The Pain Paradox

Pain can be very helpful and informative as it lets you know, when and where there is a problem in the body. However, sometimes the pain can persist after an injury has healed, because the brain has learned to constantly feel pain. This pain can also move to other areas of the body, where there was no previous injury. This causes pain to become a problem in itself, as it is no longer a helpful indication of what is happening in the body. Chiropractic care can help to relieve the pain before it becomes chronic.

Although pain is a natural and normal way your brain indicates that there is a problem or a potential threat in the body, chronic pain is not informative. The brain has begun to decide that your body needs to be protected, and therefore emits a feeling of pain based on your thoughts and perceptions of pain. Discovering why your brain is creating pain by figuring out what was happening to you when the pain started can help you retrain your brain and relieve the pain. Chiropractic care can aid in the process of retraining your brain.
