Pain: Part II

We often attribute pain as always, only, ever - being “bad”.

I think this is a mistake.
We need to expand how we view, understand and interpret pain.

Pain is an indicator.
It is a built in voice for our body.

Pain is what alerted my brother-in-law to the cancer that was growing.
Knee pain is what hinted at underlying neural-induced fascial tension in a patient of mine.
Pain is what prompted me a long time ago to change my posture so that I would no longer suffer from severe headaches.

It can be a process to diagnose and unpack these things, but pain was the initial indicator. Our body saying “something needs to change”.

What an amazing thing! If we listen to it, pain can tell us a lot!
