Chiropractic Care Can Help Repetitive Stress Pain
By Stephen R. Farris
Do you ever feel pain in your shoulders, elbows, and wrists? Maybe occasional back pain as well? It could be due to the type of work that you do. People who do the same movements throughout the day, such as those folks who work in a warehouse, on an assembly line, construction work, or in the data processing industry, may be feeling pain due to repetitive use of their back, shoulders, arms, and wrists.
The pain usually starts with stress on your tendons and ligaments, often radiating to your muscles and sometimes your joints. Repetitive stress pain could cause swelling in the affected area, or produce strains and/or sprains.
Prescription medicine is usually prescribed to help with pain relief, or you may end up purchasing over-the-counter medication to seek comfort. However, if the pain persists, it may get to the point you become reliant on prescription medication and/or OTCs, leading to addiction.
So if you are experiencing pain due to repetitive stress, and you don't want to depend on medication for pain relief, there is some good news. Go see your local chiropractor.
With chiropractic care, you'll receive an all-natural approach to pain relief through chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments are noninvasive and non-addictive, using a gentle, hands on approach to adjust your spine and different joints in your body. This method reduces restrictions on the joints and lessens inflammation, while improving your movement and function. Other benefits from chiropractic adjustments include:
- Improves joint motion and coordination
- Relief from joint pain
- You'll notice better flexibility and your range of motion
- Decreases inflammation
- Improves your mood
