What To Do When Back Pain Hits You Out of the Blue
Usually when we are experiencing any sort of pain or discomfort, we can almost always look back to the exact source or reason as to why it is occurring. For example, we may know that a crick in the neck was due to poor sleeping posture the night before. We might be able to recognize that we lifted a heavy object in an improper manner that ended up causing an ache or pain in the lower back area. However, sometimes aches, pains, and stiffness end up occurring seemingly out of the blue, with no clear source or generating spot on the body, that could explain its sudden appearance.
As mentioned in a great article by Spine Health, it is fortunate that there are ways to treat these sorts of phantom pains, even if they seem difficult or downright impossible to trace. One of the most effective and successful ways to treat chronic pain, even when it’s difficult to tell where it is coming from or why it is occurring, is through the use of chiropractic care and treatment methods.
Chronic pain, regardless of its origin, is often caused or at least exacerbated by a variety of key factors. Inflammation in the ligaments and soft tissues of the body tends to cause great amounts of pain, as does stiffness and immobility in the joints of the body. A licensed doctor of chiropractic can examine the body and may actually be able to determine the exact cause of the pain that is occurring in your body. Even if the cause or origin is not so easily pinpointed, a doctor of chiropractic can still determine how to best apply force and pressure using manual manipulation techniques in order to relieve pain and restore some or even most of your movement back to the joints that may have been affected by the stresses and strains that come with dealing with physical aches and pains.
If you have been experiencing phantom pains for a while now, with no clear diagnosis, it may benefit you to come into your local The Joint clinic in order to start getting treatment that works for you and your specific needs. You don’t even need to make an appointment, and the flexible hours of The Joint locations across the country allow you to simply walk in for a consultation during the evening or even on weekends. From here, your chiropractor can start working with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
