Achieve Pain Management Though Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care

There are better ways to manage your pain than with painkillers. Pain medications have many side effects, including stomach bleeding, kidney and/or liver damage, nausea, confusion, lethargy and dizziness, which is why most painkillers include a warning to not drive or operate heavy machinery while using.

Pain Killers as Pain Management

If you are in pain, it is likely that you take prescription or over-the-counter pain medications. The pain pills that you take do nothing to heal your injury. They, instead, provide pain management by masking the pain so that you no longer feel it. This could lead to further injuring or aggravating the injury and pain pill addiction. In fact, prescription pain pill overdoses account for more than 120,000 emergency room visits each year.

To avoid the potential for an overdose or becoming and addict, try our medication-free and surgery free alternatives to managing your pain.

Chiropractic Care and Physical Therapy Benefits

Chiropractic care and physical therapy, also known as physiotherapy, can help you manage your pain and heal your injuries and ailments so that you can live a pain-free, active lifestyle. Chiropractic adjustments can treat sports, work related and car accident injuries. It can heal bulging and herniated discs. It can treat Sciatica and Scoliosis, and it can relieve the symptoms of tennis elbow, runner’s knee and carpel tunnel syndrome.

Physiotherapy is the perfect complement to chiropractic adjustments. The adjustments realign the vertebrae in the back and neck and treat misalignments of the joints to reduce pain and increase range of motion.

Physiotherapy strengthens the muscles so that the spine and skeletal system are better supported, and it starts with a thorough evaluation from our chiropractor and then a visit with our physical therapist. From there, a comprehensive therapeutic exercise program will be developed for your specific pain and injuries. With continued treatment, your pain will slowly dissipate, and your reliance on pain killers will lessen.

Are you ready to ditch your pain killers and try a holistic approach to managing your pain?
