The body remembers. Every trauma, every injury, every illness has a lasting effect on the body. Especially the big ones.
A neck subluxation received on the soccer field as a child could create a cascade of compensation that affects your entire life causing seemingly unrelated problems such as hip pain or weak digestion. While the acute problem has passed the imbalance caused may create a whole new set of issues.
Past injury may have a very mild effect or it could be incredibly significant. How significant is usually directly related to how extreme the injury or trauma was. Perhaps you had an illness or digestive upset and feel your body never fully recovered. Maybe ever since that time you have felt different, your immune system has been weaker or your digestion has been “off.” If you sustained an injury at a young age and now you have unexplained health or emotional issues the injury from years ago may be the cause.
In Chinese medicine, your body’s history tells a lot about your body’s current status. The mystery of why your system acts the way it does may be revealed via a thorough evaluation from an Eastern Medicine point of view. Acupuncture can oftentimes unravel these long-term injuries and help restore balance and health.
