Pain, decreased energy, stiffness, tightness and tension are common symptoms we see here in the clinic everyday. Symptoms are signs in the body that point to an underlying issue. You can think of these as the fire alarm signal. The loud warning there is a problem and it’s time to make some changes. It’s likely these problems didn’t come out of nowhere and have been developing slowly over time in less conspicuous ways. This means the problem likely took time to develop, so it will likely take time to heal and recover as well. When looking at the research, we know that where pain and symptoms present, doesn’t always mean that is where the problem lies. The body is one interconnected system, no one part works alone.
When it comes to your specific symptoms, investigation and examination are needed to plan the best course of action for your issue. Don’t ignore symptoms, they are signs telling you dysfunction is occurring and it’s time to seek help. Here at Laurelhurst Chiropractic, we are here and ready to assist. Make an appointment today!
