Pain is like a fire alarm: as a fire alarm only rings when a fire is on, also our brain experiences pain only when there is a cause for it. Taking a pain killer for pain is like removing the batteries from a fire alarm that is ringing: it shuts down the noise, but it doesn’t solve the problem.
In musculoskeletal medicine similar injuries have often been given different names depending on where they are in the body. To use just a few common examples: tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff tendinitis, bursitis, osteoarthritis, sprain, strain, muscle tears, pulled muscles, disc bulge, sciatica…these are all mechanical problems mostly caused by muscles not working well.
At d’Praxis our goal is to restore the function of your muscles and joints. That’s why we take a detailed history of your problem and examine not only the area of your pain, but your body as a whole.
Once your muscle function will be restored, your body will be able to repair the injured tissues, the pain levels will decrease and, with time, your injury will fully heal.
