Many of us take our health for granted. We may have no pain, or get a small ache here and there, a headache once in awhile, some tension, low back pain, food sensitivities, allergies, or any other condition that may seem minor but little do we know what is really going on in our bodies that may be causing these. Pain is your body telling you that something is not right and that the body cannot compensate anymore. Just think of a heart attack, the actual attack may be the first sign but the heart has been deteriorating over many years. Many people try to mask pain by taking pain relievers or muscle relaxers but are you questioning what is causing the pain? Temporary relievers may be necessary in some cases until the underlying issue is addressed and the body begins to heal, but continuously taking these will lead to more detrimental effects in the future. The body is amazingly resilient and can compensate for damage we have done to our bodies for many years, whether you had a birth trauma, hit your head or fell off a bike when you were a child, played sports, were in a car accident, had any other injuries, poor posture or even poor diet, but the body has a limit. In many instances our body can heal the damage we have inflicted upon it, but after too many years, some damage may become irreversible and give us problems later in life. The most important way to take care of the body is starting from the inside-out. Start taking care of your body by visiting your chiropractor to have your body structure and nervous system evaluated. Additionally, keep active and pay attention to what your are putting into your body. What we do to and put in our bodies, determines the health of the one body we have been given!
