Pain is a Symptom, Not a Cause
Non-Traumatic pain can be like chasing after a ghost.
It can be difficult to understand why pain in a specific location seemed to arise from nowhere.
Since it came from nowhere, how does one know how to get it to go away?
The pain you are experiencing, if it is from a musculoskeletal deficit, is a SYMPTOM of an underlying issue that now needs to be addressed.
Your brain eventually passed a threshold where it deemed necessary to identify your musculoskeletal dysfunction by sending an OUTPUT that is interpreted as pain.
That dysfunction had been present previous to the onset of the change in signal from your brain, however wasn’t deemed as severe enough to send that signal in the form of pain.
That explains WHY your pain seemed to arrive out of thin air without any mechanism. Now the question is; What to DO ABOUT IT?!
That is where a physical therapist can help.
It is the job of a physical therapist to test, assess, & identify dysfunction in any part of the musculoskeletal system that can contribute to the pain that is being experienced.
Once that dysfunction has been identified; whether it be a stiff joint, a tight muscle, or even an entrapped nerve, the physical therapist then has the tools to show you how to get that pain to go away.
Many times, your pain can be DECREASED in the first visit.
However, CHRONIC pain that has been going on for LONG TIME, can take LONGER to get to go away.
JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE PAIN TODAY DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO BE TOMORROW.
