#47 Is Pain Good?


Chiropractic West Bend WI Is Pain Good

This weekend, I borrowed my father-in-law’s power washer to try and clean some awnings. After using it on the awnings for a few seconds, my wife and I realized that the washer was too strong, and the awnings would tear apart. I went to move the washer and touched the metal part of the engine. Yes, this part had a huge picture of a hand crossed out with an X, an obvious sign not to touch. Somehow, I touched it. Another reminder that I should stick to adjusting because I don’t know how to do much else, ha-ha. Shortly after touching the engine, I had severe pain in my finger, letting me know the skin was burning. I started jumping up and down like the very tough guy that I am and was angry about the pain at first. Then, as I stopped to think about it, I realized the pain let me know after only a second to remove my finger. If there had been no pain, I would have received a much more severe burn.

The pain was simply telling me that my skin was being damaged, and that I needed to remove my finger. I was lucky that I felt the pain so quickly and was able to remove the cause of the problem by pulling my finger off the engine. If I had ignored the pain, then the skin damage would have been much worse. By removing my finger and keeping it off the engine, the damaged tissue was able to heal.

If you or a loved one are experiencing pain, look to see if the pain could be a sign that something needs to be changed. If you are consistently experiencing pain for no reason, or because of simple and easy tasks like walking, bending or sitting, then your body is most likely out of alignment. Muscles, joints and nerves are being damaged from moving through gravity. If you fix your alignment with NUCCA, and maintain the correction, then, just like my burnt skin, the damaged tissue will heal, and the problem will not come back.

NUCCA is a very different approach than standard chiropractic. I know it sounds too good to be true. It can be very challenging in the beginning to figure out how to correct some people’s alignment, but once you have corrected the misalignment, all you need to do is keep the body in alignment to allow the body to heal.
