Quick Pain Relief but Follow Up with a Chiropractor
For many of us, our activity level goes in waves.
When things are “in season” we’re hitting it hard. But then when the season is over, we hang up our boots, and do something different (or nothing at all) until the next season begins.
For example, we’re in the middle of hunting season now. And many of you probably noticed that when you’re dragging that deer out, or carrying a quarter of an elk on your back, that those joints that haven’t been used heavily in a long time are aching pretty bad the next day!
In today’s tip, we take a look at an easy way to get some temporary pain relief, check out the short video below from Dr. Shayne Durbin, a chiropractor in Billings.
No matter what joint is causing the aches and pains, ice is a fantastic way to dull the nerves so you aren’t as uncomfortable.
Using the paper Dixie cup method, you can get the coldness right to the problem spot and quickly cool it on down.
These aches and pains are completely normal for joints that haven’t been used in a while. It’s very similar to the aches and pains that you feel after working out for the first time in a while; your body just needs to strengthen and become accustomed to the use.
But if the pain won’t go away, that’s a good indicator that something more serious is wrong. That’s when you should seek out a Billings Chiropractor to help realign the bones.
