The Purpose Of Pain

by Chiropractors Brighton on July 15, 2010

Pain Is A Warning Signal!

Pain brings our attention to something that is not working as it should and is the warning signal that our body uses to tell us it has reached a limit of some kind.  It is the body’s built in alarm system to alert us to the fact that some type of change is required.

Pain is good thing, but try to tell someone that, who is in pain!  Pain brings our attention to our body.  That’s a good thing.  It gives us the opportunity to make changes to our lives that do not work for our “highest good”.  It’s when we misinterpret the pain or take drugs to make it go away that causes long term problems.  By doing this we silence the message, but don’t attend to the problem or it’s underlying cause, in the same way that we would ignore the oil light that comes on, on the dashboard of our car to let us know that the oil levels have dropped too low.  If we silence the oil light by smashing it with a hammer, the problem remains and eventually the car will let us know – usually by refusing to go any further!  This also happens to our body when we continue to take pain killers etc to silence pain by not attending to the cause. Of course it makes sense to use pain killers before we can get help for the cause of the problem, but long term repeated use predisposes us to even greater problems.

Many people begin chiropractic care because of a painful symptom but your  chiropractor’s primary interest is in the underlying cause of the pain, which may or may not be at the point of pain where you are feeling it.   Our Chiropractors are also very interested in the physical, mental/emotional and chemical stresses which may be contributing to your pain.
