Use Chiropractic To Treat Pain Instead of Opioids
Chronic pain will change your life on every level...physically and emotionally.
Can you imagine yourself being in extreme pain, day and night, no matter where you are, no matter what you're doing? Maybe you can...maybe you are one of the millions whose life has been impacted by this type of pain.
There are so many things in today's world that can cause chronic pain, from back injuries to neuropathy to rheumatoid arthritis. It affects your daily routine, your work, your social life and can cause depression. Is it any wonder that people are turning to painkillers - Opioids - to manage their pain and try to live a normal life?
The Problem With Using Opioids...
Let's just start by saying, Opioids don't treat the pain, they just numb it. And while having your pain numbed and having some type of relief for awhile may seem like a good idea, the problem arises, when in just a few short hours as the drug wears off, in order not to be totally immersed in pain again, you need to take another dose...and the cycle, or addiction begins.
According to the CDC, one out of every four people who take an Opioid drug to manage their pain struggle with becoming addicted, and in the time period between 1999 - 2016, they calculated that over 350,000 people have died from an Opioid overdose.
Opioid prescriptions include:
- Percocet or Percodan
Chiropractic...A New Option...A Drug Free Approach to Pain
Wouldn't you rather treat your pain and heal the root cause, instead of temporarily masking it with drugs, and having the risk of addiction?
Many of the conditions, such as neck pain, back pain, or anything that is Musculoskeletal related, can be successfully treated by a Chiropractor instead of drugs. The FDA, in May of this year, has set new guidelines, recommending that medical doctors provide new treatment option information to their patients, specifically about Chiropractic care. In fact, the FDA is recommending that physicians should become knowledgeable about the entire range of therapies that are available.
There is a pain treatment option that doesn't come in a bottle.
