3 Reasons You May Not Need Those Pain Pills

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most people are already aware, but it’s worth mentioning again: Prescription pain pills are becoming a serious epidemic in our country. What does this mean? While pain pills certainly have their place in medicine, their use and potential negative side effects are growing faster than we can keep up. More and more people are suffering from long-term use and abuse of this legal pain management option. So what can be done? Take a look at these three reasons why you may not need the pain pills to manage your pain and feel better than ever.

They May Not be Effective Long-Term

Pain pills can be incredibly effective … at first. But over time, the body becomes acclimated to the medication. Suddenly it takes more of the drug to feel the same effect. And since your prescription is unlikely to change to meet your newfound tolerance, this leaves many people in a bit of pain. If you’re feeling discomfort, and you want a treatment that lasts, pain pills may not be the answer you really need.

They Bring Negative Side Effects

The most unfortunate part of taking pain pills is the negative side effects that may come with them. These may be different for everyone, but most people experience at least one. Some of the side effects that may be less than desirable may include headaches, nausea, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, and even addiction. While the pain may be reduced, these side effects may not make the trade worth it.

There May Be a More Effective Option

The best news is that there may be a more effective option out there. For many suffering from chronic pain, chiropractic care is an excellent method for finding relief. Chiropractors attack the pain at the source, removing restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine. This can reduce the general pain felt in the body, and with ongoing care, it may keep the pain away as well. Along with relief, any person receiving regular care may also experience improved mobility, fewer headaches, more energy, a boost in the immune system, and many other highly desirable benefits.
