a joint dysfunction can occur. This is when a joint has some slight movement from its ideal position. This places pressure on a nerve. The rest is all too familiar. Even slight pressure can cause pain. It often continues to grow worse with time. It may become so nagging that it seems no relief seems possible.
Chiropractors Can Relieve Pain
When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will usually be given an adjustment. This is when the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured or restricted joint is restored to its optimal position. This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain. Since this is done all naturally, no pain medications are used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. The chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint. Recovery is often faster so that a return to regular daily activities is sooner.
Regular Visits May Help With Maintenance
Once people experience the relief that a chiropractor can provide, they often choose to continue visits. At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that can make this happen.
