A story on www.mailonsunday.co.uk says that dental fillings and metal earrings may be linked to back pain. The report says that even small chunks of metal as in fillings could disturb the alignment of muscles in the body.
Experts feel that the skin around metal is uncomfortable and that it is because of this the nervous system tries to realign muscles as far away from metal as possible giving rise to acute pain.
AdvertisementChiropractor Simon King said that removing metal fillings may ease pain considerably. "I've always been fascinated and confused that some people with massive injuries made a quick recovery while others with minor strains took forever to get better," he said. "Then I made a remarkable discovery. Most patients who struggled to recover from pain or injury had metal touching or piercing their skin."
