Chiropractic Care or Modern Medicine?
I’m not one to medical bash. Even with all of their nasty side-effects, medications do save lives. But there is no doubt that medicines are over-used, over-prescribed and taken by most with far too little caution.
Due to the unwanted and often unpredictable side-effects of medications, it is always best if your body can heal without them. After all, your body is designed to heal itself, and for the most part, it does a bang up job. It’s especially important to be cautious of medications when the medications are only masking symptoms and are in no way helping the body heal. This is a dangerous situation because the underlying problem is most likely going to get worse if ignored and could eventually become chronic.
Take for example neck pain and back pain. The underlying cause of most neck and back pain is Sample structural. Spinal misalignments, muscle imbalances and joint dysfunctions are most likely to blame.
This is why, in the long run, neck and back pain respond so much better to chiropractic care. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find any study comparing chiropractic care to medications for neck or back pain relief that doesn’t have chiropractic care as the clear winner.
The most recent of these studies was published by the Annals of Internal Medicine. The study followed 272 neck pain patients for 12 weeks.
-32% of the ones that received chiropractic care reported becoming pain free.
-Only 13% of the people taking medication made the same claim.
That’s less than half as effective!
Chiropractic 1, Medicine 0. Does that new study change anything? Not really. Chiropractic care worked well before this latest study came out, and it will still work well after it.
In fact, chiropractic care has been helping people for over 100 years. Neck and back pain are just the tip of the iceberg.
If you are a neck pain or back pain sufferer, and you are receiving chiropractic care…hopefully this latest study will help assure you that you have made a good choice.
Chiropractic care is most likely your best option for becoming pain free. For those neck and back pain sufferers who aren’t under chiropractic care…hopefully this latest study will be the push you need to give chiropractic a try. It could absolutely change your life just like it has for so many others.
In Good Health,
