If I were to ask is pain a good thing or a bad thing, most people would probably answer that it is a bad thing.  And while I agree that pain is unpleasant to experience, I would have to argue that that does not necessarily make it a bad thing.  Pain is the body's way of telling us that something is wrong, so if we could not feel pain, we would never know when there is a problem.  This is also why just covering up or masking your pain with aspirin, Ibuprofen or other pain killers can lead to more damage in the long run.  This approach is like taking the batteries out of your smoke detector because you don't like the noise it makes, you will get relief from the noise, but your house may burn down.  That is why we look beyond just the symptoms as chiropractors and try to find the CAUSE of the pain so that we can stop it at the source instead of just covering it up.
