Those Fall Colors Can Turn Into Pain

By Tom Herrin

Just about everyone loves fall colors.  When the leaves turn, it seems to signal something is different about life in general.  While they can be beautiful to look at, they can also mean that a lot of work is ahead.  It seems that some of that work is a little like that string that people pull out of that little bit of material; the more they pull, the more the string keeps on coming.  Raking leaves can be a little like that.  It starts out appearing to be simple enough, but sometimes turns into unexpected back pain.  If this happens to you, coloring a path to a chiropractor may be the real beauty to be found.

Enthusiasm May Need to be Buffered

Many times, when those leaves begin to fall, people know it is time to get busy.  Whether they use a blower or rake, their eagerness to get after the job may be overshadowed by a lack of conditioning.  When people jump into a task such as these without some prior conditioning, it doesn’t take long for the muscles in the back to become strained from exertion.  This can leave the spine without enough support for the right kind of movement.  A joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is applied to a nerve which, in turn, causes pain.

Chiropractors Can Restore Joints

When people visit chiropractors, they are usually given an adjustment, which is a way of gently manipulating the spine.  This can allow the injured joint to be restored to its proper position, taking the pressure off the nerve.  This kind of relief may be more efficient than many other kinds of treatment.  No pain medications are used so that the body can heal faster with no risks of addiction or side effects.  The process is entirely natural.

Regular Visits Can Provide Good Maintenance

Many people choose to have regular visits once they experience this natural relief.  This can help keep the joints as they should be.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they understand your busy schedule and have plans that can work for you.  No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary at any of their more than 380 locations nationwide.  They are open weekdays and weekends, days and evenings to relieve your pain.  Enjoy those fall colors as much as you like, but if back pain gets in the way, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today for relief.
