Chiropractic is centered on the concept of enabling your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate overall health. For Chiropractic Care & Rehab Center, this means working to reestablish your body's normal performance to prevent the need for medications or surgery. We notice that most of our Estero, Bonita Springs patients are relieved to find a natural approach for their health problems.
One benefit of chiropractic care is that it helps people reduce or eliminate the use of narcotics. Medications are commonly supplied to individuals who have back pain. This is such a significant crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a press release stating that opioid (painkiller) risks overshadow the benefits when administered 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. Numbers offered by the AAN mention the fact that approximately 50% of the patients taking these drugs for a period of three months are still taking them five years down the road. This can further complicate the difficulty of back pain and healing, particularly if an narcotic dependency arises.
Compare that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the advantages are crystal clear. While a drug might be helpful at briefly relieving the discomfort of a health issue, it's not a real solution to the problem. Drugs don't fix your damaged spine; it will only conceal the pain.
Chiropractic Care & Rehab Center will first examine you to get to the source of your back pain and then work with you to correct the spinal interference -- without risky drugs.
