Chiropractic Treatment: The Natural Approach to Back Pain

Estero, Bonita Springs Chiropractic Care Better Than Drugs for Back Pain

Chiropractic is centered on the philosophy of allowing your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage overall health. For Dr. Green, this means working to reestablish your body's natural performance to avoid the need for medications or surgery. We notice that many of our Estero, Bonita Springs patients are pleased to find a natural solution for their health issues.

One benefit of chiropractic care is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of drug treatments. Prescription medications are commonly supplied to people who have back soreness. This is such a serious crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a report stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most well-known narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Statistics provided by the AAN cite the fact that roughly 50% of the patients taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still on them five years later. This can further complicate the issue of back pain and recovery, especially if an narcotic addiction arises.

Compare that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the advantages are crystal clear. While a pill might be helpful at briefly suppressing the discomfort of a health condition, it's not a solution to the problem. Drugs can't fix your injured back; it will only mask the pain.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Dr. Green will first examine you to get to the root of your back problems and then work with you to solve the spinal interference -- without risky medications.

If you're ready for relief, naturally, give our Estero, Bonita Springs office a call at (239) 495-1166 to make an appointment with Dr. Green.
