Pain is the cause of so many people’s issues and, of course, is what we see patients for day in and day out. As an expert in caring for spine pain and other conditions through non-invasive means, I know pain is one of the worst ways to determine a person’s health. I can’t tell you how many times a patient walks through our doors and, after a brief history, can pinpoint the exact moment their issue could have started, even decades earlier. Whether it be an old car accident, sports injury, fall, or even just sitting at a computer/desk for years of our life, they all cause significant trauma to the spine and most times don’t get taken care of because the sensation of pain is not bad enough to seek out care. The problem with pain is that it isn’t present 80% of the time there is an issue, and it tends to be the last thing to show up but the first thing to leave when beginning care. Due to this fact, in our office, we focus on how the body is functioning instead of how it is feeling. When the body is functioning properly, pain and other symptoms diminish significantly
When a patient has been dealing with their issues for years or decades, the smallest change can make the biggest impact on their health, and something we hear almost every time is, “I wish I would have found y’all years ago.” Not only could they have avoided unnecessary pain and suffering, but if they had seen us earlier, we may have been able to help them a lot more. Pain or not, most patients don’t truly know how bad things have gotten until they are finally functioning properly again. This happens because once our spine has endured some sort of trauma, our body changes, and several things can begin to occur. If we can care for someone’s spine immediately following an accident or injury, we can limit the spinal distortions from setting in and improve their outcome. The longer we wait to seek care, the more those changes become permanent. Scar tissue begins to build around injured muscles and joints, our movement changes and isn’t as smooth, and nerves and other tissues become damaged or irritated. These patients can still be cared for and can experience significant relief, but there is always a certain amount of function that will not return depending on the time since their particular injury. When we cannot achieve 100% function, we are susceptible to reoccurring injury or other injuries moving forward.
Your body is intelligent and does not want you to be in pain forever, so it begins to self-heal and self-regulate to adapt to untreated injuries. For example, if you have hip pain in your right hip, your body may start to favor the other side to avoid putting as much weight on the right side when you walk or stand. That changes how you walk or stand, which causes stress to the lower back and left hip from supporting uneven weight distribution. If left untreated, what started as a minor right hip issue could quickly become bilateral hip pain and lower back pain. Our body is excellent at adapting to stress and can help us feel better, but it does so at the cost of functionality. Adaptations are meant to be short-term, and pain will eventually return if allowed to set in permanently.
When patients wish they’d seen us sooner, it’s because they realize how much time, energy, and money they wasted trying to resolve the problem on their own all these years. Whether it’s us or someone else, I urge you not to wait to get your spine checked because waiting rarely helps. Time tends only to hide the underlying problem, contributing to compensatory issues and allowing an easily fixable injury to become a much more painful and stubborn chronic issue down the road. The last thing we want is for our patients to feel regret that they could have handled their issue sooner instead of having to limit themselves from doing the things they love and enjoy for so many years. The answer to our health challenges is not found at the bottom of a pill bottle. We can live our lives running from pain and sickness. We must address it head-on, getting to the root cause of the issue, so we can prevent future problems and enjoy the most of what life has to offer. Don’t delay any longer, contact our office now to schedule an appointment with one of our amazing doctors for a specific hands-on approach to regaining control of your health.
