Yard Work Never Seems to Cease; Back Pain May Follow
By Tom Herrin
As the seasons change, there always appears to be work to go along with it. It may be one of the real downsides of being with a homeowner or tenant. Unless you live in an apartment, that work is out there waiting. At times, you may feel you just did this, but there are often limbs to be pruned and shrubs to be trimmed. If you have suffered a dry summer, like we have so many times, you will have a few good days of work to do. Many of us try to cram those into even fewer days and end up overdoing it. If getting ready for the next season gets to your back, a visit to a chiropractor may shed new light on life.
The Back Can Be Overworked
Even though our backs are pretty strong and do a lot, anything can get too much use. If we do work for which we are not physically prepared, we may easily strain the muscles that support the spine. This may cause them to fail. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It may seem debilitating and relentless. We may end up walking the floor with discomfort. Pain medication may only serve as a temporary fix.
Chiropractors Can Put You Back Together
When you go to a chiropractor, you can expect to be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. When this happens, the pressure is taken off of the nerve, relieving the pain. It is all done naturally, so there is no risk of addiction or side effects. You may be able to return to regular activities sooner. The chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
