Thumbs Up to Relief
Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain or have some type of symptom. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms to start feeling better. Chiropractic Adjustments along with certain therapies may be prescribed to help with this relief portion of care.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to decrease during treatment. even though the underlying condition could remain.
