The Symptom Cycle
What is the symptom cycle? This is a cycle that consists of some sort of pain, dysfunction, or bodily discomfort that pops up, you remedy until it goes away, then you stop whatever remedy or treatment you were doing, and then a while later, the symptom pops up once more.
So, symptom occurs, you treat it, it goes away, you stop treatment, symptom comes back. Rinse and repeat.
How do you stay out of a cycle like this? Its going take a different approach. You know the saying "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results"? That's what keeps the symptom cycle going.
So, you have to take a different approach. Maybe you stick with your remedy, treatment, protocol for a while longer, beyond once the symptoms have resolved, to ensure that whatever is occurring in your body causing the symptoms fully resolves and heals.
Make sense? Or clear as mud? :)
Chiropractors have a reputation for recommending what seems like a high frequency of visits typically when you first start care, but it is for this reason - to be the different approach that gets you out of the symptom cycle.
It can take time and money though, both which are precious resources in our society. But aren't you worth it? Isn't the quality of your life worth it?
