Chiropractic Care vs Pain Medication: Which Is Better For You?

Do you suffer from mild to severe pain? If so, do you turn to pain relievers? Did you know that pain medication is not the best choice? It is easy for us to say that chiropractic care is better than pain pills and you may be wondering why. Where is the proof?

First pain medication does not fix a problem. It provides relief, but only short-term relief. Pain medication only masks the problem. As soon as your pain pills wear off, the pain is likely to return.

Chiropractors treat the source of the problem. We don’t want to mask the problem. Instead we treat it by going directly to the source. For many, the source is poor posture and spinal misalignment. By treating the problem at the source, you will get relief and that relief should be long-lasting.

Most pain relievers have side effects. NSAIDs (like tylenol and advil) can result in stomach bleeding and ulcers. Some medications interact with others. Pain relievers are full of side effects. This is particularly true with prescription pain relievers. Patients can experience drowsiness, dizziness, upset stomach, nausea, and more. Pain relief should improve your life, not create a whole new set of problems to deal with.

Chiropractic care is all natural. At Chait Chiropractic Center we use a combination of adjustments, exercise and traction to relieve the pain and correct the problem. Because there is no pain medication it is safe. In fact, chiropractic care is safe for individuals of all ages. The young, old, and even pregnant and nursing women can seek relief through this natural form of healthcare.

In short, chiropractic care is not only safer but long-lasting. So the next time you find yourself reaching for pain relievers to treat you pain and discomfort, please stop. Call Chait Chiropractic Center at 941-371-1070 to schedule a consultation. You may be surprised how easy it is to relieve your pain naturally.
