Acute pain may last just a few seconds or a few days. Chronic pain can last months or even years. Pain is your body letting you know that something is not right. It does this by sending messages through your nerves to your brain. The nerves pass through your spine, protected by the spinal joints or vertebra.

How Chiropractic Care Relates to Musculoskeletal Pain

Dr Luke checking male patient for xrayThe most common response to these pains is to try and eliminate them using heat, ice or pain medication. Although these may bring you temporary relief you are interfering with the body’s response to allow the brain to let you know something is wrong. The brain is no longer initiating the appropriate response necessary to heal if you shut down the message network, either physically or chemically.

Our Chiropractor at Family Health Professionals Helensvale can restore and maintain the proper function of the delicate vertebral joints that house and protect your nerves. This allows your body the ability to heal the source of the pain. If the pain is coming from the muscles, tendons and ligaments that surround the spinal joint the body’s natural response is muscle spasms or inflammation. While these structures may need to be worked on directly by our chiropractor with a variety of techniques his primary goal is always to eliminate the cause or underlying dysfunction, namely, nerve irritation or pressure.

Restoring proper nerve flow and communication to the brain allows the body to perform the natural healing process as efficiently as possible. If the vertebra is the actual cause of the pain Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper function and range of motion and can reduce or eliminate the source of the pain directly.
