Video Transcripts- Will My Pain Go Away On Its Own?
Will the pain go away? Sometimes it will. Sometimes it comes and it goes, and when it's coming and going it's giving us that thought process, "I hope it goes away". "Maybe I should take something for it", which will actually prolong the healing process. Many times the pain will go away, but comes back worse or stronger and lasts longer. It's the same issue. Something's happening inside your body. Would you want to find out when the problem's small or when the problem's big? Check it out sooner. It makes a big difference.
Physiologically, what's happening inside the body? Pain comes from inflammation. If it's nerve related pain, and most of the time it is, whether it be a joint or a nerve feeding a muscle or a nerve coming out of the spine, and most people think of chiropractors as neck and back pain, only 10% of the nerve deals with pain. 90% deals with function. The function of the kidneys, the liver, the gallbladder, the stomach, the heart, the lungs. Every cell has a nerve supply, and if only 10% deals with the pain, why should we manage the symptoms when we should really be chasing the problem?
