Pain in the ... | By Dr James

Pain. We’ve all experienced it. We don’t like it. What’s the point of it?

Pain is a signal that something isn’t right. It’s your body’s way of getting your attention, asking you to make change.

At first your body will whisper with symptoms like joint pain, stiffness and mild headaches. This is like the dashboard light coming on in your car signalling low petrol or a battery issue. When it comes to the car most of us address the reason why the light is on, correcting the cause of the problem. When it comes to our health, many of us merely ignore our body’s warning lights like joint pain and fatigue, neglecting to address the cause such as joint restriction or poor diet. When we ignore the whispers of our body, it will begin to scream for attention by way of more significant symptoms such as sciatic pain or restricted movement.

Your body can only handle a certain amount of physical, emotional and chemical stress before problems begin to arise. As a chiropractor I regularly encounter people who have made progress with their health and pain levels by eliminating certain inflammatory foods that can upset the gut and joints. Unmanaged emotional stress can also heighten our sensitivity to pain. Dysfunctional joint movement within the neck and back can be another source of pain.  Chiropractors are trained to assess and correct movement issues, especially within the spine.
