Within recent years, the medical community has come to a shocking conclusion about the nature of pain. It used to be believed that pain was only a received sensation, e.g. the prick of a needle hurts due to the actual puncture of the skin. Today, it is understood that pain is actually a sensation given by the mind and body to prevent further damage from occurring. When a needle is inserted, it sends signals to the brain which translates those signals into what we know as pain, a message to our conscious to stop whatever it is we are doing.

This knowledge plays an immense role in how doctors go about remedying that pain. For instance, chiropractors understand that this pain response as well as other muscular responses, while designed to protect the body, can actually sometimes limit its healing process. For this reason the pain and muscular damage must be relieved to aid in proper healing. A lot of chronic pain is the result of chronic inflammation, and the evidence is quite strong that diet can contribute to increased systemic inflammation. But your diet is also one of the best ways to reduce it.

When you go to a chiropractor because you are in pain, it’s important to know how to talk about the level of pain that you are in. The more you are able to convey the level of pain, the easier it will be for your chiropractor to provide assistance. A pain scale can be one of the easiest ways to help with your explanation.

mobility

Not being able to move the way you used to can start to effect the way you live your life. You may be in a lot of back pain and it only gets worse when you move. After a while, you may start to change the way you do things. You may not be as active and this can actually make matters worse because your muscles weaken. You need a strong back and core in order to prevent back pain, so being active is one of the best things that you can do for yourself.

Visiting the chiropractor can help you to get a lot of your mobility back. After sitting for extended periods of time, your spine begins to compress. It’s proof that gravity works because the spine starts to sit on top of the lower spine and this can start to cause a lot of pain. It can limit the amount you move without having to wince in pain.

see a chiropractor

Many people only visit a chiropractor when they are in pain and this can be a mistake. The body is capable of handling a lot and pain is the body’s way of saying that it has had enough. The goal should be to live pain-free on a regular basis and this means going to the chiropractor on a regular basis.
