Traditional Treatment Dilemma
For musculoskeletal problems, traditional treatment of drugs and surgery can be expensive, ineffective and even dangerous. People in severe pain certainly welcome the fast relief of medication, even though the results are temporary. While medication rarely addresses the cause of the problem, patients must keep going back to their bottle of pills when the pain comes back.
This behavior encourages drug addiction; there are many back pain sufferers who became addicts because of the prescription pain medicine they were given by their doctor. When taken too much or for too long, most medications cause side effects and eventually causes damage and harms the body.
While most people would prefer to avoid invasive procedures like surgery, sometimes it’s necessary or unavoidable; so fortunately there are many skilled surgeons to choose from. However even the best surgeons barely reduce the high risks of anesthesia or complications. Even successful surgeries leave behind scar tissue that is often a problem with the musculoskeletal system. When performed on joints or the spine, scar tissue often becomes the seed for degeneration and in many cases the future site of arthritis.
Try The Natural Approach
Chiropractic care is a method of healthcare that corrects misalignments and reduces spinal nerve stress through the use of gentle and precise spinal adjustments. The primary goal of this safe and beneficial type of manual therapy is to diagnose and treat spinal and musculoskeletal conditions including bulged and herniated discs and pinched nerves.
Because your nervous system is rooted within your spine, misalignments of your vertebrae cause pain and/or impaired function – either in your back or anywhere along the affected nerve path. A pinched nerve in your lower back may cause lower back pain or sciatica pain that radiates into your leg, making it hard to walk, for example. A misalignment in your upper back or neck can cause radiating arm pain or chronic migraines. A chiropractic adjustment is the only treatment that corrects this problem.
More Than Just Effective Pain Relief
Chiropractic is the best way to get out of acute pain from severely herniated discs. It’s also the smartest option for managing many different chronic musculoskeletal conditions including degenerative discs, osteoarthritis and chronic joint pain. While most chiropractic treatments focus on the spine, the best rated chiropractors are also adept at keeping extremities in proper alignment. This helps many patients so they can continue to walk and move without pain in their knees, shoulders, elbows, wrists and feet.
Many people also use chiropractic as part of a healthy lifestyle. By betting regular chiropractic alignments, you can greatly reduce (and even prevent) any ill health that’s the result of pinched nerves. Ongoing chiropractic care is excellent for reducing stress and long term wear/tear on the structure of the body. It also combats postural problems and helps you maintain optimum function so your body has 100% nerve supply at all times. This is very important in having a healthy immune system as well.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care can help a wide range of problems, including:
- Postural problems
- Chronic back, neck, or headache pain
- Sciatica pain
- Bulging or herniated spinal discs
- Degenerative arthritis
- Sprains and strains; overuse injuries
- Sports or accident injuries
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)
Regarding most back and neck pain conditions, chiropractic is often the best place to start. Besides being natural, it’s also one of the fastest ways to get relief. The type of method used for chiropractic treatment makes a big difference but unfortunately much of the public is unaware of this. While all chiropractic care is safe, some methods are more effective than others.
Extremely Safe Healthcare
Many first-time patients express some amount of hesitation at their initial chiropractic appointment, and it’s only natural to be slightly skeptical of treatment methods that are commonly labeled as “alternative.” But in reality, chiropractic care combines the best of both worlds: A physician’s in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and function with the intuitive approach of a hands-on healer.
As a patient, you can rest assured knowing that your doctor of chiropractic completed a doctorate program equal to your medical doctors. Unlike drug therapy, which often comes with unwanted side effects, chiropractic treatments address the underlying cause of pain or injury to promote recovery and healing, naturally. There are no adverse reactions or side effects.
Chiropractic care is safe for all ages, from newborn infants to seniors. It is also safe for pregnant women (however without x-rays) and been shown to reduce pain and duration during labor. It’s also safe for osteoporotic patients, patients with spinal fractures and even many post-surgical cases. Your doctor of chiropractic is also well trained to determine if your condition is not a chiropractic case and warrants referral.
