Pain Signals

It is important to listen to your body and the pain signals it sends. Any pain experienced is a signal something is wrong.

All too often we reach for a pain killer and ignore these messages. By masking the symptoms with drugs we overlook the cause, and only prolong the problem.

Common Causes of Pain Signals

  • Behind each spinal bone are nerve rich facet joints, and these are a common cause of back pain. When these interlocking bones aren’t moving properly, it leads to discomfort and pain.
  • Between each spinal bone are soft, pulpy discs. Any trauma causes these discs to bulge, and the resulting pressure on surrounding nerves also leads to discomfort and pain.

  • Do Nothing – symptoms may get worse
  • Bed Rest – may just prolong the problem
  • Drugs – often only masks the symptoms
  • Surgery – this should be a final last resort

Chiropractic Treatment

By focusing on your spine and restoring its function through specific adjustments, stability can be returned and pain relieved. The discs and soft tissue that form such a vital part of your spine have a better chance of healing once nerve involvement is reduced.
