What Do You Consider Pain To Be?
What do you actually consider pain to be? When we typically think of pain, we assume it is associated with slamming your hand in a door or some sort of injury, trauma or action that produces the sensation of discomfort. Our culture assumes that chiropractic care is strictly for pain relief. Furthest assumption from the actual truth. The first “pain” that you might experience may not be a pain at all. The first sign of a spinal problem is actually the first symptom you have. A symptom being: lethargy, constipation, IBS, allergies, migraines, infertility, reflux and the list goes on and on. Symptoms should be the first “PAIN” that is recognized. It would be easier if we ended the symptom with the word pain: lethargy pain, constipation pain, IBS pain, allergy pain, migraine pain, infertility pain, reflux pain…and so on.
Symptoms Are Pain And Pain Are Symptoms
They are one and the same. Symptoms are pains and pains are symptoms. Even the definition of SYMPTOM (a sign of the existence of something, especially of an undesirable situation…) states that any known symptom is painful due to the fact that it is undesirable. Too often we simply get used to a symptom and it becomes a part of our life and we accept it. When this happens, you are learning to live with pain. Why not learn to live freely and without the presence of dysfunction within the body. No one was born to be sick.
Take The Road Less Traveled
The easiest way that your body will let you know that dysfunction is present will be through red flags, alarms and any other way to communicate internally that something is amiss. Your body lets you know via SYMPTOMS. When a nerve is unable to supply the proper demand of energy to the visceral (cells, tissues, glands, organs) the body begins to “act out”. The nerve supply is hindered via a subluxation that exists and limits the potential of the visceral it is supposed to coordinate. Address the symptoms at the root of the cause. Look to the spine for the cause.
