The problem with pain management…

The idea of pain management is like giving up and accepting defeat.

As if there’s no way you’re getting past this discomfort.  So, instead of fighting for a better quality of life, you’re going to just palliate the symptoms.

Now, before we go too far, I know there are many out there who aren’t buying into this way of thinking.  They have found themselves in pain, and are not planning on rolling over.  Instead, they use pain management to get them through the tough days, while they’re putting the work in to healing their body.

But there’s more to pain management then just the connotation behind the words…

The problem with pain management is it robs you of your motivation to fix the core problem that created the pain in the first place.

There are no shortage of drugs, medications, and therapies in America for pain.  What they do best is relieve symptoms.

By removing the warning sign, your body no longer can alert you to the fact you have an underlying problem that’s continuing to cause issues.

Pain is an excellent motivator to push you to learn, understand, and improve your body.

Taking it away saps all your drive to fix the problem.

Whether you’re suffering with back pain, sciatica, neck pain, or some other type of pain…

The best thing you can do for yourself is counter-intuitive.

Instead of reaching for something to manage your pain, attempt to swim further up-stream.

Why did this pain occur in the first place?

Pain is almost never the real problem.  It’s typically COLLATERAL DAMAGE.  Meaning, it’s happening as the result of something else.

There may be a few factors contributing to your pain.

So, until those issues are removed, forget trying to fix your pain.

On the other side of the coin, once you’ve removed the real problems, then your pain will resolve on its own…permanently.

No pain management needed.

Dr. Matt Pennetti suffered from excruciating cluster headaches in college that threatened to derail his playing career and school. His life took a turn when he was introduced to a Neuro-Structural Chiropractor who was able to gave him relief from the pain and discomfort. After that life-changing moment, Dr. Matt decided he wanted to to do the same for other people who suffer with health issues. When Dr. Matt is not in the office, he's feverishly completing the "honey-do" list, or trying to keep his son, Braxton from growing up too quick.
