Chiropractic is hands on healthcare that does not involve drugs or surgery. Your Doctor of Chiropractic has years of experience in discovering the root cause of your pain and how to heal it naturally. Patients who suffer with debilitating pain for years often find themselves searching for healthcare options that don’t involve daily medications or potentially risky operations. Chiropractic may help and you don’t need to wait for a referral. Many of these patients recover without the drugs or surgery.
Drugs can often mask pain or make symptoms more bearable but do not correct any problems, especially when it comes to spine conditions. For example, a pinched nerve will not be decompressed or “unpinched” with pills. Patients may require more and more medication to live with their discomfort as time goes on. This can lead to drug dependency and abuse.
Surgery can be life saving and return quality of life to many patients, but it is not the solution for everyone. Many people go under the knife these days without seeking out all of their available healthcare options, including the opinion of a chiropractic doctor.
