How many people out there deal with pain? Just about everyone has felt some level of pain at some point in their life. Despite the fact that we all have felt, or will feel pain, very few of us actually know very much about pain. Why do we feel pain? Does it serve any purpose for our survival in the world? Or is it just a nuisance that has the power to stop us in our tracks and prevent us from doing things that we want to do?

There is no easy way to explain the sensation of pain because we all experience pain differently. The simplest explanation is that pain acts as an alarm. It does not matter whether you are talking about an elaborate home security system or a simple smoke detector. In the middle of the night both will tell you that something is wrong and needs your attention, but neither one immediately provides any significant information regarding the cause of the issue. Just like these alarms, pain will only tell you that something is wrong. If you get up from your bed, the security system will often provide you with more detailed information, but without further investigation you would be unaware of where the issue was. Some people are able to turn their extremely sensitive smoke detectors into a sophisticated security system that provides them with the information about the cause of their alarm, AND the ability to TURN THE ALARM OFF (without pulling the alarm off the ceiling and throwing it out the window).

On April 22, 2015 at 5:30 PM, Dr. Chip Bleam from Freedom Chiropractic & Rehab will be hosting an informal discussion regarding pain and how our bodies process and deal with it. Have you ever wondered how pain works? Or why it impacts some people so differently than others? How you can turn the alarm off? To get the answers to these questions, join us on April 22!
