Your body is designed to move, and all the movement in our bodies occurs through joints. When those joints don’t move properly, we often experience pain. Think about this - except for one wandering cranial nerve, every nerve in your body comes out from your spine. Most leg, hip, or arm pain is from a pinched nerve, so chiropractic care is more than just dealing with back pain. If you have a nerve problem, you have a spine problem. Your nerves control everything!
Pinched or irritated nerves cause pain in your body. The pain is like a warning light on your dashboard, it’s a sign that something needs attention in your body. Unfortunately, often times it hurts, and it can hurt a lot!
Most of the time your pain is a physical problem. So, why do we so often try to fix it with a chemical? If your pain is in a joint or in your spine, taking pain meds or anti-inflammatories will only hide it for a few hours. Do you want to cover up your pain, or find the cause and fix it? Read the back of the pill bottle. “If your pain gets worse or doesn't go away in 7 days, consult your physician.” Try seeing a chiropractor.
If your pain is going to go away by itself, it will in 3 or 4 days. If not, you have a physical problem that needs a physical solution. That's chiropractic. Approximately 20% of my new patients get referred out to other treatments. If I can help using chiropractic, we will talk about my findings and get to work.
Remember, the first step is coming to be seen at the Neal Clinic in Pensacola.
