Chiropractic is the largest drugless profession in the United States. One of the most common problems in society is addiction to prescribed pain medication. There is a time and place for pain medication. However in our busy world of today we seem to have less time than ever before. Medication is the “quick and easy” fix to feeling better. Pain has two origins: acute injury or chronic strain. Chronic strain, often from poor posture, is actually the most common cause of pain. Driving to work, sitting at a desk and constantly looking down at your phone all put you in poor posture similar to what you will see in a nursing home.
Very few people understand the connection of their spine to their health. Your nerves make your body work. Your spine protects your nerves. When your spine is in poor posture or is losing mobility this stresses the nerves. Anything connected to a stressed nerve will work less than normal. This is why so many people report many different health problems respond to Chiropractic care.
• When you see a chiropractor…
Many patients feel relief after their first treatment with a chiropractor. Several studies have found patients are more likely to feel more satisfied with the care offered by a chiropractor compared to that offered by a standard medical practitioner. Patients enjoy the reduction in pain, often more long term relief, after seeking care with a chiropractor. The drug free approach has no side effects and no chance of long term addiction.
• Track record of safety… Chiropractic care has a longstanding safety record. Chiropractors pay a fraction of the cost in malpractice insurance compared to medical doctors. According to the survey by Thiel HW, Spine, October 1, 2007, a population of 19,000 patients received more than 50,000 neck adjustments and not one adverse event was reported. Experts concluded from the result of that survey the risk of adverse effect from any chiropractic treatment is quite low.
• Money saving treatment process…
Billions of dollars are spent each year on surgery, therapy and medications every year. According to multiple insurance companies, many people are heavily burdened by their medical expenses making it the most common cause of bankruptcy. In many of these cases, despite spending thousands of dollars, the patient will continue to have ongoing problems. Adding chiropractic care early in treatment versus “a last result” has the potential to reduce the need for expensive and invasive procedures; reducing the associated cost and long term pain.
