WHY CHOOSE CHIROPRACTIC?

Doctors of Chiropractic are highly skilled in patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment. They are also able to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as provide nutritional lifestyle and dietary counseling. It is estimated that chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children) annually. Read more here…  

Chiropractors are licensed to practice in all 50 states and the District of Columbia – and in many nations around the world – and undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences at institutions accredited by the U.S. Department of Education.

Chiropractic is used extensively by amateur and professional athletes to prevent and treat injuries as well as achieve optimal health and functioning.

– Let’s re-think our approach to pain –

“Inadequate pain management coupled with the epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse has taken a severe toll on the lives of tens of thousands of people in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as one in four patients who receive prescription opioids long term for non-cancer pain in primary care settings struggles with addiction. Every day, more than 1,000 people are treated in the ER for misusing prescription opioids.

Deaths involving opioids have quadrupled since 1999; in 2014 alone, more than 14,000 people died from overdoses involving the drugs. That same year, another 2 million people abused or were dependent on opioids.

Beyond the risks of addiction and overdose, prescription drugs that numb pain may convince a patient that a musculoskeletal condition is less severe than it is or that it has healed. This misunderstanding can lead to overexertion and a delay in the healing process…or even permanent injury. Chiropractic and other conservative (non-drug) approaches to pain management can be an important first line of defense against pain and addiction caused by the overuse of prescription opioid pain medications.”
