All of these things bring us joy and fulfillment. As long as we have health, that is…
Health is our greatest asset. It allows us to do what we want with who we want when we want. If we lose our health – everything else loses value. Everything else is affected in a negative way. Without health, life becomes miserable.
One of the greatest thiefs of health is back pain. Back pain affects our sleep, our ability to move well during our day to day activities, our ability to get comfortable while reading a book or watching television. The good news is that in most cases – back pain is completely treatable and correctable.
This type of injury is typically acute. Some sort of trauma happens – whether its a sports injury, an auto collision, or a slip and fall. The soft tissues are affected – the muscles, ligaments and tendons are ripped to a certain degree and this leads to aches and pains in the back. The extent of these injuries is typically 6-8 weeks.
If you are dealing with back pain for longer than 6-8 weeks, chances are that there has been a shift in the spinal bones of the back. This is called a subluxation – a misalignment of the spinal bones that is causing stress on the nerves. This will cause pain and tightness in the surrounding soft tissues. The good news is that in most cases, subluxations are treatable and correctable with specific and gentle chiropractic adjustments.
