Even Housework Can Be a Pain
By Tom Herrin
Many of us do some kind of what we would consider to be housework. These are the everyday things that cannot be delayed. It could be sweeping, mopping, moving furniture around, or something similar. Even though we may think of them as trivial, they can be much more. They can be just as likely to cause back pain as anything else. I have done my share of these things, and I know firsthand what can happen. If helping to clean up at your house has you down with back pain, a visit to a chiropractor may make you feel more productive in no time.
The Back and the Mop
Even though we may not realize it, the back is pretty involved in every kind of physical activity we perform. Besides allowing us to bend, twist, and turn, it acts to stabilize us as we move our arms to do work. Performing such activities as sweeping or mopping can still cause the muscles that support the back to become strained and fail. When this happens, a joint dysfunction may occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve causing pain. It can be a miserable feeling from which you are unable to escape. You may find yourself walking the floor at night due to the inability to rest.
Chiropractors Can Make Adjustments
When you go to a chiropractor with back pain, you will be given an adjustment in which the spine is gently manipulated so that the injured joint is restored to its proper position. This can take the pressure off the nerve and relieve the pain. Since it is all done naturally, no pain medication is used. There is no risk of addiction or side effects. Healing may be faster, and you may return to your normal daily activities sooner. Many times, the chiropractor will suggest some exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint. It may be the start of a healthy new lifestyle.
