Awareness is essential to the healing process. When you get hurt, it's the role of the nerve system to sense the damage and inform your brain (pain) so the healing can start.  Masking the 'awareness' step creates problems.

Unfortunately, in an effort to create perpetual comfort, drug companies have become very good at desensitizing people to their own physical and emotional pain alarm systems - and apparently those around them as well.  According to a recent study by Ohio State University, when you take something as simple as acetaminophen (Tylenol) to reduce your pain, you may also be decreasing your empathy for both the physical and social suffering of others as well. So much for the old saying “...I feel your pain.”

While the medical profession and its pharmaceutical cousins strive to numb you, Chiropractors remove tension in your nervous system so you can fully experience your environment and respond to whatever life throws at you, both good and bad.  No one likes to feel pain or discomfort, but we need to recognize it as the body's attempt to save itself.  When you stop feeling, you stop healing - not only yourself, but potentially everyone around you.
