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 the initial phase of care, our main goal is to reduce pain and get symptoms to a more manageable level. Sometimes this requires repeat visits for a time until the pain subsides.
It is commonly thought that if there isn't any pain, then there is nothing wrong. Unfortunately, pain is a poor measure of health, and symptoms including pain appear only after the dysfunction becomes severe enough to cause damage to tissue.
For example, lets consider a dental cavity. It doesn't usually hurt when it develops, but once it does hurt, it usually means that it is already in a quite advanced stage. The same is true for cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders, diabetes, cancer, and many other conditions. Likewise, spinal pain occurs when the movement dysfunction is advanced enough to cause tissue damage, and for this reason it is recommended that the spine be checked routinely.
Our initial goal with any patient experiencing pain, is pain reduction. After the pain starts to subside, (which frequently happens very quickly!) we work to change the underlying issue that caused the pain in the first place. Sometimes it is residual scar tissue from an old injury, sometimes it is due to improper workplace ergonomics. Whatever the case, the doctors at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic are trained and ready to help you find a solution to your pain long-term!
