Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief — A Safe Alternative to Opioid Use

Written By SunCoast SpineCare on August 3, 2018

The National Institute on Drug Abuse released statistics that show over 115 people die every in the United States from opioid overdoses.

Many people become addicted to powerful prescription painkillers that they receive from their doctor for acute or chronic pain. In fact, up to 29% of people routinely misuse their prescription pain drugs.

That’s why chiropractic care is preferred for people who are seeking relief from pain.

Chiropractic — the Natural Way to Relieve Pain

Chiropractic care uses safe, effective spinal manipulation to ease bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles into their proper positions to reduce pain and restore function.

Most pain can be managed through a series of manipulations and, if necessary, other therapies that chiropractors use regularly. 

 These include: 

  • Physical therapy
  • Exercise therapy
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Diet/Nutrition
  • Lifestyle assessments
  • Cutting-edge technologies like VAX-D and Cox Distraction

Research shows that chiropractic care can relieve pain effectively and without the negative side-effects of drugs or the risk of addiction. 

It is a natural, holistic way of treating pain that looks at — and treats — the whole patient, not just his or her symptoms.

Your chiropractor will complete a comprehensive neurological and physical exam, along with diagnostic tests as necessary, and then assess your lifestyle, diet, and nutrition. 

He may look at your posture and daily activities to determine if there’s any correlation between that and your pain.

With this information, he can build a focused, individual plan to manage your pain and increase your overall wellness. 

Today’s chiropractors often work together with primary physicians to develop the best possible approach for pain relief and health, so going to a chiropractor doesn’t mean you have to give up your primary care doctor.
