Thumbs Up to Relief
Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. Though we don’t like to focus on pain, the main goal in the first phase of care is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them — that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, only 30% of your nervous system is dedicated to perceiving pain! Pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
Take some advise, don’t wait for those symptoms to show up. Call today to request a spinal check-up today.
