The number one reason people go to the Chiropractor is because they have back pain. Some 16 million adults — 8 percent of all adults — experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result, are limited in certain everyday activities. Back pain is the sixth most costly condition in the United States.
How does getting a Chiropractic adjustment help with back pain?
Let’s first talk about why so many Americans suffer from back pain. The biggest reason is due to lifestyle and inactivity. Humans are meant to move and our spines are designed for movement. The average American adult now spends about 6½ hours a day sitting. 6 AND A HALF HOURS A DAY! This can lead to fixations and improper movement in the spine and that can lead to pain.
Here at the office, we see so many people that say things like “I just bent down to tie my shoes and my back went out.” Why does this happen? When you sit a lot or are on the computer for long durations your posterior muscles turn off and your anterior muscles shorten. Now you have an imbalance in your body so when you go to make a simple movement it can go into spasm. Also, the discs in your spine have limited blood flow. You decrease this blood flow when you are not active or moving. This can lead to decreased nutrition to the discs and cause fixations.
The main job of a Chiropractor is to restore proper movement in your spine. When You get adjusted you are getting motion into a joint that is stuck. An amazing added bonus is the neurological “good feeling” that is sent to the brain after an adjustment is given. This is really the long-lasting effect of a Chiropractic adjustment.
Should you go see a Chiropractor?
The best way to determine that is to ask yourself some questions:
Do I have pain that is not going away on its own?
Do I have headaches?
Do I feel tired or have little energy?
Has my sleep been off?
Do I want to recover from workouts or activities faster?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are definitely a candidate for Chiropractic care.
