Back Pain Could Be Just a Car Ride Away
By Tom Herrin
One saying that is pretty familiar to many of us is to the effect that nothing is certain but uncertainty. It often seems that whenever things are going smoothly, a rough ride is just around the corner. Too many times, health is that way. When we feel that we couldn't be better, we end up with some kind of pain. While back pain may be one that you have been able to avoid, a car ride down a pretty rough road can shake up the best of us. If such a ride has you suffering with back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be the solution to your problems.
The Back Never Rests
Even though we may believe otherwise, the back is always on duty. Anytime we have movement in our upper body, the back must act as a base from which to turn and bend. It also keeps us upright and supports our head. When we are shaken around quite a bit, the muscles that support the spine may become strained and fail. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It may be miserable and rob us of any quality rest. Pain medication may only serve as a bandage.
Chiropractors Can Put You Back Together
When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you can expect to be given an adjustment in which your spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. This can take the pressure off the nerve and relieve the pain. It is all done naturally, so no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. Healing may be faster. A return to normal daily routine may happen sooner. The chiropractor may suggest some exercises that may help strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
