Listening To Chronic Pain and Understanding Its Message
Feb 19, 2020

Listening To Chronic Pain and Understanding Its Message | AICA JonesboroHas chronic pain taken over your life? Our chiropractors want to help!


Enduring an ache or pain every once in a while can be common, however, when pain presents consistently and occurs in the form of migraine or even lower back pain, seeking treatment is your best course of action.

What Is Your Pain Trying To Tell You?

When pain occurs, what do you do? Take medication? Ignore it? The pain that you’re feeling is occurring for a reason, and your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Masking the pain with medication won’t make the pain disappear, so identifying the underlying cause is the ultimate goal.


It’s merely a communication system. It’s the way your body gets the attention of its owner. You.


If your check engine light comes on in your car, are you surprised after ignoring it for months that you are having to spend an entire weekend without a car due to the amount of damage it has sustained? Not to mention the cost! The same goes for your body. When pain like chronic back pain occurs, it is a signal for something that is wrong inside and needs attention.


Traditional medicine is great at reducing or suppressing symptoms. Prescription and over-the-counter medications often produce quick relief.


Until they don’t. That’s when even larger dosages are required. Until they don’t work. This vicious cycle has been part of the cause of this dangerous opioid epidemic our country is facing.

Chiropractic Is A Natural Approach to Treating Chronic Pain

Chiropractic care takes a very different approach. Pain, or other symptoms, is a language your body uses to alert you that a limit has been reached or a change needs to be made.


Creating a more productive and higher functioning nervous system can help to regulate every cell on your body allowing for better communication between your brain and the body.


If part of your spine is misaligned, pressure can be added to the spinal cord and nerve roots causing interference in communication between the brain and the body.


A series of precise spinal adjustments help restore proper spinal function. The result? Revived brain to body communications. Oh, and less pain.


If pain is presenting itself, don’t ignore the message. Your body is trying to seek help from the inside out. Our Jonesboro chiropractors can provide a holistic approach to your pain, ultimately solving the root of the problem and allowing you to continue with your life without the need for medications to manage your pain.
