Being active is the only way to stay in shape, however the repetitive motions can also be a source of a wide variety of injuries. Thankfully the team at Northwood Chiropractic and Wellness has all you need to recover and get pain free fast!
When it comes to pain and injuries from being active, everybody we see wants to know:
"Why is this happening to me?"
"Why am I still suffering during workouts after putting up with it for 6 months - sometimes longer?"
Most people think that when they get injured, the pain is going to go away on its own.
That when they wake up one morning and like 'magic', it'll be as if it never happened. But 6 months later, you're still living with nagging pain and it's worse than where it started.
We see this all the time in our office when people go to urgent care or a family physician, and the doctor tells them to rest and 'try these painkillers' to 'see how it goes' - but weeks later, they end up going back to the same doctor because it hasn't gotten any better, only to be given ANOTHER prescription of even stronger pills.
Maybe you are confused becasue you've been told different things, by different people.
Maybe you think you have a shoulder problem (but it's actually your neck that's the real problem) and nothing is getting better.
Being confused and getting no progress often leads people to proscratinate and put off making a decision about what to do next to help fix their pain. Worse, many people end up just accepting it as 'part of life' - as if it's normal, as if it 'has' to be that way.
Many people (doctors included) make the CRITICAL MISTAKE of only treating the 'symptom' of pain, and not taking the necessary time or energy to understand the true 'root causes' of the problem.
When it comes to something as serious as injuries, choosing the right provicer and getting the absolute best 'non-surgical treatment' could mean the difference between you getting back to your active lifestyle pain free, or living a life on painkillers and needing apotentially life altering surgery.
Our goal at Northwood Chiropractic and Welllness is not only to get rid of your pain, but also heal your body and give you a fix to your problems!
We understand the human body has the AMAZING potential to heal on its own, as long as it's given the proper conditions and environment to heal.
