Dr. Brown-Ruegg, a Seattle chiropractor tells his patients all the time that pain is a signal.
It means something has gone wrong long enough to cause a problem. And for many, a vertebra was out of position long enough to cause a misalignment, putting pressure on nerves that eventually causes pain.
When treatment starts, many of his Seattle chiropractic patients get some pain relief fairly quickly. That is good news BUT it does not mean that we have corrected the cause of the problem.
Correcting the cause of the problem takes work. Work consists of spinal correction and strengthening – which takes time, energy and repetition.
