A Big mistake that keeps people in chronic painfrom making a full recovery is the compulsion to treat their symptoms. Western medicine is probably the biggest offender when it comes to this. The entire Western medical system is focused on treatment and elimination of symptoms at all cost. Rarely do doctors take the time to address the underlying causes, instead they just do what they can to make the symptoms go away. Their solution is anti-depressants, anxiety medications, pain medications, cortisone injections and surgery.
As a physical therapist, I evaluate my clients for physical imbalances like: spinal misalignment, poor posture, weak muscles, tight muscles, poor range of motion, poor flexibility, forward head posture, balance…I also specialize in chronic pain and functional wellness. Using the Functional Medicine systematic approach, I seek to discover the systemic imbalances and root causes of inflammation. I ask the question, Why there is pain? Imaging scans do not detect inflammation they show the changes in the spine, vertebrae and bones.
