Chronic pain can be from many diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, etc. This discussion is about musculoskeletal pain.
If this goes on much longer real damage can result to joints, muscles, connective tissue and nerves. Medical tests, such as x-rays, CT, MRI, can lead to a diagnosis of arthritis, bursitis tendonitis, degenerative joint or disc disease but the real question is, what's causing it and how do you fix it? More drugs? Surgery? Physio? Massage? How well do these treatments really work? Is there a better solution?
CHIROPRACTIC of course! This discipline is the science, art, and philosophy of biomechanical analysis of the human (and animal) nerve, and musculoskeletal systems. The brain and nervous system is the master controlling system of the body. To put it simply, chiropractors look for pinched nerves! Joints and bones can get out of alignment, interfere with nerve function, and cause all kinds of problems. Inflammation will cause a list of painful problems that is too long to mention here. If you have an electrical appliance at home that isn't working properly, what's the first thing you check? Is it plugged in?! Is the power on? That's what chiropractors do. I've been doing it for 37 years and it works. Millions of people around the world know that it works.
The neural net that controls your body must be functioning properly or you will have pain and dysfunction. Our complex nervous system must be allowed to function properly without interference. Chiropractors remove this interference by making sure the skeleton is balanced under the force of gravity. Gravity is the key! I have come to understand over the years that my treatment improves the patient's ability to cope with the force of gravity.
More to come on my next installment about you and your struggle with gravity on planet earth!
