Many people begin chiropractic care because of an ache or a pain. Pain can be distracting, debilitating, irritating, or annoying. Pain can be chronic, acute, intense or intermittent. Pain can be sharp or dull. And pain can be localized or general.
Pain may be a pain, but pain is not the problem!
If there’s a problem, it’s the meaning we attach to the pain.
When chiropractors meet patients who are in pain, our first thought is that they must have exceeded some physical, chemical, or emotional limit to which they can no longer adapt. So, while we’re interested in the pain, we’re even more interested in what was the underlying cause of the pain. Did it just happen? Has it been present a long time? What circumstances brought it on? Plus, what change(s) should be made to avoid this in the future?
