Chiropractor Talks Common Causes of Pain & How to Get Relief
Moving away from pain and into health is something that Chiropractors take very seriously! Low back pain, for example – a common condition treated by Chiropractors – is experienced by millions of Canadians every year.
Eliminating pain and getting back into your daily routine as quickly as possible is important to say the least, especially with all the responsibilities of life knocking on the door.

Episode #6 – Causes of Pain and Remedies
“Pain is a response from injury to the tissues of our joints. So its important to identify the tissue that’s causing the pain, whether it be from having unstable ligaments that creates clicking or popping in your joints, or if its from the muscle tendons that get over contracted because the ligaments have gone weak.
The instability created by loose ligaments and or soft cartilage, which is called arthritis, puts more strain on the tendon insertions of the muscles to hold the joint together.
Furthermore, misalignments in the body frequently occur because of daily forces experienced by the human body living under gravity and if a person does not restore proper alignment, this is also a reason why they may develop pain. This is easily treated by taking an overall approach to moving people away from pain and symptoms and towards health, so that the pain and symptoms do not come back.
Pain can also be increased in the body if there is a biochemistry that has become pro-inflammatory. So it is important to realize that people need to have a balanced biochemistry that is anti-inflammatory and that is supported by several nutrients and changing ones diet, including food allergy testing to find out which foods are causing inflammation.
Foods are not always involved, but they can be in 70 percent of cases where people have pain. We offer food testing through Rocky Mountain Analytical. If you would like to know more about moving away from pain and into health, give us a call and we will be happy to answer any questions you have!”
