Many people suffer from aches for years, convinced that the discomfort is “normal.” These aches include sore shoulders, throbbing muscles, foot pain, stiff joints, and headaches, as well as back aches.
We all hear jokes about back aches and other musculo-skeletal pain being the natural result of aging. But is that really true?
Does that mean there is nothing to be done about aches and pains?
Temporary relief may not last
Hot pads, cold packs, and over-the-counter pain medication may help long enough for you to get to sleep at night or get through an uncomfortable workday.
Painkillers and pain relief methods don’t actually make the pain go away. Pain medication has side effects, just like other drugs, particularly if you use it regularly.
Pain is not inevitable
First, make an appointment and let your chiropractor know what types of discomfort you are feeling.
Aches and pains aren’t “too small to worry about” or “normal things that everyone has to suffer through.”
We can help!
You may notice a change for the better after your very first treatment. Some patients, depending on the injury, may require several treatments to feel the difference. Injuries that accumulate over time will need time and regular treatments to heal.
After starting treatment, you may discover improved functionality and a larger range of motion. You may not even realize what you’ve slowly lost over the years.
If pain has been affecting your sleep, you may also find you’re enjoying better quality sleep.
You may be surprised to see how good “normal” feels.
Find out what chiropractic care can do for you.
In conclusion, if you have an ache, a pain, a strain or a limited range of motion right now, it doesn’t need to be with you for life.
