The risk of dangerous side effects of prescription drugs has become more a part of society’s conscience. As painkillers decreased pain perception the body becomes vulnerable to further injury or damage. The body depends on pain signals to alert you to injuries. When these pain signals are silenced patients are put in danger of further complications. Not only that, since pain medication is merely a silencer, the root of the problem is never solved. Chronic pain is a result of merely masking the problem as opposed to treating it. Pain medication side effects also include dependency, depression, constipation, hormonal imbalances, and weakened immune systems. Now more than ever, exploring natural options for pain management is a necessary pursuit. Chiropractic care and techniques have been proven to help individuals decrease their pain. In numerous studies, individuals who received chiropractic treatments for 12 weeks or longer experienced greater reductions in pain those who did not. Those who suffer from conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain, back pain, neck pain, headaches, arthritis, and fibromyalgia can benefit from chiropractic care promoting the body’s self-healing process.
