What is the purpose of pain?

Many of our clients first come to Align 4 Life because they are in pain and they want us to get them out of pain.

Pain causes you to pay attention to something that has ceased working correctly. It’s a warning that a limit of some type has been reached in terms of function and that the body is not equipped to handle the activity and is unable to adapt further. It’s a not-too-subtle way your body alerts you that a change in your action is required.
In many ways, pain is a good thing. It’s only when we misinterpret the pain or make it go away without tending to its underlying cause that we get into trouble. That’s what happens when we rely only on pain medication to “make it go away.”
So, if you’re experiencing pain we promise to help identify the underlying cause of your problem and offer safe and natural solutions to your body’s cry for help.
