Yes, beautiful people of Columbus, pain is good!
And that’s why it’s this week’s Word of the Week.
While it is no fun to experience pain, it is vital to our survival. Without pain, we would never know fire can burn, elbows can only bend one way, and that our bones are not indestructible. Pain is nature’s way of letting us know whatever we’re doing, we’re not doing it correctly.
Consider this scenario: you’re sound asleep in the wee hours of the morning and then your house’s fire alarm starts blaring! What do you do? Do you smash the alarm in an attempt to cease the loud noise? Or do you investigate to determine if there is smoke and/or fire that could cause damage to your house or you and your loved ones? Obviously, you should investigate seeking the source of the problem.
Pain in your body is the exact same thing: when it makes its presence known, it’s time to find the source of the pain and fix it. It is NOT time to silence the pain signal and then go about your business as if nothing had happened.
Unfortunately, most people cover up the pain signals by taking a pill of some sort; Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Hydrocodone..etc. That may indeed get rid of the pain but it does nothing to address what caused the pain in the first place. (And actually may cause long-term ill effects such as kidney or liver problems.)
Correcting the root cause of the pain would be a preferable course of action. And correcting root causes of problems is exactly what chiropractor Columbus do every day. One of the biggest culprits to common back and neck pain you may be suffering from is actually stemming from abnormal structure of the spine or pelvis. Structural Corrective Care Chiropractic is one of the best solutions to FIX this problem.
