Why Chiropractic Care Beats Medication for Ongoing Back Pain

Back pain is extremely common among adults. Chances are, if you aren’t already plagued by back pain, you will experience it at some point. For most people, a little back pain means popping a pill and going about your day. While this can be beneficial in some cases, and you should always follow the advice of your doctor, is this really the best way to treat the pain? Check out these reasons why it might be better to get to the chiropractor’s office instead to beat back pain for good.

What Can Medication Do?

Whether the medication is over the counter or prescription, it probably works similarly. Medication generally reduces inflammation and pain. That is the basics of taking a pain pill. For minor pains or pains that are temporary, this can certainly be helpful. Can medication cure back pain for good? Probably not. For the specifics, read on.

What Can Chiropractic Care Do?

Chiropractic care can also lead to a reduction in both inflammation and pain. It can also release built up tension, increase flexibility, and promote general well-being. A lot of back pain happens because vertebrae of the spine become misaligned. To treat and prevent this, chiropractors may be able to put those vertebrae back in alignment, and this is what leads to less pain. Can chiropractic care cure back pain for good? Possibly! Read on for specifics.

What is the Big Difference?

The biggest difference is this: medication treats the symptom and chiropractic care treats the cause. The symptom is pain, but pain doesn’t generally happen for no reason. Medication doesn’t go after the cause, which could be a number of things, but very often revolves around misalignments of the spine. Chiropractic care goes after both the symptom and the cause. So, by seeing a chiropractor regularly, you may see a decrease in pain, a properly aligned spine, and therefore a prevention of similar pain in the future. More and more doctors are coming to the conclusion that for long term back pain, chiropractic care may be the best option out there.
