We have all been there when you are in excruciating pain. When all you want to do is curl up, take a pill, and make the pain stop. There is no question that pain relievers stop the sensation of pain. But do you know how this is done? Pain relievers shuts off your brain's ability to sense the pain, thus you don't feel the pain. Pain relievers however do not treat the cause of the pain. This is why you may need to take it every 4 hours.
Chiropractic care works much different than the pain pill model. With chiropractic care we look at what is causing the pain and we go straight to the source. The pain could be caused by a subluxation in the neck causing a headache or possibly the low back causing low back pain. Where ever the source of the pain is, our job is to find it and get rid of it. Because our bodies are habit forming people tend to subluxate in the same areas over and over. In order to prevent your body from constantly subluxating I assess my patients' activities and lifestyle to pinpoint what is exactly causing their pain. Once this is done I can make the appropriate recommendations for chiropractic care, exercises, and home care.
