Don't Let Holidays Create Back Pain For You

By Tom Herrin

When it is time for all those homecomings when families reunite, there is a lot of hustle and bustle.  Everyone pitches in to do their part.  Someone usually gets the job of retrieving all of things that have been put away all year.  The idea of having all of that to use is wonderful.  The problem comes in when someone actually has to reach into those out-of-the-way places to get out the decorations.  It normally involves reaching and lifting in an unbalanced position.  This shifts the weight unnaturally, often leaving the back to bear the strain of all the work.  Too many times, this ends up causing pain.  If this happens to you, the best thing to do is balance your life by making a trip to a chiropractor.

The Load Hurts

When people reach and lift, it is usually trouble waiting for a place to happen.  The muscles are unable to find a substantial base from which to operate, causing them to have to do more work than they are designed to do without help.  This leaves the spine unsupported, opening the way for a joint dysfunction to occur.  When this happens, pressure is applied to a nerve.  The nerve causes pain.  This pain may tend to stay with someone without letting up.  It can end up being debilitating.

Let the Chiropractor Provide Some Support

Chiropractors can do wonders to provide natural relief.  This enables the injured person to experience a faster healing since there are no pain medications used.  They are more likely to be able to return to regular activities sooner.  Chiropractors may suggest some exercises that will be able to help to strengthen the muscles needed to provide support for the injured joint.  This can be a good part of an overall healthier lifestyle.

If It Works, Keep Doing It

Once you get that relief that chiropractors can provide, you will want to maintain that better health.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that can do whatever meets your needs.  They are open weekdays and weekends, days and evenings.  No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary at any of their more than 390 locations nationwide.  If the holidays end up creating back pain for you, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and get real relief.
