Chronic Pain
Does your daily routine include adjusting to some sort of nagging pain? You are given one life to live. Why would you want to spend it in pain? Chances are, if you do not do something about it, it will get worse. Especially if it is a degenerative condition, do not "let it go." It will obviously get harder to repair the more it degenerates. Here are some facts about chronic pain and what you can do about it.

Doctor it only hurts when I Do This
The comical response is, "So don't do that!!!" If what makes "it" hurt is standing, sitting, or especially, breathing, we are in trouble. For back pain sufferers, all these things and many others are painful. Back pain sufferers are forced to change their lives when they are "down in the back". Favorite activities become memories and busy people can be stopped dead in their tracks by back pain.

Just Thinking About Headaches is Depressing
Talk about a downward spiral! Most people would agree that being in pain is upsetting. One type of pain, in particular, creates a mental felling of helplessness. That pain is headache pain. It's terribly difficult to determine which comes first, the headache or the distress. What's certain is, once the headache starts, the distress is sure to follow. This added stress frequently increases the pain that increases the stress, thus creating a vicious downward spiral, when your head hurts, it's hard just to think straight. Headaches that are frequent or last for days, sometimes with no relief, easily cause depression.

Are You Locked Out of a Healthy Spine
Have you ever gotten up one morning, tried to stretch, and felt like some part of your back or neck was just "stuck"?


Have you ever leaned over to pick something up, stretched toward the item and your body just "stopped" before you completed the reach?

-how about-

You're in your swing playing tennis or golf, or going up for a layup on one side of the basket and your body just "quits" or "catches"?

It is sometimes easy to tell when it's time for a chiropractic visit. That "stuckness" that you feel may be a locked out vertebra. Bones in your spine may have, by injury, result of bad habit, or even genetic weakness, managed to move out of normal position. This effects normal body balance and function. This spinal fixation can create pain and muscle spasm, direct and indirect effects on the nervous system, and inflammation.
