Thumbs Up to Relief
Many people go to a Chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - unfortunately, pain is only one indicator of health. In fact, at times other than acute situations, pain and other symptoms frequently will 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? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain can be one of the last things to appear. The good news is that when you begin Chiropractic care, quite frequently, pain is also on of the first symptoms to disappear!
