The good news is that our bodies have an amazing, innate ability to heal and adapt. But what if you have pain that keeps coming back or just doesn’t get better? Maybe you’ve seen your doctor, you’ve rested, or tried some home remedies, but it still bothers you.
Pain is a strong signal from your body that something is wrong. This is like having the check engine light come on. We don’t ignore these warning lights on our cars, so why do so many people ignore these signs in their bodies? We often decide to live with pain thinking that being in pain is normal or we use treatments that simply cover up the pain, but don’t treat the cause.
