Many people experience chronic pain, which lasts for a number of months, or recurrent pain without knowing what is causing it. Dealing with this pain with medication does not resolve the underlying reason for the pain; thus, you will never truly rid yourself of it. A better solution is to talk with your family chiropractor about the pain you are experiencing, as chiropractors can often find the problem and provide the therapy needed to minimize your pain or even eliminate it.
One cause of chronic pain is when a misalignment of your spine is putting pressure on nerves. Use of spinal manipulation to realign your spine and remove the compression will correct this problem. Maintenance visits to your family chiropractor and exercises to strengthen the muscles that keep your back straight will keep the problem from returning.
Chronic headaches are another issue that your family chiropractor can help with. Things such as stress and improper posture can result in tension and misalignment in your neck, which can keep your brain from operating properly, resulting in headaches. Neck issues can easily lead to other back pain, as well, because your body tries to compensate, and thus other areas end up misaligned, as well.
