back pain treatmentDid you know that musculoskeletal disorders are the leading physical disability around the world?

65% of adults in the United States have sought treatment for back or neck pain at some point in their lives while 25% have visited a doctor for pain within the past year.

Sadly, many conventional doctors get it wrong by prescribing dangerous narcotics

Chiropractic offers a safe and completely natural chronic pain alternative to invasive surgeries or dangerous drugs.

Why is Chiropractic the Right Choice for Pain Management?

An epidemic of systemically overprescribing opioids is responsible for the deaths of 130 Americans each day on average. Your chiropractic doctor will never prescribe dangerous drugs or suggest invasive surgeries unless you’ve exhausted every possible option.

Fortunately, the American College of Physicians has recently updated its guidelines suggesting that doctors recommend chiropractic care like spinal manipulation as a first line of defense against pain rather than prescribing opioids.

Plus, research shows that chiropractic care is effective for treating chronic low back and neck pain. 61% of patients in a Gallup poll said their chiropractic care helped relieve pain.

Together, you and your doctor will develop a personalized pain management plan with gentle chiropractic adjustments, posture correction, and possibly massage therapy as well.

Your doctor will also suggest home exercises and stretches to strengthen vital muscles and ligaments and prevent pain from returning.
