Important Things to Know About Symptoms
Symptoms are the last thing your body tells you in the disease process. In order to have symptoms, you must first be unhealthy. Symptoms may come in many forms — aches, pains, swelling, tingling, burning, allergic reactions, indigestion, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and others too numerous to mention.
Symptoms are only the tip of the iceberg. If the iceberg seems to disappear, there can still be a lot below the surface. The same is true of symptoms.
Aches and pains can often be temporarily relieved by over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers, but the underlying cause is still ever present just waiting to cause the symptoms to reoccur.
Often times the body begins the process of ‘un-wellness’ when the bones of the spine move in such a way that they disturb nerve flow to the body’s organs and tissues. When a nerve is disturbed, it may function at less than half its normal ability. When a nerve decreases in function, the body is under stress. The tissues supplied by the poorly functioning nerve cannot do their job and the entire body suffers.
A Doctor of Chiropractic is a specialist trained to detect and correct these poorly functioning nerves. No other healthcare professional looks for the same things or corrects the same way that a Doctor of Chiropractic does.
Chiropractors spend eight years learning how to detect and correct spinal misalignments (or bones out of place) so they can help your body to improve nerve flow, and ultimately increase your health and vitality. Goodbye, symptoms!
