Conservative Care from Your Local Chiropractor

By Donna Kostiew

If you have ever experienced back, neck, arm or leg pain, you know that it can progress quickly and become quite debilitating. And it is usually when the pain starts screaming that all reason and logic escape your brain. Am I right? When this happens, many people want the misery to stop, and they want it to stop “yesterday.” They cringe when the doctor suggests treating their pain and discomfort conservatively, and they suddenly don’t think that having a major surgery is a big deal. But surgery is a big deal actually, so don’t let the pain do your talking.

Chiropractic Care, the Conservative Approach

Conservative care is an approach that your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic adheres to. It is an approach to pain management and healthcare that is safe, drug-free, and get this … non-invasive. Here are a few of the many benefits to taking this approach.

  • Less risk – To start off, chiropractic care is drug-free. Although painkillers are considered by many as being a conservative treatment, in that they are non-invasive, that doesn’t mean they are free from problems. Also, in addition to simply masking the pain, there are plenty of other side effects that come with taking prescription pain relievers and many are associated with higher risks of addictions and overdoses. Surgical procedures come with their own inherent set of risks as well and should always be the last resort. And although more surgeons are using surgery as a solution for many common problems, it has been shown that patients who see a chiropractor first are less likely to go under the knife and more likely to find relief naturally.
  • More savings – Studies have shown that conservative chiropractic care is ultimately less expensive than going a different route with a medical doctor. Even with maintaining regular visits to your chiropractor, the costs are still significantly lower than surgical procedures and the follow-up physical therapy that is required. Not only that, but when you add in the time lost at work, the expense of travel (if applicable), and the cost of at-home, post-surgery medical equipment, it doesn’t take long to see those dollar bills fly out the window.
  • Maintain control – Conservative care encourages you to maintain control of your own health. In addition to providing targeted adjustments that will help manage your pain and treat your issue, your chiropractor will also give you tips on proper exercises and how to make wise lifestyle changes that will continue their impact on your health as the years pass by. It can be very empowering to be in a position to heal yourself, and with help from your local chiropractor, that can be achieved.

The final point is this … pain is not your friend and obviously, rarely intends to serve you well. So keep it in its place and never allow it to speak on your behalf.
