26 Oct Back Pain Relief Through Safe, Low-Cost Chiropractic Treatment
Your brain, central nervous system, and the health of your entire body are directly affected by the health of your spine. When a person’s spine isn’t properly aligned, they lose mobility. This can cause a cycle of pain and further loss of mobility, creating a downward spiral leading to dependence on pain medication, as well as high doctor bills.
Chiropractic care, by contrast, allows your body to return to alignment and better health in a non-invasive, natural way. Our care at Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic includes holistic treatments that get at the root causes of your back pain.
Back Pain: The Most Common Source of Disability
It’s no surprise that nowadays the most common cause of disability is back pain, particularly in the lower back. More than 80 percent of people suffer from back pain at certain times in their lives, due to causes such as injuries, poor posture or spinal imbalances. Severe back pain is very debilitating, preventing people from working at their jobs, sleeping well, enjoying simple things in life, or even thinking clearly.
The Cycle of Pain Medication Dependence
Patients who are anxious to relieve their pain will often start by taking over-the-counter drugs. When those treatments prove to be ineffective, back pain sufferers may turn to strong prescription drugs. This desperation to ease the pain leads, in the worst cases, to addiction to dangerous drugs such as opioids. Even without drug addiction, a patient’s symptoms may become worse over time, because medications don’t address the underlying causes of pain.
Chiropractic Care: Safer and More Economical
Unlike medication, chiropractic treatment works on healing the body naturally, without the higher expenses of drugs and doctor visits.
In a recent study, researchers looked at the results of patients treated with chiropractic care compared with those who used other types of treatments. The average cost of treatment with a chiropractor was $712, while the average for other types of care averaged out to $1992. Another cost and health saving factor to consider is that safe, natural chiropractic treatments protect patients from the additional expense of treating side effects that may develop when they use drugs to treat their pain.
When we align your spine with gentle chiropractic adjustments, your nervous system regains the power to heal your body and restore your full potential of mobility. This provides you with a natural remedy for pain, without the expense and side effects of drugs. With this safe, holistic approach you have the best of both worlds: reduced pain and more money left over to spend on enjoying your new life potential.
