What Does It Mean to “Throw Out My Back”
Oh no, I probably will “Throw out my back” if I do that, said no one ever (hopefully). The expression “Throw out my back” is generally used in a catch-all term to classify some immediate sharp and focal pain in our lower back region. It is not associated with us actually throwing something out, such as the garbage but usually involves some sort of acute low back pain. So, what actually happens to my body when I “Throw out my back?” A number of different reasons could have caused the incident resulting in usually one outcome. The outcome is the pinched nerve, also known as subluxation, also known as nerve interference. Your outcome can result in having the muscle, tissue, ligament, tendon, disc doing something that it shouldn’t be. When you have dysfunction in your body, well your body will let you know. Hence, “Throw out my back” results in acute low back pain.
I “Throw out my back” all the time and just pop some pain killers and am ready to go in a day or two. That’s scary. All of a sudden when we think the pain is actually gone we believe that we are back to normal. Unless your body is clear of nerve dysfunction then you are ready to rock n’ roll again. Your body is only clear of nerve dysfunction after seeing a chiropractor and receiving specific adjustments. Here is why. Nerves have nine primary functions. One of those functions is sensory (sensory transmits the sensation of pain). Nerves only transmit 1/3 of pain. Nerve tension can and does exist without pain. Even though you “Feel Good” and those pain killers took the edge off, you are not out of the blue just yet. Have your nerves checked for dysfunction so that your body heals and adapts to the “Throwing of the back incidents”.
