Chiropractic is centered on the philosophy of helping your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate wellness. For ChiroWerx, this involves working hard to restore your body's healthy performance to prevent the need for drugs or surgical treatments. We see that most of our Charlotte, NC patients are relieved to find a natural solution for their health problems.
One advantage of chiropractic treatment is that it helps people reduce or eliminate the use of drugs. Prescriptions are frequently issued to people who have back soreness. This is such a serious crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.
Some of the most common narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Numbers provided by the AAN mention the fact that roughly 50% of the people taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still taking them five years down the road. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and recovery, particularly if an opiate addiction arises.
Contrast that to chiropractic care which engages natural healing and the advantages are obvious. While a medication might be useful at briefly suppressing the symptoms of a health problem, it's not a long-term solution to the problem. Drugs don't fix your damaged back; it will only conceal the pain.
ChiroWerx will first examine you to get to the source of your back problems and then work with you to solve the problem -- without the need for risky medications.
