Pain is our body’s way of letting us know that there is a problem. It is a sensation triggered by the nervous system making us aware of injury of potential injury to our being. This sensation has been critical to our survival over the millennia, however, it can become problematic when sustained over prolonged periods of time without relief .
Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most common and treatable forms of pain seen today. This is pain that affects the muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, and joints of the body. The cause of musculoskeletal pain is damage and inflammation to one or more of these structures.
How does this happen? Muscle tissues, bones, and joints can be damaged by wear and tear of daily activities. Things such as trauma (jerking movements, auto accidents, slips/falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, direct blows to the muscle), postural strain, repetitive movements, overuse, and prolonged immobilization can result in damage to the tissues of the body.
Too many people today suffer unnecessarily from pain and inflammation. Let us help you find a way back to a pain-free lifestyle. At Health First Chiropractic Center we utilize a drug-free, non-invasive approach to address pain patterns with special attention to the musculoskeletal system.
