Why many people originally seek a Chiropractor- Pain Relief!
Many people seek chiropractic care at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic of Bozeman because they are in pain. In this phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your pain and get you symptom free. Sometimes this requires a few visits a week for some time until the pain subsides.
Most people have the idea that if they do not feel any pain, then there is nothing wrong with them, that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a poor yardstick for health, and symptoms including pain often only appear after the disease or other condition becomes more advanded.
For example, lets consider a cavity in your tooth. It doesn't usually hurt right when it develops, and if it does hurt, it usually means that it is already in a quite advanced stage. The same is for cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders, diabetes, cancer, and most other conditions. The same goes for the spine, as often pain only occurs when the stage of spinal degeneration is advanced, and that the reason it is very important to get your spine checked routinely. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is often the first symptom to disappear, although there still might be a underlying problem.
