Catching Up Can Catch Up With You
By Tom Herrin
The summer is a great time to have a little change of pace. After all, it is vacation time for a lot of people and using those extra days off -- and the longer day with the additional light -- becomes a pretty good incentive to think about those extra projects that have been in the back of the mind for so many people: painting around the house, filling in those holes the dog dug, or building that gazebo pictured on the page the catalog always opens to first. Jumping in to such projects can be fulfilling and energizing. The snag comes in when folks (maybe you) put in that extra time to get more done and suddenly realize they were not as physically prepared as they thought. If back pain catches you off guard like this, a visit to a chiropractor can put you back on top of that project.
When people put in long days doing physical labor with little or no prep, it is pretty easy to strain the muscles in the back that support the spine. This leaves the spine more vulnerable to injury. Because the spine encases the central nervous system, a joint dysfunction can cause pressure to be placed on a nerve. This causes that pain that seems to intensify with each passing hour; it may feel like there is no reprieve.
Chiropractors Relieve Pain Without Medication
The kind of relief chiropractors provide is natural. They usually manipulate the spine so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position. This takes the pressure off the nerve, allowing the pain to subside. Since it is done without medication, there is no danger of addiction. It also allows the body to heal faster. Natural pain relief provides a great feeling of control.
