What is the purpose of pain?
Pain causes you to pay attention to something that’s not working right. It’s a warning that a limit of some type has been reached that the body is not equipped to handle or cannot adapt further. It’s a not-too-subtle way your body alerts you that a change is required.
In many ways, pain is a good thing. It’s only when we misinterpret the pain or make it go away without tending to its underlying cause that we get into trouble.
Many people begin chiropractic care because of a painful symptom. Naturally, we show our compassion, but as chiropractors, our primary interest is in the underlying cause of the pain. Numbing the body with drugs to hide the pain may be convenient, but in the long run, expensive. We take a more natural approach.
It begins with a thorough examination. Plus, we’ll ask about the various physical, emotional and chemical stresses you may be experiencing.
If you know someone who regularly takes pain medication to suppress their ability to sense pain, urge them to consult a chiropractor. We promise to help identify the underlying cause of their problem and offer safe and natural solutions to their body’s cry for help.
