Chiropractic Care is a Natural Alternative to Painkillers

Posted By Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain || 24-Mar-2017

Many people who deal with chronic pain assume that they will only ever be able to find relief by taking pain medicines. And all too often, doctors are willing to oblige. Unfortunately, opioid abuse has become a distressing epidemic in the United States due to the highly addictive nature of these drugs. In fact, in 2014 alone, nearly 19,000 people died from accidental overdoses – a 16% increase over the previous year.

According to an article by Forbes, part of the problem is that patients are unaware that they have other options. For example, patients suffering from chronic neck or back pain, such as from a health condition or from an injury, can benefit greatly from holistic, drug-free chiropractic care. Used for more than 2,000 years, chiropractic is a proven and trusted area of natural medicine that does not carry the many risks that pharmaceutical pain relief methods do. Acupuncture and physical therapy are two other widely used natural pain relief methods that produce excellent results for patients.

But if chiropractic care is so widely accepted as an effective method of pain management, why aren’t more people seeing chiropractors? The answer is that many people believe that healthcare companies don’t cover these services – but this isn’t true! The non-profit organization The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress found that up to 87% of all insured American employees are covered for chiropractic care.
