Our Bristol Chiropractic team discusses, What do symptoms really mean?

Spinal & musculoskeletal disorders

Webster’s dictionary defines the word “symptom” as “subjective evidence of disease or physical disturbance” or “something that indicates the existence of something else” However, modern culture has strayed from this definition, instead regarding symptoms as the first stage of illness. Our chiropractor bristol based Dr Mandeep Marway is highly concerned about this common misconception, which results in a “disease-focused” attitude towards healthcare, rather than a “prevention-focused” approach that promotes wellbeing.

A new Outlook

The traditional “disease-focused” western methodology of health care teaches that symptoms are the first sign of illness. our chiropractor, bristol-based Mandeep and other holistically-minded professionals up-hold the opposite point of view: symptoms are often the final mark of infirmity. And a wealth of scientific research supports this revolutionary outlook. Following is a sampling of studies confirming that symptoms are delayed in many diseases — and what our Bristol chiropractic and spinal therapist team is doing to help patients prevent these health complaints before the onset of symptoms.

Spinal Dysfunction

Symptoms associated with dysfunctional areas of the spine where movement is restricted or bones (vertebrae) are slightly misaligned, often occur in the disorder’s latter stages. Lack of joint movement and bad postural biomechanical loading can increase the risk of osteoarthritis, back pain, neck pain, and sciatica, And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Ongoing research suggests Nerves exit the spinal cord between vertebral bones; consequently, researchers theorize that dysfunction in the spine may hinder nerve flow to the musculoskeletal structures throughout the body. Like anything else, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure for vertebral misalignments. That’s why our chiropractor, bristol based and spinal therapy team focuses on preventing spinal disorders before the onset of symptoms. This is accomplished through regular chiropractic checkups involving examinations to detect vertebral misalignments and restrictions in their earliest stages before they wreak havoc on the spine and body. our Bristol chiropractor and spinal therapy team help these dysfunctional areas with safe, gentle manoeuvres called chiropractic adjustments. Scientific research shows that chiropractic adjustments effectively alleviate fixated joints and associated complaints.

Spinal Arthritis and Disc Disease

Research indicates that spinal osteoarthritis is not necessarily associated with symptoms of pain or dysfunction, especially during its early stages. In addition, spinal disc herniation or degeneration is frequently without symptoms (Spine, 2003;28:582-8).chiropractors and allied professionals help clients alleviate the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis and disc degeneration by creating movement in the spinal joints. keeping the spine mobile helps foster healthy joint cartilage. Chiropractors also recommend specific dietary modifications, supplements and exercise all aimed at preventing spinal decay before symptoms begin.

Focus on prevention, not symptoms

From childhood, most individuals are taught that symptoms of pain and illness are the body’s way of telling us it’s time to seek help from a healthcare professional. Actually, symptoms are the body’s last-ditch attempt to get our attention. In our frenzied-pace society, we’ve learned to disconnect from our bodies and ignore the subtle signs they send, indicating the early presence of disease. We are encouraged not only to wait until those symptoms are so severe we can no longer put up with them. our Bristol chiropractic and spinal therapy centre challenge patients to shift their way of thinking about symptoms. Focus on prevention by keeping regular chiropractor, and spinal wellness checkups.
