The Pill-Free Way to Go Pain-Free
People who suffer from physical pain commonly address it by taking pain relievers, whether prescription or over-the-counter. Little do they know, this is the worst approach. As a chiropractor, please allow me to tell you my personal viewpoint on this; the best solution is seeking chiropractic care. Read more to find out what makes chiropractic care better than conventional medical approach, the pill-free way to go pain-free.
How to Fix the Problem?
Pain medication offers only a temporary, short-time relief and does not address the root problem of the pain. After the effects of the medication wear off, the pain returns.
Chiropractic care offers a more permanent solution, by going straight to the source of the pain. Usually, it would be spine and joint problems, and by addressing the root of the problem, it provides a long-term and permanent relief.
What are the Side Effects?
Most pain relievers have side effects, ranging from upset stomach to nausea. With even the smallest side effect, it could have negatively affected our day to day activities. Instead of relieving the pain, it creates another set of problems to address.
The natural approach to chiropractic care, which involves manual therapy with the use of the hands, offers a long-term relief from pain. This may include adjustments or realignment to the joints and nerves which is the common root of pain problems.
Is it safe?
Most pain relief medications are composed of synthetic drugs that may not agree with your body, and prolonged use may cause ulcers, bleeding and more. Some medications may interact adversely with other medications and have undesirable side effects. These medications may also be harmful to children, the elderly, pregnant women, and nursing mothers. Though, prescribed by doctors, they may not always be safe.
The natural nature of chiropractic care does not involve medication, the hands provide therapy to address the root of the pain. It is safer since there are no medications or invasive medical procedures. It is safe for everybody from children to elderly people.
How Much Does It Cost?
Drinking pain relievers may require a long-term treatment which offers a short-term relief while the medication is in effect. This causes the pain to return from time to time, which means the cost continues while the pain is being treated. These costs will add up over time and will continue to add up to your expenses.
Contrary to common notion, insurance does cover the cost of treatment, and there are no maintaining costs once the problem has been addressed. Some chiropractors will even teach you how to relieve the pain at your own home. A few appointments with a chiropractor is cheaper than the long-term costs of pain medication.
Chiropractic care is not only safer, but cheaper, less invasive, and offers a more permanent solution to pain. So the next time you reach out for pain relievers, consider going to a chiropractor instead, and you might find a better way to relieve yourself of your pains naturally.
