Teat Causes, not Symptoms

Treat Causes, Not Symptoms In this culture, we are told that pills are the answer. We pop aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to mask painand get back in action. By
numbing the pain of an injury, we lose touch with the bodys signals. Without a guardian in place to keep us from overstressing a body part, we can easily worsen the original injuryand we wont even feel it until the NSAID wears off. Besides silencing a self-protective dialog with our own bodies, NSAIDs have many documented negative side effectsparticularly in the gastrointestinal tract. Perhaps the most important point to keep in mind is that NSAIDs treat only symptoms. They do not heal an injury. Chiropractic, on the other hand, treats causes. When the cause of a musculoskeletal injury is properly treated, healing can begin.
Soft-Tissue Injuries An increasing number of doctors of chiropractic are getting trained in the specialized techniques of instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization (IASTM) to work with musculoskeletal injuries.
Stephen Perle, DC, MS, professor of clinical sciences at University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, Bridgeport, Connecticut, says the beauty of these instruments is that they allow him to focus the forces of his hands into a smaller area of the patients body, allowing him to bring about pain relief sooner. IASTM is gaining appreciation
and acceptance among athletes and weekend warriors alike as a technique that complements the unique strengths of chiropractic.
