Chronic pain is something that millions of people have to deal with on a daily basis. There is not a week that goes by that I do not have someone who comes in and is dealing with or has had chronic pain. That is just reality.
In understanding pain, you learn there is a difference between managing pain by treating the symptoms instead of finding the cause of the pain and treating the cause. Your body is not designed to be painful, but to be pain-free.
Pain is about Cause and Effect: what is causing your body to be painful, how is it affecting you and what do you do for treatment? These are the BIG QUESTIONS to be answered. At a Chiropractor Charleston SC, you can find answers.
Most people--about 90%-- will experience some type of pain during their lifetime. While pain may be common, it is not normal.
Chronic pain has many causes such as fibromyalgia. Also, one of the fastest growing disorders is chronic fatigue. Back pain, disc problems, disc herniations, pain or numbness in the hands or feet can also cause chronic pain.
Pain can change your life, activities, personality, social life and your emotional well-being. Pain is often misunderstood.
Some people go through life in constant pain and feel they are powerless to change this cycle. They have given up hope because they can only see a future filled with pain, medication and no way to change this. Check out this article on Chiropractor Charleston SC for a way to help change this.
Change is critical. Change is relevant. Change is within reach.

PURPOSE OF CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION
The key to the body's ability to begin to heal, function properly and maintain these two abilities lies in spinal alignment and movement recovery. The chiropractic treatment of spinal manipulation improves the brain and spine connection in the Central Nervous System resulting in the nerve signals having less interference. Once this interference is removed, your body can begin to heal and your function can begin to improve. Our bodies are the sum of their parts and improving your Central Nervous System function can improve your total health.
Chiropractic spinal adjustments are a proven treatment to help correct problems and eliminate or reduce symptoms.
Medical doctors are more frequently recommending chiropractic care to their patients. They are not always just recommending them for back pain, but to help to naturally eliminate pain that is related to variety of problems such as:
Chronic pain is a term sometimes used to refer to these disorders when they are not specifically diagnosed.

It is important to note that chiropractic care treatments can provide natural benefits without the long-term use of drugs and their side effects. This may include prevention of disease and pain.

WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTOR?
"Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die; Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live." BJ Palmer, The Founder of Chiropractic
The science of chiropractic care is over 120 years old. Chiropractors are doctors trained to specialize in the treatment of the Central Nervous System. The Central Nervous System is the body's core, its center of operation and is:
-- the first part of the human body to be formed in the womb
--the physical foundation of each person
--the system that signals the body to function (core/center of operation)
Chiropractors look to the central nervous system for any "interference" of a nerve signal or a "subluxation" of the spine to diagnose problems and plan treatment. More people are seeking chiropractic care as they understand the research on how the body works.
Why is this important? Many people refer to a subluxation as a "pinched nerve". It really means that vertebrae in the spine are out of alignment and pressing on a nerve.
Pressure on a nerve prevents it from properly signaling an organ or body part to function correctly. This is the root cause of most pain and plays a role on many conditions.
Your brain sends out electrical impulses through the nerves to generate movement and function. Think of your central nervous system as electrical circuitry.
Say you walk into a dark room and flip on a light switch and the light flickers and never really turns completely "on". Compare this to a spinal subluxation where there is interference in the nerve signal in your body. Your body function is like the light...it never really turns "on" fully and so it never functions at 100%.
Spinal misalignment can create health problems:
Cause...effect...treatment...the trifecta of the chiropractic model.
Organs not properly functioning are the beginning of disease and pain--that's why adjustments to remove interference are so critical to overall good health. (Remember: interference is the obstruction of healing.)
Removing this "interference" gives the nerve a chance to heal and send the proper signal for the body to function as God designed it. Chiropractors remove the interference through adjusting the areas of the spine that are out of alignment. You will find more information on this at Chiropractor Charleston SC.
You may or may not feel better immediately, but healing in your body begins immediately once the interference is removed.
It used to be that medical (traditional) doctors rarely referred their patients to chiropractors for care, but that is changing. Again, there is the research and the science to support chiropractic care as an effective treatment for pain and organ function.
Some of the most common treatments for back pain, for example, are the use of NSAIDS (like aspirin and Tylenol) along with more potent conventional pain medications.
Some things in life are true whether or not we believe them. When we take a medication to help us feel better, we can choose to believe we are healthier because we aren't in pain. Not true --we are only masking the symptoms.
NSAIDS can have adverse side effects and have been linked to liver damage and intestinal bleeding. (This may be correlated to the rise in autoimmune and gut issues.)
In greater numbers, both the public and medical doctors are recognizing the importance of the chiropractors' role in healing. As said earlier...the body was designed to have amazing healing powers of its own once the interference is removed.
Who you are, what you think, how you feel and the choices you make help determine your destiny. When did you last consider altering your life by how you think and act? You have the power to do this. If you want help, look for a Chiropractor Charleston SC.
