Where is the Pain Coming From?

If there is warning pain (tissue damage) it is important to find out what tissue is damaged. Examples: pulled muscle, broken bone, heart attack, kidney stone, aneurism, vascular pathology, burn, infection, disc herniation, nerve entrapment, and many, many other conditions. ** Some of these conditions can be life threatening.***

Common Pain Generators for Warning Pain

·         Muscle
·         Ligament
·         Nerve
·         Joint
·         Disc
·         Blood Vessels
·         Organs
·         Skin

Finding the paingenerator or source of the pain is very important. Each pain generator will have a different clinical presentation of pain. Depending on the pain generator the treatment will be different. Please talk with a doctor to determine your pain generator.
