No Need to Carry the World on Your Back
By Tom Herrin
The back carries a big load. It must keep people upright in pretty much everything they do. While it is generally up for the job, when it gets a little extra jarring around, it may struggle with the responsibility of maintaining posture and carrying the body. Excessive wear, as in going to the effort to keep it stable as it is shaken so badly, can end up causing pain. If your back's effort to keep itself right ends up with pain, a visit to a chiropractor may ease that pain and put the back on a return to doing its job.
What Is Shaking With the Back?
When the back is put under any kind of stress, the muscles that support it can be overworked. This may end up with muscle strain causing them to fail to provide the support necessary. Too many times, when this happens, a joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve. This can cause pain. This pain may continue to grow without some kind of intervention. It may end up causing a nagging pain that may seem to go with them wherever they go.
Chiropractors Can Help
When people go to a chiropractor, they will likely be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulate so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain. This is done all naturally so no pain medications are used. There is no risk of side effects or addictions. This may mean a faster return to the everyday activities. In order to support continued good health, a chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
