Why The Pain Doesn't Equal The Problem

Why The Pain Doesn't Equal The Problem

My pain is gone, why should I come back. A recent study on Chiropractic showed that treatment 3 times a week for 4 weeks significantly reduced back pain (we already knew this). Then they divided that group and half of them were released to return in 9 months and the other half received continued care 2 times per month for 9 months. The group with monthly care continued to improve through the 9months. The other group slowly increased in pain levels and were almost as bad as when they started at the 9 month checkup. Remember pain is only a symptom and a lot of the time is the last one to show up and the first one to go away. Correct the problem don't just squash the symptom.
