Today in health care, prices are soaring, opioids have become a deadly epidemic, and wait times are becoming longer, all the while, patient needs for care and pain relief persist. Chiropractic care for pain is becoming more important now than ever. Chiropractors are capable of handling many of the same issues and concerns that individuals go to their family doctor for. Chiropractors are typically able to get you in for an appointment faster which will get you on the road to recovery sooner. They use a more natural approach to pain relief, without the use of strong prescription drugs that have risky side-effects and the potential for addiction. Chiropractic adjustments can also help the body relax, which is important with many patients who suffer from stress and anxiety. If you have an appointment with your family doctor for any issue involving muscle or joint pain, ask them about seeing a chiropractor for care.
Chiropractic care is considered “conservative alternative medicine” by the health care system. Most individuals with neck pain, headaches, and back pain will visit their family doctor and be prescribed strong medicine for a condition that could instead be treated naturally. Most patients don’t question their family doctor (rightfully so). Because of this, they never have the chance to experience chiropractic care. Conservative treatment means that chiropractors use gentle, natural methods that allow the body to heal itself. We do not introduce medications, injections, or surgical hardware, that are all more invasive methods on the body. In some instances these more invasive treatments are necessary, but more often than not, they can be avoided, especially if symptoms are treated by a chiropractor early on.
The idea of natural relief is what makes chiropractors an alternative to the medical field. We believe that when you use both treatment methods (medical care and chiropractic care) together, patients receive improved results. That is why I urge you to ask your doctor how chiropractic care may be appropriate for your condition. Our goal as doctors is to get our patients out of pain and back to doing what they love as quickly as possible.
