A Back Pain Misconception
Why do people suffer from back pain? Why do I see a chiropractor when I have back pain? Excellent questions! People see chiropractor’s for a multitude of reasons, and at the top of list unfortunately is back pain. However, we say unfortunately very lightly because once we are able to help you and tell you the real reason why you see a chiropractor, then we grow as a stronger/healthier community. Remember back pain will be the last sign and symptom to show up (unless you get hit by a plane, run over by a steam-roller, or something catastrophic).
Why do people suffer from back pain? Well, we go through something that we like to call “Life.” During life you go through many stressor’s and your body is able to adapt to the demand. When your body encounters something that it is unable to adapt properly to, your body starts to defend itself. Your body starting to defend itself is the signs and symptoms that you begin to develop (fatigue, depression, menstrual issues, immunity issues, etc, etc). These sings and symptoms are your actual beginning of back pain, however they do not manifest in that capacity. Instead you think that an organ is not working right, a gland is not working right, etc. What do we do? Take some dope (meds) and hope that our symptoms will go away. Then after some time and your symptoms appear, then disappear, and you go through this roller-coaster ride. Then and just then your back pain appears.
Why do I see a chiropractor when I have back pain? People think back pain, they think chiropractor. People think chiropractor, they think back pain. Can chiropractic help with back pain? You betcha! Can chiropractic help you when your first signs and symptoms were appearing (fatigue, depression, menstrual issues, immunity issues, etc, etc)? You betcha! In fact when those first signs and symptoms appear, chiropractor’s address your cause of your “back pain” and do not chase symptoms. Remember back pain will be the last sign and symptom to show up. We can get you out of back pain as fast as your body allows, and then go for the healing process! The healing power is so much more than dope!
