Ready-Set-Hurt With Back Pain

By Tom Herrin

Does it seem like whenever you get ready to do some real work, you end up with back pain?  It is not uncommon for us to injure ourselves in pursuit of some well-meaning task.  Whether it is weekend chores or periodic cleanup, it doesn't take much to have pain.  Even though most of us feel that we could once do whatever it is, as time passes and age catches up, things may change.  If you get excited about getting things done only to find yourself with miserable back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may have you feeling like your old self again

The Back Takes It All On

One of the problems is that we may tackle some tasks for which we are not physically prepared.  If we have not been involved in any kind of activity on a regular basis, our muscles get a little out of shape.  When we suddenly take on larger physical jobs than we are accustomed to, 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 can be debilitating with little or no relief.  Pain medication may only serve as a temporary fix.

Chiropractors Can Make Good Repairs

When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you 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 can be a great feeling of freedom.  Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  The chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.  Healing may be much faster, and you may be able to return to normal daily activities sooner.

Some Choose Regular Visits

Once they experience the relief a chiropractor can provide, many want more.  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 aren't quite up to what you were at one time and have back pain, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and feel great tomorrow.
