What is an all natural way to get rid of back pain without drugs, surgeries, or injections? It's chiropractic care!
The first question is, does it work? There have been hundreds of studies showing that chiropractic works for back pain and specifically ones that show chiropractic works better than medical care as far as over-the-counter medications, injections, and surgeries for lower back pain. The second question is, is it safe? This is where chiropractic really shines and unfortunately does not get a lot of press. The most common side effect that we see from the chiropractic adjustments we do for back pain is just muscle soreness in the area that we do the adjustments. When we compare a little muscle soreness to the potential side effects of ibuprofen, for example, you can clearly see there is no contest for safety. Ibuprofen has a list of side effects that is fairly long, but some of the common side effects would be abdominal pain, diarrhea, rash, bloating, nausea, and even internal bleeding. Those are just some of the side effects that we see from something that we generally think of as safe (ibuprofen). Now when we compare chiropractic safety to the dangers of opioids, including dizziness, nausea, respiratory distress, addiction and ultimately potentially death, there is no question that chiropractic care is your safer bet. The third question is, how much does it cost? A study done just two years ago showed that when they compared people using chiropractic care compared to people using medical care for the same kind of lower back pain, the people using chiropractic care spent 20% less on average. Many health insurance carriers also have chiropractic coverage.
