When you’re in pain, how many times have you had to decipher what the doctor is telling you and still remain confused about your condition?
How many times have you been told there’s nothing you can do about back and neck pain and what about headaches and fatigue? Wouldn’t you want to know for sure where your symptoms originate and understand what your body is telling you?
When we have a ‘temperature’, this is the body killing the infection. If this is the case and the body is trying to correct the problem, is it really a good idea to bring the temperature down?
Likewise, our back or neck pain is just the body trying to help us. It is telling us that something is wrong. And, because our nervous system is protected inside the spine, you can be sure that it is going to tell us when we have a spinal problem. It expresses its urgency with pain.
Pain is one of our basic reflexes that is there to protect us. So if we experience neck or back pain, what should we do?
What’s the Root Cause?
So, what are the most common causes of back pain we see in Singapore? It may be posture, loss of alignment, a repetitive strain type injury or the result of an accident. But, one thing is certain – there is a cause!
An important thing that you will learn is that the body is a self-healing mechanism with multitudes of natural reflexes that continuously bring us back to a healthy equilibrium. When the nervous system, which regulates everything, has some form of interference these mechanisms can be disturbed and we move away from health.
“This is the best part of my job. When we work with the body to improve function, the patient reports a decrease in pain. But what I really love is that there is hardly a week goes by that someone doesn’t tell me that after treatment their headaches have disappeared, or that their bladder function has improved or digestion problems cleared up. When we balance the spine and take pressure off the nerves it is amazing the health improvements we see.”
A visit to one of our clinics can be an extremely enlightening experience. Clear explanations are always given because, after all, how can you look after something if you don’t know how it works.
We are committed to providing our patients with all the necessary information so that they fully understand the cause of any problem and the necessary steps to regain a healthy pain-free life.
