Chiropractic is based on the philosophy of aiding your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate overall health. For Weary Chiropractic Clinic, this involves working hard to reestablish your body's healthy functioning to avoid the need for drugs or surgery. We notice that most of our Prescott patients are pleased to find a natural solution for their health issues.
One advantage of chiropractic care is that it helps people decrease or eliminate the use of drug treatments. Prescriptions are commonly issued to individuals who have back soreness. This is such a significant concern that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.
Some of the most common opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Statistics supplied by the AAN mention the fact that approximately 50% of the people taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still dependent on them five years down the road. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and recovery, particularly if an opiate dependency arises.
Contrast that to chiropractic care which involves natural healing and the benefits are clear. While a medication might be helpful at temporarily suppressing the symptoms of a health condition, it's not a solution to the problem. Drugs can't mend your injured back; it will only cover up the pain.
Weary Chiropractic Clinic will first examine you to get to the source of your back pain and then work with you to eliminate the spinal interference -- without risky drugs.
