Symptoms: The Fire Alarm in Your Body

When we experience pain, we often associate it with an injury that occurred recently. When you fall, you scrape your knee, and pain ensues.

But what about pain that begins slowly and that worsens with time? Symptoms are rarely (if ever!) born out of thin air—they take time to develop. Have you ever heard the analogy, “The straw that broke the camel’s back?” While the camel was able to carry hundreds, if not thousands of straws without issue, one single straw was eventually enough to break its back. That’s because the camel was experiencing distress and dis-ease over time, and it was finally expressed when it couldn’t handle anymore.

Our bodies also function in this capacity.

What Are Symptoms?

How Chiropractic Can Help

When we work with patients, we dive deep to uncover the root cause of their symptoms. Just because you may be experiencing pain in the shoulder, foot or knee, doesn’t mean that this is where the problem lies.

The root cause of your pain and symptoms could actually be in the spine—think of it this way: Your brain sends signals to every part of your body through the spine. If there’s a disturbance in the spine, the message won’t arrive as it should—it could get damaged, misinterpreted, or not arrive at all. If your brain is trying to send a message to your knee, but the message isn’t delivered due to nervous system disturbance, your knee can’t function ideally, which can lead to problems. Over time, pain can develop. And that problem in your spine has just become a problem in your knee.

It’s our goal to find the disturbances in your spine and free them up, restoring mobility and function exactly as your body was meant to be. Chiropractic care also includes lifestyle advice, nutritional advice and strategies to help you deal with every day stress. When we eat well, exercise, manage our stress and live with an optimally functioning spine that’s regularly checked and adjusted, we are in a more adaptable state to cope with life’s physical and emotional challenges. Chiropractic care has therefore been known to help with the management of a variety of symptoms, including back pain and sciatica, neck pain and shoulder stiffness, headaches and migraine prevention, tension and inability to relax and more.

If you’re currently experiencing symptoms of any kind, we urge you to contact our practice to book an appointment. The sooner you address your symptoms, the sooner you can get back to feeling your best.
