A slight pain in my back started out small, but began to grow larger over time. I wasn’t exactly sure how it happened, but I know once it became noticeable, I tried to get rid of it. I took some medicine, used ointments, and even tried some herbal supplements. Since there was nothing I could do to stop the growing pain in my back, I had to stop my home remedies and see a Cumming chiropractor. The chiropractor determined that the cause of all my trouble was a simple pulled muscle.
I couldn’t remember pulling a muscle, so I figured that it must have happened in my sleep. I’ve heard of some crazy things happening while people are sleeping. A friend of mine dislocated a shoulder while he was sleeping, and he didn’t even fall out of bed. Once my own father rolled out of bed and didn’t wake up. He just stayed asleep until the next morning and didn’t realize that he had fallen until he tried to turn off the alarm clock and realized that it was above him.
The muscle healed quickly and my back was back to normal. I decided to do an experiment. I put a camera next to my bed so that I could record myself while I was sleeping. I wanted to see how I might have pulled a muscle in my sleep. After monitoring 8 hours of footage, I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary that would have resulted in a pulled muscle. I guess it was something that just happened that one time. I’ll keep an eye on my sleeping habits to make sure that it doesn’t happen again. If it does, I can go to the chiropractor again. The pain will most likely heal on its own with time, as long as I don’t do anything else.
