Not Just Muscle Pain
Chiropractic is not just muscle pain. Some in our society think that chiropractic is just for relief of muscle pain or just any sensation of pain in general. Muscle pain is an issue and will be dealt with; however there is an underlying causative factor as to why there is muscle pain. A subluxation occurs when a vertebrae applies pressure on a spinal nerve, this “pressure” on the nerve creates dysfunction within the body. Dysfunction causes the messages from the brain to the muscles to become distorted, resulting in improper firing sequences. Your body does this for protective measures to at least have some functionality available. You see, that nerve with pressure on it not only has motor control (which is geared towards your muscles) but it also has autonomic control. Your autonomic nerves are regulating and controlling your adrenal glands: kidneys, heart, lungs, etc. Even with pressure upon a nerve, your body is still designed to function, regardless of the sensation of muscle pain!
Visiting the chiropractor for just muscle pain is like robbing a bank and just taking the free pens! Chiropractors focus on correcting the cause of your problems, not just the suppressing symptoms that are apparent. Muscle pain is an issue that can come and go while the real signs and symptoms can continue for fester for a prolonged period of time. That is why regular chiropractic adjustments maintain the vital communication from your brain to your body to allow you to function at optimal potential and stay healthy! So, the question is what are you concentrating on? Are you more focused on the symptoms or what is actually causing the problem? By addressing the problem not only do the symptoms disperse but your body in general is allowed to heal with proper connection to all your organs, cells, tissues, and glands. Regardless if it’s muscle pain or just a curiosity, you live your life through your nerve system. Every human interaction you have is processed through your nerve system. It is a chiropractor’s responsibility to make sure that system is functioning at 100%
