This week, I really wanted to focus on pain. While this may seem like a rather obvious thing to focus on for a chiropractic office, sometimes I find that we can overlook it. We know that most people who walk through our doors are in pain and so it becomes almost like an unspoken symptom. The truth is, however, pain should never be silent. If you are living with pain, you should be able to talk to someone about it and try to get it resolved. Whether that is with your family doctor or with a chiropractor, or even both, is up to you.
Living a life in pain is really no way to sustain yourself. Even if you are able to power through the pain, it chips away at you and often leaves you physically and mentally exhausted. I personally am very stubborn and don’t like admitting when I am in pain, and I know many others are the same way. This may be due to how society perceives your gender, family relations, or a natural instinct. Many of us with invisible disorders have adapted this as a sort of defense to being told we are imagining the pain. After all, why say something when no one will believe you anyway?
The truth is we should do our best to get out of this habit. Being dishonest with ourselves is one way that things get overlooked when we see a doctor. It is common for someone to go into a doctor’s appointment, say everything is fine, and then complain about different ailments until the next appointment when they say nothing is wrong once again. Doctors are here to help. That is why they went to school for so many years and why they work in the field they do. Always be truthful with your doctor about what is going on and always be truthful with yourself about how you feel from day to day.
Here at Wirth Chiropractic in Greenville NC, we want people to experience life without pain. While we know that this is an extremely unlikely wish, we also know just how much pain affects those around us each and every day whether we know it or not. Come in today and see how much pain we can help you cope with.
