When Exercise Causes Back Pain

By Rachel Carver

Chances are a family member or friend has told you about their back pain at some point in time. Back pain is shown to impact up to 80 percent of people during life. It is also the second-most common reason for a visit to the doctor's office.

We often associate back pain with injuries or falls. But other things can lead to back pain, including exercise. Regular exercise is an important part of maintaining our health and wellness. But if you do find yourself with some back pain after a workout, a visit to your neighborhood Joint Chiropractic clinic can get you going again.

The Back Always Works

The back stays busy. It helps us walk, bend, and supports our neck and head. It also carries many delicate nerves to the rest of the body.

While working out, we can accidentally strain the muscles supporting the spine. This can cause a joint dysfunction, placing pressure on a nerve. This pressure can lead to sometimes severe pain that might send you toward the medicine cabinet. However, medication only provides temporary relief.

How Chiropractors Help

Chiropractors -- licensed medical professionals -- have the training to find and treat the root cause of your back pain. A chiropractic adjustment gently manipulates the spine, restoring the injured joint to its optimal position. This adjustment relieves the nerve pressure and the pain.

This natural approach eliminates the need for pain medications. Research supports the use of drug-free options such as chiropractic care to treat back pain. The epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse has increased natural treatment recommendations among many healthcare professionals.

Your chiropractor can also recommend exercises that can help you strengthen your back and core. From proper lifting techniques to keeping your spine neutral while exercising, your chiropractor can give you the tips you need to decrease the risk of additional back pain.

Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care

After visiting The Joint Chiropractic clinic, many people incorporate this care into their health and wellness routine. Benefits of regular chiropractic care include:

  • Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • Faster recovery times
  • Better blood circulation
  • The loosening of tight muscles

Sometimes, getting motivated to start your workout is half the battle. Don't let back pain put the brakes on your motivation.

Head on into The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find some relief and get back to your exercise program. With more than 600 clinics across the country, The Joint can give you the care you need where you are. Their affordable prices and walk-in visits make care accessible to everyone.
