Relying on My Cumming Chiropractor to Keep My Back from Giving out on Me

I have a back routine. When I do overtime at work when we have a lot of work to do around the house that requires a lot of lifting and bending, I go see my Cumming chiropractor at the first twinge of discomfort. I do not wait until my back pain gets bad. If you have a bad back, you know how it is. You get those first twinges, then it gets worse as the day goes on. By the next morning you are calling off work. I do not let it get like that. I go and have an adjustment to head off the worst of the discomfort.

Irritated nerves due to spinal subluxations can be quite painful. They can burn, tingle, ache, feel like electrical jolts and more. I have had cold hands and odd feelings in my shoulder and arm due to thoracic outlet syndrome. My posture is far from being great. My wife points it out to me all the time. I start to walk more hunched over as my back starts to hurt more. She will actually call the Cumming chiropractor for me when she sees me start to hunch forward in pain while working around the house.

I enjoy our gardening and landscaping. I like my job too. However, it can take a toll on my back. I keep going by seeing my chiropractor to keep my back from the worst of the pain. Sometimes adjustments are like a switch that shuts off the burn, tingle or ache. It works great on those electrical jolts of pain such as sciatica pain shooting down into your big toe. Chiropractors have a lot of therapeutic tools to use to bring pain relief without the need for any drugs or painkillers. I will take an occasional ibuprofen for inflammation, but other than that I am good.
