Chiropractors focus on the whole body, the whole person. A chiropractor is educated to realize how the bones, muscles, nerves, spinal cord, senses and the brain all work together. Dr. Butwell works with quite a few whole people in Georgetown to relieve pain when the body is feeling down. Then, Dr. Butwell offers proposals on how to maintain pain relief and control, so the pain doesn’t return. Exercise is one way to prolong pain relief. (1)

First of all, such a whole person focus allows our Georgetown chiropractor to understand your pain right away. We’ll sympathize that your leg feels like it is on fire and that it feels like that because a nerve in your spine may be irritated or pinched. Your brain knows it. Your leg knows it. Your back knows it. Dr. Butwell’s chiropractor knows it. Once our chiropractic treatment plan tones down or gets rid of that irritation, our chiropractic care advocate ways to ward off such irritation in the future. That’s where exercise often comes into play.

The muscles are important to the body’s function and motion as well as to keeping the bones aligned and the spine blissful. Now, it’s even marked that exercise reduces the pain receptors’ production – dopamine and noradrenaline – for up to 90 minutes after you stop exercising. (1) What a boon for your pain relief!

So, exercise a bit when you are in pain. Don’t do anything until we talk about the right exercise for you, of course! But exercise balances out with your Georgetown chiropractic pain relief, in all likelihood giving you the between-visit remedy you want.
