The Years Can Add up on Your Back

By Tom Herrin

Even though many people today have jobs that do not require heavy lifting or hard physical labor, the body still takes quite a bit of abuse over the years.  Simpler things such as driving and standing and sitting at a computer still do a pretty good number on the body. The knees and feet are often obvious. In the case of the back, sometimes the wear can go relatively unnoticed until a problem suddenly shows up.  The muscles may fail from their lifelong work, and pain may become the order of the day. If back pain catches up to you after the years, a visit to a chiropractor may bring back the feeling from the good old days.

Aged Backs Can Cause Discomfort

As muscles do their jobs, they may suffer from excessive use and wear quite a bit.  They often become strained from the daily grind and fail to be able to their jobs as efficiently.  When this happens, the joints are not supported as well. A joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is applied to a joint.  This can result in pain. With these strained muscles, the situation cannot fix itself. Pain may become a companion to that aging back.

Chiropractors Can Restore Joints

When people go to a chiropractor, they usually are given an adjustment in which their spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position.  When this happens, the pressure is removed from the nerve and the pain ceases. The treatment is natural so that there is no risk of addiction or side effects. Many times, chiropractors will suggest some exercises that may improve the condition of the muscles that provide support and help prevent repeat injuries of the same kind.  This usually means a faster return to normal activities and enjoying life. This can all be part of promoting a healthy lifestyle.
