If you treat the underling causes of pain, you’re able to correct the underlying issues and the signal, which is pain will go away.

What structures can cause pain:

  • Muscles
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
  • Nerves
  • Discs
  • Joints

When any soft tissue structure is irritated, such as a nerve, it will signal a pain nerve to activate. This is what causes pain. Most Americans will take a painkiller to mask the pain, this does not make you any healthier or fix the problem. The goal is to go to the underlying root cause.

Underline causes:

  • Fixated joints irritating nerves
  • Muscle spasms
  • Tendon tears
  • Herniated disc‘s
