We should discuss pain a bit, but only a tiny bit.
Pain is commonly caused by an 'itis'. The itis is commonly caused by poor
behaviour, ie. poor lifestyle, thus, the link to our services.

The Inflammation - itis - Word
Finding an ‘itis’ on the end of a medical word means inflammation of that tissue
which the word points to. Some common ‘itises’ in Musculoskeletal tissues are as follows.
Health care professionals do not cause any of the itises by their treatments or
the examinations. Chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons etc., generally do not
cause any of these itises. People have them before they walk into the office. An examination may temporarily
aggravate an itis, but it does not cause it. People may have the itis in a sub clinical form. That means they have
the itis, but do not know it because the pain is not there yet. The tissues are not stretched enough yet. The
health care professional is trained to find those itises. Sometimes that might hurt a wee bit.
Treating the itises becomes a multi factorial problem because most often the itis
is multi factorial. For instance smokers have more itises and more of most everything bad. People overweight have
more itises because the excessive weight strains tissues. Sedentary people have more itises because of poor blood
flow. People who eat the common poison-foods in Dr. Ouellette’s poison food list have more itises.
The itises can cause pain. That is usually because the itis causes swelling and
that swelling stretches the pain sensors setting off pain. The itis can also cause disability if the part affected
will not work properly while the itis is there.
Getting rid of the itis can be tricky because people may not be willing to change
some of the things adding to the itis. They search for passive care and drugs instead of correcting the things they
can fix themselves for free.
When chiropractors manipulate the spine, that treatment doesn't cause disks to
bulge or rupture. When massage therapists perform deep fiber therapy this treatment doesn't cause muscles to tear.
There are massage techniques to tear scar tissue adhesions, but that is another story.
However, when surgeons perform surgery they do have to cut through tiny nerves,
and sometimes larger ones too, which sometimes leaves long-term numbness. When medical doctors prescribed
multiple medications, these sometimes cause cross-reactions.
We can see that it is usually better to try conservative therapies first before
the more radical therapies of drugs and surgeries which carry higher risks. To be clear, drugs and surgeries are
sometimes necessary. Our position is that people should do all they can themselves, to help themselves before
agreeing to the more radical treatments available. That is the idea behind self-help wellness.
And, if there is hope that people can prevent disease processes, injury
processes, and sickness processes from happening in the first place, then that is by far the smarter way to go.
Understanding these technical considerations with regard to healthcare providers helps de-stress one's life
WellnessRisk.com puts numbers to wellness in order to show a direction that people
can take to help themselves, even with some of the more common itises.
WellnessRisk.com does not treat pain, or any other condition for that matter. See
