Carrying A Load May Make It Hard To Carry Ourselves
By Tom Herrin
You have probably heard for a long time about the correct way to pick up things or carry things: Use your legs, don’t use your back. Some wiseguy may have tried to encourage a shortcut, that being in a hurry and doing it wrong just once couldn’t hurt. He was wrong. Our vast knowledge of certain laws of anatomy tends to get in our way when we are trying to save time. In our minds, it is a little like the five-second rule. The problem is it may only take one time of doing something the wrong way to wipe out all the times we performed the same activity correctly. If you have pain in your back due to something like this, you are not alone. Just use better discretion now. It is time to see a chiropractor.
Lifting And Carrying Create Havoc With Our Lower Back
Our bodies are not designed to do just anything, but they can perform a lot of work. When we do lift or carry incorrectly, we run the risk of causing a joint dysfunction. This results in nerve irritation. The end of this chain of events for us is pain. It is that pain that may be a nagging ache that just won’t let up. Muscles are placed in a bind and become stiff. Our smoothness of movement is gone, and we begin to feel like our abilities are limited. The tendency to favor a stiff or painful back can lead to more injury.
The First Line Of Treatment
Chiropractic treatments are the most successful form for most back injuries. A chiropractor can use natural methods to relieve pain and begin the healing process. He or she may treat with a chiropractic adjustment. This may be followed by some suggested exercises that can strengthen your muscles used for support. The end result of such a routine can be much better health all around. Since this can be done without medications, it is a double victory.
