Do You Find That Long Hours of Standing Hurt?

By Tom Herrin

There are lots of things that can cause back pain.  For some, it doesn't take much because of prior injuries.  Some people have trouble identifying the source of their back pain but still have it.  For some, when they stand for long periods of time, they find that back pain jumps on them and won't go away.  It may seem particularly bad when they stand on hard surfaces.  Those who work in such environments, it is a very real problem.  If this sounds all too familiar to you and your back, a visit to a chiropractor may have you standing comfortably in no time.

The Back Has a Big Job

In order for anyone to do whatever they do on a daily basis without feeling that too much back pain, it may require a good plan.  When these long hours of standing on a hard surface takes a toll on people, it is likely that the muscles that support the spine have become strained.  When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur.  This can cause pressure on a nerve and cause pain.  If this continues, it can seem relentless.  The pain can be next to intolerable.  It may seem that no relief is in sight.

Chiropractors Provide Relief

When people go to a chiropractor with back pain, they can expect to be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its optimal position.  This can relieve the pressure from the nerve and the pain from the body.  Since it is all done naturally, no pain medications are used.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  Recovery may be faster and a return to daily activities may happen sooner.  If possible, the chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.

Regular Care May Prove Beneficial

Once people experience the relief a chiropractor can provide, they often want to continue regular visits.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that may help to make this happen.  No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary.  They are open days and evenings, weekdays and weekends at all of their more than 475 locations nationwide.  If those hours of standing play havoc on your back, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and feel back to normal tomorrow.
