Let’s talk about chronic pain, cracking your knuckles, avoiding opioid addiction, how social media can make us sick, and the healthiest fruits
A DIFFERENT TYPE OF CYCLING – THAT OF PAIN AND DYSFUNCTION
When there is an emotional disturbance and/or trauma to anyone, there is first the stress of the impact and the resultant injury to one or more body parts. The consequence of the trauma leads to vasoconstriction of blood vessels and muscle spasms, causing a change in the muscles. These changes can include: a change in biomechanics, shortened muscles, myofascial syndromes and trigger points. In the spine this can lead to a facet strain, causing pain and more spasms, ultimately creating muscle pathology and a shortening or fibrosis of the connective tissue. If not resolved, this whole cycle will repeat itself.
Receiving deep-tissue bodywork/myofascial releasing helps reverse this “cycle” and restore you to the normal function you had prior to the trauma. When you create the right environment for healing, your body naturally wants to return to equilibrium or homeostasis, which is where you usually are when not thinking about your health. Only when you incur a trauma or break the laws of biomechanics will you start noticing that you hurt and it’s not going away; this is when you start to do something to get rid of the pain. However, often the pain is the last to appear and the first to go, but the real cause of the problem has been building up for some time. Reversing the “cycle of dysfunction” is usually the most effective way of feeling better, naturally, with bodywork and chiropractic adjusting.
