What is pain?

  • What is Pain - Frameworks Clinic Verwood

In the ideal world, the skeleton is balanced: the pelvis is level, the spine is perpendicular.

Small changes to the joints or their position causes the body to make small but crucial adjustments. This leads to extra stresses on ligaments, and in turn muscles and ultimately results in a change in space around nerves.

These changes lead to a restriction in flexibility, discomfort and pain. It may manifest in feelings of stiffness, a change in how you move or affect your performance in a sport or other activity.

A pain you experience in one place may actually be triggered by an issue elsewhere in the body. For example, the pain felt from sciatica could actually be an indication of a positional change of a joint in the back.

Another example of pain experienced elsewhere is, if you have a knee pain and treat the knee in isolation, there is a possibility that the underlying reason for the knee pain has not actually been addressed. The body continues to compensate for the underlying reason, and a problem manifests elsewhere in the body.

Pain: Your body's warning light

If you see a warning light on the dashboard of your car, you know that something needs to be addressed before damage is done. If you ignore the light by taking out the bulb, the problem is still there, but you are no longer aware of it. Eventually, a serious problem will arise.

Think of pain as your body’s warning light. If you take painkillers to mask the pain, it is like removing the bulb. The underlying problem still exists, but you are not aware of it. This will cause further damage.

Imbalance, as described above, may manifest in symptoms such as:
  • Arthritis (Wear & Tear)
  • Sports Injuries
  • Cramp
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Neuralgia
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylitis
  • Degenerative Disease
  • Stenosis
  • Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
  • Lordosis
  • Lumbago
In the event of trauma, which could also result in imbalance, this could also manifest in the following ways:
    • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
    • Sprains
    • Strains
    • Tendonitis
    • RSI (repetitive strain injury)
    • Discogenic Back Pain
