Today’s Theme: Pain Management
Read about today’s theme and then answer the question to enter the daily contest.
Pain is a way our body communicates to us to let us know something is wrong. It is important to find and treat the cause of the pain, rather than focusing on a way to relieve the pain, as a way to correct the problem. When we ignore the pain and keep on with our regular activity, we can make the injury, inflammation, or disease process worse. Naturopathic doctors have experience finding and treating the root cause cause of pain.
We treat everything from fibromyalgia, migraines, to injuries physical strains and sprains!
