Having Pain Is No Game

By Tom Herrin

Everyone needs some form of recreation.  As people live increasingly busy lives, they often seek ways to get out, clear their minds, and get more exercise at the same time.  The problem often comes in when their enthusiasm for their new activity leads them to playing more in order to improve their skills. Whether it is golf, tennis, bowling, or whatever, it is pretty easy to overdo something.  This overwork of some parts of the body may end up in pain. If this happens to you, the best way to get on with the game is a quick visit to a chiropractor.

Common Injuries

When people get involved in a new game that they seem to enjoy, they have a natural inclination to try to improve their skills. Since it is new to them, they frequently experience overuse of a joint.  This is often compensated as a burden to the spine. When this happens, the muscles that support the overused joint become strained.  This leaves the joint vulnerable. This can cause a joint dysfunction in which pressure is placed on a nerve resulting in pain. This pain may continue to worsen as people pursue skill development.  

Chiropractors Put Things Back Together

When people visit a chiropractor, they are usually given an adjustment.  In this, the injured joint is gently manipulated so that the joint is restored to its proper position.  This can take pressure off of the nerve relieving the pain. No pain medications are used so there is no chance of addiction or bad side-effects.  This may mean a faster return to normal daily activities. This also means less lost time from work. Chiropractors may suggest exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the joint to avoid future injuries.  This may be the start of a new outlook on life.
