General pain is like an alarm going off in your body, no different to a fire alarm in your house.
If the siren is loud enough – that is, the pain is severe enough – you’ll become motivated to do something about it.
Sure, you could take medicine or put some ice on it, or even strap it brace it up. All of these options can be great for reducing the pain, but they don’t address the underlying cause of the problem!
You wouldn’t muffle the sound of a fire alarm if it was going off – you would find a way to put out the fire! So why not treat your body the same? When in pain, instead of muffling the noise of the symptoms, here at Strathalbyn Chiropractic, we look for the root cause of the issue.

- Knee or ankle pain
- Pain across the shoulders or between the shoulder blades
