Forget the Medicine, Choose Chiropractic Care Instead
By Donna Stark
One of the first things you may do when your back starts to hurt is to run to your medicine cabinet and grab a bottle of pain relievers. You do that because it really does seem to be the quickest path to relief, doesn't it? But pain medications may not always be the best solution. In fact, for some people, painkillers may even make their situation worse! That's why, at The Joint Chiropractic, we believe in a more conservative approach. We know that when you tap into your body's amazing abilities, it can essentially heal itself, and we want you to know it as well.
Getting to the Source of Your Problem
Many people make the mistake of believing that in addition to reducing pain, pain medications will also promote healing, but that isn't always the case. Look at toothaches, for example. You can easily take a painkiller to relieve the pain caused by a sore or damaged tooth, but if you don't fix the actual problem with proper care, that pain will come back, and the same can be said about back pain. Fortunately, all of the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are armed with the expertise needed to find and target the root cause of your pain, and they can help you today! Take a look at how.
- Places your spine in its proper alignment
- Releases muscle tension in your neck and back
- Reduces inflammation and pressure on nerves and discs in the spine
- Removes spinal nerve irritation and interference
- Improves posture which helps to reduce stress and strain
- Improves circulation for quicker healing
Medications Should Be Your Last Choice
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and all-natural approach to the treatment of pain that avoids the use of medications and invasive procedures. And that's good, because there are so many side effects from both prescription and over-the-counter pain medications. Check out some of the most serious ones below.
- Potential addiction issues
- Suppressed immunity
- Gastrointestinal damage
- Depression and anxiety
- Cardiovascular issues
- Joint damage
