A Good Shaking Can Mean Bad Back Pain

By Tom Herrin

When most of us think about someone with back pain, the image of a major auto accident comes to mind.  If it is not that, we may envision someone getting injured in a work-related accident.  Those are not the only kinds of things that may be the causes of back pain.  Even some more minor incidents can still create some real misery for anyone.  That trip on a rough bike trail may go bad once you end up being shaken around considerably.  If your outing with a few family members turns from great fun to back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be what it takes to have you back to a smooth ride.

The Back Manages Lots of Movement

When we move around, our backs play a big role in controlling that movement.  The back supports the head and serves as a stable base for many other kinds of movements.  The spine protects lots of delicate nerves as they carry impulses throughout the body.  Any time we get shaken up quite a bit, we risk straining the muscles that support the spine.  When this happens they may fail to be able to do their job.  A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve, causing pain.  It can rob us of any rest we may need.  We may end up walking the floor as we are unable to remain still without pain.  

Chiropractors Can Make a Difference

When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will be given an adjustment in which the 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 natural, so no pain medication is used.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  The recovery process may be much faster and a return to regular activities may occur sooner.

When they feel the relief a chiropractor can provide, many people enjoy it and want regular visits.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that are affordable.  No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary.  They are open days and evenings, weekdays and weekends at all of their more than 600 locations nationwide.  If you have back pain from some unexpected shaking, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and enjoy that outing tomorrow.
