THE CAUSES OF PAIN
The cause of back pain is frequently a structural imbalance which may radiate to other parts of the body. This imbalance is usually caused by poor posture, stress, accidents, trauma, aging or simply daily wear and tear on the ligaments, tendons and muscles which connect the skeletal frame together. When injuries to these connective tissues heal, scar tissues form which lack the elasticity and suppleness of healthy tissues. An escalating cycle of stiffness and tension ensues until pinched nerves send the back into spasms of acute pain. Sometimes the symptoms are less dramatic, robbing the body of vigor over a long period of time.
The following symptoms may manifest:
LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA
NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES
SHOULDER AND ARM PAIN
LEG, KNEE OR ANKLE PAIN
Nutritional Imbalance is another common cause of pain and fatigue. Poor eating habits, toxins in our food and pollutants in the environment may overwhelm the body’s immune system, leaving it prone to strain and aching for help.
Patients who seek Naprapathic treatments for the relief of pain, stress or fatigue are in for a very gratifying experience. First, time is taken to get to know the patient as a unique individual and a comprehensive case history is recorded. This is followed by a thorough spinal examination where tension and pain findings are recorded. Information from both of these sources is integrated into a treatment plan which is as unique as the patient himself. Finally the therapy is gently administered to enhance relaxation and stretch the specific connective tissues which are irritating the nervous system.
Nutritional and postural counseling, therapeutic exercise and modalities such as ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, heat or cold therapy, as appropriate, may enhance the results. When equilibrium is restored, there is a profound sense of relief relaxation and renewal.
