Alleviate Back Pain without Pain Killers

Blog.fixbackpainThe holiday season is upon us, and that means no one has time to be slowed down by a sore back! While over-the-counter and prescribed pain killers can give you temporary relief from the pain, they don’t treat the cause, and they can be harmful if taken too frequently.

Long-term use of over-the-counter pain killers like aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen can have dangerous side effects to the body, including indigestion, stomach ulcers, and liver and kidney damage. The most powerful prescription pain killers—opioids – block the nerve signals that transmit feelings of pain to your brain. These powerful drugs, like codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone and morphine can have equally powerful side effects such as nausea, drowsiness, dizziness depression. But probably the most dangerous side effect is they are highly addictive. In recent years, opioid abuse and death due to overdose have increased at an alarming rate.

Chiropractic Care is a safe and reliable solution to long-term back pain relief!

A gentle, non-invasive alternative to pain killers is using chiropractic care to gently manipulate the spine to relieve back pain. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignment in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. Treatment can help decrease inflammation and improve your range of motion and flexibility.
