Have you ever tweaked a muscle in your neck? Maybe you know what it feels like to injure a muscle in your lower back playing sports, at work or doing chores around the house.

We have all been there at some point. This can be extremely irritating and painful. If left untreated, a back injury can cause forever lasting damage.

More often then not, when we over extend muscles in our necks and backs we rush to the corner store or a physician & buy some over the counter mess.

There is nothing wrong with taking medicine to ease some of the discomfort, however that alone will not assist in the healing of your injury. Your trip to the store will be a revolving door.

Also, it’s important to keep in mind the medicine will lose its effectiveness over time so you will have to take a larger dose in order to feel the effects. This is why the back of the bottle says, “do not take any more than 4-6 pills in a 24 hour period.” This is an attempt to slow down that dulling affect in order to keep you on the medicine for as long as possible.

The best thing you can do for yourself when you have a neck, back or spinal issue is to make an appointment with a licensed chiropractor.

A lot of folks are weary of chiropractors because they don’t understand what chiropractors actually do. Chiropractors are back physicians: they have learned just about everything there is to learn about your back. Chiropractors will be able to provide you the best advice for treating back injuries.

There is a large amount of treatments a chiropractor may offer you, including adjusting your back and neck by applying pressure, using acupuncture or laser acupuncture, and applying heat or cold to the injured area.

Irritated muscles surrounding the injured area might make it difficult and very painful to heal correctly. Over an extended amount of time, this can cause severe damage over a larger part of your neck & back, causing you more discomfort & pain than you started with.

If what you just read reminds you of yourself or someone you know call a chiropractor you can trust to schedule your consultation as soon as possible.

After your first appointment, you will realize how helpful chiropractors are with dealing and healing the pain.
