When describing pain, we are in a world of subjectivity. Pain is only qualified and/or quantified by the perception of the patient. In the past, perception was thought to exist only in the mind and feelings, with no documentable evidence or understanding to measure objectivity. However, we now know that there exists within the brain a very real neurological and chemical mechanism that calculates pain signals and shapes a personal opinion of pain for an individual.
We, as humans, have a unique gift (though to some this may be a curse); the ability to create and form opinions. For instance, if you and a friend had flour, water, eggs, herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables, it would be very easy to agree that you have flour, water, eggs, herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables. What these things specifically mean to you, and your perspective of what to do with them, however, is a very personal thing. You might see them as the ingredients in forming an end product, such as a bread, vegetables, soup and dessert or a salad. You took raw facts and assembled them in yo for instance, a hammer, 20 lbs. of force, and your left thumb. While one person might feel excruciating pain, tears welling in their eyes and an impending trip to the hospital, I may merely say “ouch” and help myself to another slice of my aforementioned pizza.
Everyone understands that pressure on nerves, similar to a pinched nerve can cause pain. This can be treated physically though advanced chiropractic and laser therapies meant to reduce/eliminate pressure off nerves.
Most people are surprised to know that nutrition and a person's dietary habit can play a role in their recovery. By helping a person's body detoxify as well as reduce inflammation, patients can recover 20-80% faster.
At the Center for Advanced Chiropractic, our diagnostic and treatment procedures are meant to turn a new course in resolving or managing pain through nerve pressure reduction and cutting edge nutritional evaluation. In this way, we can label specifically the reasons why you are not feeling better and proceed to treat with better clinic outcome.
