Chiropractic is based on the approach of enabling your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate overall health. For Chanatry Chiropractic, this means working to restore your body's normal functioning to prevent the need for drugs or surgical treatments. We see that most of our Jacksonville patients are happy to find a natural answer for their health issues.
One advantage of chiropractic therapy is that it helps people reduce or even eliminate the use of drug treatments. Medications are frequently supplied to people who have back pain. This is such a significant concern that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the benefits when prescribed for back pain.
Some of the most popular narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Data presented by the AAN cite the fact that roughly half of the people taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still taking them five years later. This can further complicate the difficulty of back pain and recovery, particularly if an narcotic addiction arises.
Compare that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the advantages are crystal clear. While a drug might be useful at briefly relieving the symptoms of a health condition, it's not a real solution to the problem. Drugs don't mend your injured spine; it will only cover up the pain.
Chanatry Chiropractic will first examine you to get to the origin of your back pain and then work with you to eliminate the problem -- without any risky drugs.
