Nobody Wants To Be In Pain

Dr Erin adjusting female patients neckAnyone suffering with pain will do their utmost to resolve the situation to become pain-free. This usually means ingesting an ever-increasing quantity of pain medications.

But what if we told you that pain can be seen as a good thing?

Pain plays an important role in our health because it is one of the ways in which our body communicates with us. When a limit is being reached, an alarm goes off. For example, if you twist your arm behind your back and start to feel pain, your body is telling you:

Stop! You’ve reached you’re your maximum range of motion. Any further, and you’ll do some serious damage.

Consistently taking pain medication for recurrent pain such as headaches or back pain is not “curing” anything. The medication is simply silencing your body’s warning cry and fooling you into thinking that all is well. Even worse, many medications have side-effects which start causing other health problems.

Optimal Spinal Health

That’s why you’ll hear your Chiropractor say that they are more interested in what is causing your pain, rather than the pain itself. Of course, that doesn’t mean that your Chiropractor doesn’t care about your pain. They want to address the root of your pain so that the pain can be eliminated safely. Regular Chiropractic adjustments ensure optimal spinal health which, in turn, means that information can flow unhindered from the brain to the rest of your body. As a result, all the parts of your body function optimally and are able to do what they were designed to do (which includes healing).

So the next time you experience any pain — unpleasant as it is – try to remember that your body is trying to warn you and protect you. Let your Chiropractor know. They will determine the corrective care required to address the cause of your pain.
