A Miss on Exercise May Cause Back Pain

By Tom Herrin

Committing ourselves to a routine of exercise is good practice.  It can help to burn calories as well as strengthen muscles.  It can also help us to maintain better flexibility.  With all of our good intentions, there are still times in which we can make a wrong move or overdo our activity.  When this happens, we can end up with an injury to our back.  It is one of those things that can take us completely by surprise.  If you get a surprise back pain as a result of working out, a visit to a chiropractor may put you back on the path to a quick recovery.

The Back and Strain

Your back can do a lot of work.  It manages movement.  It keeps the body upright, and it supports the head.  It also carries many nerves when you exercise, it still must carry quite a bit of the load if that activity causes the muscles that support it to become strained.  When this happens, they may not be able to do their job.  A joint dysfunction may occur, and pressure may be placed on a nerve causing pain.  It can cause plenty of misery.  Pain medication may only serve as a temporary fix.

Chiropractors Can Make Adjustments

When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you will be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position.  This can take the pressure off the nerve and relieve the pain.  Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  Healing may be much faster.  The chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.  They may suggest exercises that you should avoid to prevent future injury.

Once they experience the relief a chiropractor can provide, many people want more.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that are affordable.  No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary.  They are open days and evenings, weekdays and weekends at all of their more than 600 locations nationwide.  If you overdo your workout and end up with back pain, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and have a better workout tomorrow.
