Yard Work & Gardening: Alleviate Back Pain This Summer

If you love to do yard work and garden, you're probably familiar with the aches and pains that come along with this type of work. Tending to your garden and yard can involve a lot of bending, lifting, and pushing, which can put a lot of strain on the muscles and joints in your back and result in misalignment of your spine. If you feel pain in your back after these activities over time, it can result in long-term problems. Don’t let this go untreated. At MCR Chiropractic, we provide quality care to alleviate back pain naturally and effectively.

Treating Back Pain

The muscle strain that comes from yard work may cause the muscles in the back to tighten up and maybe even spasm or swell. As this happens, the muscles can restrict the mobility of the spine and can result in misalignments of your vertebrae putting pressure on the nerves in the back. This pressure causes the nerves to send pain signals to the brain. This irritation to your nerves, or nervous system, can result in pain and possibly even disruption of signals and messages that travel throughout your body and to your brain.

To help alleviate the pain, chiropractic care at MCR Chiropractic begins with discovering your goals for care and obtaining clear objective findings from a thorough examination and consultation. From there, the most effective plan of care will be created to include spinal adjustments, manual therapies, exercises, and health education to help manage, reduce, and even rid you of your back pain completely.

Of course, as you continue to work outdoors, your muscles and joints will move back into these unhealthy positions and continue to cause pain. For this reason, it is recommended that patients who participate in these types of activities make appointments to see their chiropractor on a regular basis. As small issues arise, the chiropractor can correct them, preventing these small problems from becoming larger.
