Why does it appear painkillers are working, and then all of a sudden they don’t?
Painkillers provide temporary relief, giving false hope, and is often why people end up calling my clinic weeks after the pain started.
What most people fail to consider is that when they take painkillers, they are really just putting a “bandaid” on the problem, instead of finding the MAIN CAUSE of the problem.
What might the main cause be? Surprisingly, the main cause may not even be in the part of the body that hurts!
For example, with back pain it is common for a physical therapist to find the gymnast lacking mobility in her shoulders or hips. When one part of the body does not have full range of motion (flexibility) then another part of the body will be forced to compensate. Frequently, the body’s spine takes the extra load, leading to back pain.
