Vacations Can Be Hard on Backs
By Tom Herrin
Every summer, lots of people seek out that opportunity to get out of the rut and find some new adventure in the form of a vacation. It is always nice to just get away. People tend to look for something different and adventurous. Who doesn’t enjoy doing something new and different? There can be a lot of excitement in finding that new pursuit that looks so good in pictures and sounds really easy. Where the rubber meets the road, however, is the reality of just how unprepared most people tend to be when they take on a new challenge. Whether the activity is rock climbing, hiking to a new camping spot, or heading to the beach, the body works best when it is prepared for such a new endeavor. When there has been little or no conditioning ahead of time, the muscles may be unable to support the frame properly. If that rock climbing outing finds you in a situation where the climb or the landing causes back pain, the real enjoyment could be a trip to a chiropractor for some real relief.
It is always best to train physically. This can keep the muscles in better condition to provide support for those joints. Back pain usually happens when it is unexpected. Something creates strain on the muscles, which causes them to fail. This leaves the joints with too little support. The result is a joint dysfunction which places pressure on a nerve. This pressure causes pain. All too often this pain becomes nagging and makes life pretty miserable.
Chiropractic Treatment Is All Natural
Chiropractors generally perform an adjustment in which the joint is gently manipulated so that it is restored to its proper position. When this happens, the pressure is relieved from the nerve. Relief is usually pretty fast. No pain medications are needed, so there are no chances of harmful addictions or side effects. Many times, chiropractors will suggest exercises that help strengthen muscles that are designed to support the spine or other joints.
Regular Visits Can Be Part of A Great Maintenance Plan
Once people experience the relief provided by chiropractors, they usually choose to have treatments on a regular basis. This can help keep those joints loose and working as they should. At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans for everybody. No insurance is necessary, no appointments are needed.
