Taking the Confusion Out of Your Pain
By Donna Stark
I have been known to drop to the floor and roll around dramatically screaming in pain after I stub a toe or pull a hangnail off. It can feel like the end of the world to me, even though I know better. But it just shows that there are moments in our lives when the sudden sensation of pain is deceiving, especially in regards to what is actually going on in the body. Pain is like that, isn’t it? It has a way of telling us there is something seriously wrong with our bodies while also making some things seem more dreadful than what they really are. In other words, sometimes, its bark can be worse than its bite … and that makes pain extremely hard to figure out.
Your Chiropractor Can Help
Of course, when you feel a new pain in your body you should always seek advice from a professional, and your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic is the one to see. They can help figure out what is going on with your pain, where it is coming from, and how serious the problem really is. And then they will get down to business. Let’s take a look at how chiropractic care can help with your pain and also at some of the other benefits that it has to offer.
- Reduced pain/less risk - Chiropractic care is synonymous with back, neck, and joint pain relief and may reduce your pain more safely and effectively than medications or surgeries. Chiropractic adjustments treat the source of the pain, are drug-free, and non-invasive; in fact, studies have shown that patients who receive regular chiropractic adjustments often find quick relief and long-lasting results.
- Improved health - Your brain sends communications to every part of your body through your nervous system, so it’s an understatement to say that proper functioning of this is vital for good health. Chiropractic adjustments remove the joint restrictions that may be placing pressure on your nerves which, in turn, helps to maintain a healthy nervous system. As a result, your immune system becomes healthier and stronger with every adjustment.
- Increased movement - Pain is often the great inhibitor of movement but fortunately, chiropractic adjustments can help with that. By properly aligning the spine, muscles, and joints in your body, a chiropractor can improve your range of motion, balance, and coordination and can decrease the amount of discomfort you may be feeling. Improvements in these areas make it easier to get back to taking care of your basic needs, enjoying your hobbies and family more, and living the life you want without pain.
