Tylenol, Asprin, Advil…which is best for your aching back?

As it turns out, there’s a drug-free alternative that’s better than the best pain reliever for back pain.

 

Your spine is incredible. It’s responsible for bearing your weight, protecting your spinal cord, holding your ribs in place to protect your heart and lungs, and remaining flexible enough to allow you to move.

But most people don’t give their spines a second thought…unless, that is, they’re feeling back pain.

An estimated 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And most of those people will turn to an over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication for quick relief.

What is the best pain reliever for back pain? And are medications really the best option?

You’ve heard the adage, “no pain, no gain.”

But does that include medicine? Namely, do chiropractors hurt?

 

For those who experience a range of discomfort—from back and neck pain to sciatica and more—chiropractors provide instant, long-lasting relief. However, while their treatments are often highly effective, some fear the process. And the biggest concern they voice is, “Do chiropractors hurt?”

If you’re considering receiving a chiropractic adjustment but you’re wary of the process, this article is for you.

They may be small, but trigger points can cause a lot of pain.

Find out why and how trigger point massage can provide lasting relief.

 

You’re rubbing a sore muscle and suddenly flinch in pain. Ouch! Why does that one tiny spot hurt so much?

Chances are, you’ve developed a trigger point.

Trigger points and other myofascial pains are benign, but the pain they cause can be intense and debilitating. Luckily, trigger point massage is a simple, non-invasive way to release those tight spots and alleviate your pain. Let’s take a closer look at how trigger point massage works and what you can do to prevent trigger points from forming.

But first, let’s answer your most burning question, “What is a trigger point?”

Are you suffering from the sharp, shooting leg pain of sciatica?

Put down the Tylenol! A sciatica chiropractor can provide lasting relief.

 

Sciatica is—quite literally—a pain in the butt.

But rather than visiting your primary care physician (or, worse yet, suffering through it), seeking chiropractic treatment can not only alleviate your symptoms but also treat the underlying cause of your sciatica.

Unlike traditional medicine, chiropractic treatments encourage the body to heal itself. Chiropractors often use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and medical massage to effectively heal most sciatica patients without the use of drugs or surgery.

Chiropractors can be essential for relieving pain.

But how often should you get a chiropractic adjustment to get the most out of their services?

 

Millions of Americans receive chiropractic care in this country each year. This includes everything from neck adjustments to medical massages. Even if you’ve never been to see a chiropractor before, you probably have at least a concept of what to expect. But even those receiving treatment might be asking how often should you get a chiropractic adjustment?

Before we can begin to answer that question, we have to cover the basics.

For anyone looking to live a healthier life, cardiovascular exercise is key.

Here are some great low impact cardio exercises you can try.

 

Cardio workouts are aerobic exercises or any activities that get your heart rate up and keep it up for a prolonged period. Running, cycling, jumping jacks, and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) are some common high-impact cardio exercises.

Cardio workouts are key to staying in good health and having a strong metabolism and heart rate, but running and HIIT workouts can be too high impact for people struggling with back and joint pain or those just starting their workout regimen.

That’s where low impact cardio exercises come in. Chiropractic adjustments properly align your spine and skeletal system, and regular exercise is the key to maintaining those adjustments.

Low impact cardio workouts give you the same benefits without endangering your joints. Read on to see why low impact cardio and chiropractic adjustments make a great match.

While massage can be a helpful tool in your recovery, it’s important to find the right kind of massage performed by the right person.
