Most individuals visit the chiropractor because they are in pain. In your initial phase of care, the main goal is to relieve symptoms by restoring lost motion, releasing muscle trigger points and postural education. . This may require several visits per week for a short period of time..
Pain unfortunately is a very poor indicator of health. It is a grand warning signal but in fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. As you proceed in your care, symptoms should subside quickly.
