Would you be surprised to learn that the pain you experienced in one part of your body is being caused by a problem in an entirely different area? For instance, you may experience pain and tenderness in your shoulder ; yet, the source of the pain may be your neck even though there is no neck pain. This pain phenomenon ; know as “referred pain,” owes itself to the fact that the origin of the pain and the body part experiencing the pain share a common nerve pathway. The brain is then unable to differentiate between the pain and its source. Fortunately, chiropractors are very familiar with referred pain and can trace its source and thereby formulate an effective treatment plan.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
