Back pain is one of the most common ailments in the world, and the most common reason opioid pain killers are prescribed.

Research has consistently shown that chiropractic care is one of the most effective, safe, and inexpensive treatments available for back pain and nearly all joint pains.

Chiropractic care relieves the tension in the joint which helps it move better, improves overall range of motion, and helps reduce pain. Improvement is also seen in endurance and strength of the surrounding muscles.

As we say in chiropractic, “Motion is Life!” Pain reduction and increased motion are great reasons to get adjusted, but add to it the improved muscle function, organ function, and overall nervous system function and you’ve got an intervention that can’t be beat!

Joint pain can cause nervous system interference, and nervous system interference can cause joint pain. Is your back pain causing bad posture, or did your bad posture cause the back pain?

Do you have the strength, endurance, coordination, and mobility that you desire? If not, don’t just stand there – do something! Remember: motion is life, so get moving!

The Takeaway: Get adjusted regularly. The amount of care you need is relative to the amount of daily stresses you encounter and your current level of health expression (some people need more, some less). Take care of what you’ve got, and do the regular maintenance on yourself to enjoy the health that you deserve!
