Principle Number Six and Painkillers

From Yahoo and FOX news comes an article titled, “Painkillers Do Not Relieve Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness”

The article opens with the statement that “in a world filled with pain-killing drugs, it may be that only time heals a sore muscle.”

According to a study published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, “Drugs from aspirin to codeine seem to do little to relieve the common muscle aches that come with exercise and overexertion.”

According to the article, the study found that neither codeine or acetaminophen (including Tylenol) “has been shown in studies to relieve common muscle soreness.”

Researchers in the study also concluded that “these drugs, as well as aspirin, offer no real relief for the morning-after pain many people suffer when they push their bodies too hard.”

So after all this research, what did they find?
“Only time takes away the pain” say the experts. Reading Stephenson’s Chiropractic Textbook (which was published in the 1920’s) one would be aware of principle #6 which states that “there is no process that does not require time.”

But what about acupuncture, massage, ultrasound, tens, electro-stim, or dancing on the spine from a chandelier? Does that work? Read the principle.

What about a specific spinal adjustment given at the right time in the right place and the right direction? May I emphasize, “there is NO process that does not require time” and to add another chiropractic statement worth putting on the wall, “the process of healing is not necessarily pain-free.”
