The other day when I was exercising at the gym I overheard a couple of gym members talking. One was complaining about the burning sensation in their lower back and the other one then responded … “ you know how it is …no pain, no gain.”
And every time I hear this saying I cringe!!
today I would like to explain why.
We really need to change our thinking about pain.[flashvideo file=http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/01.14.2014.pain.and.gain.bi-1.m4v image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/pain.gain_.jpg width=500 height=305 /]
First of all, it is something you should never, ever try to work through.
Secondly, people far too often ignore their pain and just pop a bunch of pills hoping that it will go away.
This kind of thinking suggests that their pain is caused by a lack of pain-killers in their diet.
And lastly, many people do not realize that pain is the way your body alerts you that there is a problem.
And in this circumstance, the problem is typically with your skeletal joints or your spinal joints.
If these joints are not aligned properly, they will become stiff and then they will become painful when you use them.
So, what sense does it make to use them longer or use them harder?
This will only increase the pain and inflammation and eventually your joints will become arthritic.
So, what do you do?
Well, first of all you need to stop doing those things that are causing you the pain.
And secondly, you need to have your skeletal or spinal joints assessed.
And this is where I come in.
Remember, it is my specialty to assess, examine and correct the alignment of skeletal and spinal joints.
