Trips and Slips May Cause Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
We have all seen individuals who, in our minds, have serious back or neck problems. It is obvious by the way they walk or hold themselves. We may imagine that they received an injury in some sort of catastrophic accident. Whether it is from an automobile, industrial, or athletic accident, it looks painful. The truth is that some things that cause back pain may be what we would consider to be really minor. Some of these incidents may seem to go unnoticed until we have back pain later and begin to reflect back on what we did. If you have back pain and have to think back to identify the cause, a visit to a chiropractor may help you to forget the pain as well.
The Back Has a Lot of Nerve(s)
Much of what we do physically depends on the back. The spine carries a large number of nerves to other places in the body. It also keeps us upright and helps us to bend and turn. When we have some kind of a fall, even slipping on some kind of spill, 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 may be the kind of pain that never seems to let up. Rest may be hard to find. Pain medication may do little to help .
Chiropractors Can Feel Your Pain
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 best position. This can take the pressure off the nerve and relieve the pain. Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. Healing may be faster. At times, the chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
