Provides Effective Pain Relief

Several studies that have been done have established that chiropractic care can be more effective than medications when it comes to relieving lower or upper back pain or neck pain. It also works to treat the pain of sciatica, bulging disc and slipped disc.

Pain Management without Drugs

As research throws up more and more evidence of the dangers of taking medication and prescription pills, we are becoming more conscientious about reducing our dependence of medication. Chiropractic provides the perfect alternative as it promotes a drug-free approach. Chiropractic focuses on treating the whole system holistically.

Low Risk Treatment

Conventional medicine uses prescription medication for mild back pain and surgery for more severe back pain. Both of these are high risk as medications can cause complicated adverse effects and surgery is invasive. With chiropractic adjustments the only side effect you can expect is a bit of soreness and in some cases fatigues. Very rarely are there any serious side effects.

Treats the Cause of the Pain

Most medications merely help to manage the symptoms of pain but the cause of the pain still remains in the body. Painkillers may mask the pain in your upper or lower back but it does not cure the bulging disc. Chiropractic care on the other hand addresses the cause of the pain, which is more effective for long-term relief.

Treatments Can Be Customized Depending On Your Condition

Dr. Hohn, at Pure Chiropractic, located in Howell, MI makes use of a wide range of tools and techniques to treat pain and other mobility issues. All of these techniques can be customized for your body shape and size and the location of your pain. If you let your chiropractor know the exact spot that is painful and the kind of pain, you will receive customized chiropractic treatment.

Prevents Joint Dysfunction & Several Other Conditions

One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care is that it reduces joint dysfunction, which could otherwise lead to symptoms in other parts of the body. Routine treatment can also prevent and treat several other health conditions, from headaches and migraines to menstrual disorders, fertility issues, gastrointestinal disorders and ear infection. Your chiropractor can help develop a customized treatment plan for you depending on your symptoms.

Back Pain and Neck Pain

Research has revealed that chiropractic care can benefit patients with back pain as much as such treatments as physical therapy and physician care. Chiropractics will help relieve back pain which allows the stimulation of healing. Chiropractors often work with medical professionals to ensure the patient is getting the required care. If you have a serious back injury, consulting with a physician is recommended before undergoing chiropractic care.

Chiropractics can help relieve neck pain from an injury. Chiropractors can perform neck alignments and there have been a very low rate of issues arising from the treatment. However, because there are a number of health risks when engaging in a neck alignment, it is important to consult with a Physician or Specialist before engaging in chiropractic treatment. Some experts say that the neck area should be avoided in chiropractics, especially if the injury is quite serious as after a car accident. There is a risk of a stroke, especially for those on blood thinners.

Like any other therapeutic treatment, when considering taking advantage of chiropractics, consult with your physician, a medical physician specializing in the spine, and even a chiropractic association. Make sure you ask the chiropractor many questions. He or she will explain the treatment process and will explain the benefits, and if there are any risks. When undergoing chiropractic treatment, always report any positive or negative reactions that you have during and after an adjustment. Always listen to a Chiropractor’s recommendations and advice so that your recovery process will be successful.
