When Exercise Causes Back Pain

By Rachel Carver

Whether you run on the treadmill or lift weights, proper technique is very important. Keeping your spine in a neutral position while exercising helps you work your muscles, not your joints.

However, despite our best efforts, back pain can happen after exercising. All it takes is landing off-balance or bending the wrong way to pick up a weight to send a sharp, surprising pain up your spine.

If your last workout left you with back pain, don't despair. Your neighborhood Joint Chiropractic clinic is ready to get you back in action.

Facts About the Back

The back is made up of many joints, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Ligaments can be sprained. You can strain muscles and rupture discs. Joints get irritated. All of these factors can cause back pain.

The back helps us sit, stand, and exercise. Its complicated structure increases injury risk during our daily movements. A workout can strain back muscles, leading to a joint dysfunction, placing pressure on a nerve. This pressure can cause pain.

Find Relief at the Chiropractor

The back pain you experience after a workout might send you reaching for medication. But pain medication will only give you temporary relief. Research supports spinal manipulation as a safe, natural, and drug-free option that can address the root cause of your back pain. A chiropractic adjustment can decrease and, in many cases, eliminate the need for pain medication entirely.

Your local Joint Chiropractic clinic team can return the injured joint to its proper position with a spinal adjustment. This removes nerve pressure and pain. They can also recommend exercises to strengthen your back to prevent future injury.

Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care

A chiropractic adjustment can quickly get you back to the gym. But many people incorporate chiropractic care into their overall health and wellness routine after their first visit. Chiropractic adjustments improve range of motion and flexibility. They can improve sleep, increase energy, and help you perform your best during your next run or CrossFit session.

Don't let your back pain from your last workout keep you sidelined. The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is ready to give you the care you need. The Joint team will develop a treatment plan to fit your unique situation.
