Working Overhead Can Be a Painful Experience

By Tom Herrin

When people work with their hands, it can be rewarding.  There is something about putting something together or repairing something that makes it seem as if there is some creating going on.  While this may be the case, when working overhead, the level of difficulty seems to change quite a bit. Changing a light may be a simple process, but changing a light fixture is another thing entirely.  It only takes a little while to find out that holding the arms up as one works overhead can become a less-than-desirable experience. If you end up with back or neck pain from working over your head, a trip to a chiropractor may put you at ease.

Unusual Activities Can Hurt

When people do things that are out of the ordinary, the body may have difficulty compensating.  Working overhead can place a strain on muscles that usually work in a different way. When these muscles tire quickly, they tend to be easily strained.  This leaves them with less ability to support the joints they are intended to help. The joints can be unprotected, which may result in a dysfunction. This can cause pressure to be placed on a nerve and cause pain.  

Chiropractors Can Relieve Pain

When people visit a chiropractor, they usually receive an adjustment in which the injured joint is gently manipulated.  This restores the joint to its optimal position and relieves the pressure. When the pressure is relieved, so is the pain.  Chiropractors may also suggest exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that are needed to provide support. Since this is all done without pain medications, there is no risk of addiction or subsequent side effects.  Recovery is often faster, allowing people to return to their normal routines with less time lost.
