Chiropractic for Pain Management
Aches and pains plague nearly all of us at one time or another. When these pains happen only once in a while, many people reach for some sort of over-the-counter medication to get the pain back under control. Often, the pain comes back and it can lead many to look to their primary health care provider to offer something stronger that will ease the pain a bit better. But getting pain relief with a pill, whether it comes from the drug store or the pharmacy, isn't the best answer. It doesn't get to the root of the problem. Chiropractic care does, and it does so without pills and helps many feel better than ever. Here are some reasons why you should choose chiropractic for pain management.
Reduces the Risk of Pills
Even if your pain is never bad enough for you to consider prescription pain relievers or opioids, even over-the-counter medications can have negative long-term effects on your liver. If opioids are prescribed, there is a bigger chance of becoming addicted to them.
Makes You an Active Participant in Your Health Care
Whether you are strictly using traditional spinal correction to help manage your pain, or you engage in corrective exercises at home and follow nutritional advice, you are taking more of an active role in your own pain management with chiropractic than you are by simply taking a pill.
Chiropractic Offers Excellent Diagnostic Benefits
In order to ensure that your chiropractor understands what is happening in your body and the best way to work with you to fix it, thorough evaluations are conducted at Dinuba Chiropractic. A chiropractic diagnosis can frequently connect the dots between an event and the injury that is causing discomfort, which comes in handy if you've been in an accident and need evidence for insurance purposes.
Many Types of Therapies are Available
If for some reason traditional spinal manipulation does not sit right with you right away, you are always free to talk to your chiropractor about other types of therapy that seem less invasive to you, and we are happy to discuss all of these options with you.
