Heavy Traffic May Do a Back In
By Tom Herrin
If anyone ever mentions back pain, the first thought that may come to mind could be some kind of accident. Could be something at work, at the home, or in the car. Those are commonly causes of back pain or back injury. They are not, however, the only causes. Other situations that result in some kind of jarring of the body may also be responsible for back pain. Those who drive regularly in heavier traffic are well aware of some of the problems that may come from that white knuckle driving in which their foot is constantly reacting. If your commute has your back in a painful situation, a visit to a chiropractor may have you living a better life.
The Back and Commuting
When people drive in traffic that seems to be endlessly stopping, starting, and jerking people around, it can really overwork the muscles that support the spine. They may become strained and fail to be able to do their job. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. This pain may be obvious immediately or begin slowly and build over time. Either way, it can cause lots of misery.
Chiropractors Can Find and Treat the Source
When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they will normally 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 and the pain is relieved. It may truly feel as if a weight has been lifted off. Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. A return to normal daily activity may be possible sooner. The chiropractor may suggest some exercise that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
