It’s not surprising that the biggest reason for the first clinic visit is because of pain which can be very debilitating and literally bring life to a halt. Time off work and loss of earnings can be a critical outcome together with the pain causing disturbed sleep, depression, frustration, fatigue and loss of concentration. Sometimes it is of sudden onset or it can exist for months or even years.
Pain lasting for more than three months is termed ‘chronic’. It is the way the brain alerts the consciousness to injury or potential tissue damage through sensory pathways that flow towards the brain from the spinal nerves. Gentle realignment of the joints can significantly reduce or even eliminate pain and the benefit is that chiropractic does not use drugs or surgery, it is totally non-invasive.
