Millions of people suffer from various types of pain. While medications can sometimes help with it, they don’t always fix the problem. Some might even worsen pain because they only temporarily hide it. Chiropractic care can naturally help with pain management by healing the source of pain and preventing it from occurring again.
Below you’ll discover more about chiropractic care and how it can aid with pain management.
What Makes Us Feel Pain?
When we feel pain, it’s because the sensory receptors in the skin are sending messages to surrounding nerves. The nerves submit messages to your spinal cord so they reach your brain. Your brain then registers the pain.
The main nerves that translate pain to the brain are the A-delta fibres and C fibres. A-delta fibres are the larger of the two and transmit stronger pain signals to the brain. On the other hand, C fibres are much smaller and their signals can sometimes be blocked by A-delta fibres.
