Those Extra Vacation Days Can Be Killers
By Tom Herrin
Just about everybody looks forward to summer. For most people, it is some of that long awaited time off. For others, it is that time when days are longer, and they can get more done. In the end, more often than not, people will use some of that additional time to get on some of those projects that may have been put off all year. Almost everyone has that pet project they have been itching to start. It could be painting the trim, laying stones for a new picnic table, or putting up a fence for the dog. Unfortunately, it often goes bad when people put in some long hours so they can hurry enjoy the results of their labor. Too many times, those results are the pain from a back injury. If this is the case with you, a visit to a chiropractor can put you back in the driver’s seat.
Why Back Pain?
When people suddenly put in long hours doing something they are not accustomed to doing, it is pretty easy to overdo it in an effort to hurry up and finish. This tends to overwork the muscles of the back, which may compromise their ability to provide support for the spine. A joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve. Wishing for a short-term pain won’t help. It usually continues to get worse as time goes on. The longer it is left alone, the more bothersome it is likely to become.
Chiropractors Can Get To The Point
An adjustment is normally the starting point with chiropractors. They gently manipulate the spine so that the injured joint is restored to its best position. When this happens, pain is relieved as pressure is taken off the nerve. Since this treatment is all natural, no pain medication is needed, and there is no risk of addiction.

When people discover the feeling they get from this natural treatment, they are often interested in preventative maintenance. At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that can work for anyone.
