Although chiropractors are very good at relieving back pain, they are more accurately described as a brain or nervous system doctor, rather than a back doctor. Pain is the last sign to show up when a misalignment of the spine has occurred, and it is the first thing to disappear during treatment.
For example, when a fire alarm rings in your home, and you turn off the alarm, have you fixed the problem, or have you simply silenced the warning? What happens if you only silence the warning signs and don’t find the cause? The same is true with your body. If you have a migraine, and you “turn off” the pain with drugs, have you found the cause? Or silenced the warning? What is your body trying to tell you?
Brain-Based Chiropractic Care works to find the cause of the stress (the “fire”) and remove the interference in order to balance the body, and to help your body to function properly.
Ask your chiropractor to check you and your loved ones for imbalances that may be holding you back.
