Even Small Wrecks Can Cause Big Back Pain

By Tom Herrin

Many times we think of back injuries as being the result of serious auto accidents.  It may be, but it may also be the result of really minor accidents.  Those fender benders that just cause small dings can still have enough of a jolt to shake the body.  Anytime this happens, and we are not prepared for it, a back injury can occur.  Even the most minor of incidents can cause severe pain.  If a seemingly small accident ends up causing you back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may be your best source of real help.

The Back Is Hearty and Delicate at the Same Time

Of all the parts of the body that get lots of work, the back may well be the biggest.  It carries a real load.  It controls much of our movement.  It also carries many delicate nerves.  When it is given a jolt and is unprepared, the muscles that support it may become strained.  This may cause them to fail, and a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve, thereby causing pain.  It may seem minor at first, but it can grow into an agonizing experience.  For some, it may be unbearable.  Pain medication may only serve as a bandage.

Chiropractors Know Which Buttons to Push

When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you 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.  Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used.  There is no risk of addiction or side effects.  It may be the start of a healthy new lifestyle.  In some cases, the chiropractor may suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.
