College May Be a Pain in More Ways Than One

By Tom Herrin

Memories of college days can be a mixed bag for a lot of people.  There may have been plenty of fun activities, some of which they would likely never try again.  There were probably late nights and friends. What many people may choose to forget are the times when they spent long hours studying intently.  Some of these became a burden physically as well as mentally. It may be a very forgettable memory. When people spend long periods of time focusing on something such as books or other study materials, they can end up with a pretty good pain in the neck.  Assuming it will simply go away on its own may not be the best answer. If long hours of concentration sideline you, get back to those activities faster with a visit to a chiropractor.

The Real Deal

When people spend a long period of time focusing on something that involves sitting and looking and focusing, the muscles that provide support for the neck can suffer from a lack of movement.  This can cause a strain in which the muscles fail to do their designated task. A joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is applied to a nerve and causing pain. It can be quite uncomfortable and interrupt concentration.  Many times, people don’t have the time to wait until it can resolve itself. Sometimes it never will.

Natural Pain Relief Can Mean a Faster Recovery

When people visit a chiropractor, they are usually given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated.  This can allow the injured joint to be restored to its normal position, This can take the pressure off of the nerve and relieve the pain.  Since it is all natural, no pain medications are used. This means there is no risk of addiction and no side effects. It also means there is greater likelihood of a faster recovery.

A Maintenance Plan Can Help Promote a Healthier Lifestyle
