With opioid use and abuse at an all time high in the United States, people now more than ever are turning their backs on pill bottles, and other conventional treatment methods, in favor of holistic treatments and nature-based medicinal practices to overcome their pain and illnesses. It is true that dietary changes, exercise, and supplements can go a long way in helping your body gradually recover from years of poor health choices; however, when it comes to managing chronic pain and other symptoms of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, your best defense is always a qualified chiropractor. Chiropractic is a safe treatment option that is recognized by countless cultures around the world for its effectiveness, and it can be an effective treatment for you as well.
Numerous official studies have been conducted throughout the years to validate the many miraculous claims related to the success of chiropractic therapies. In the Journal of Manipulative Medicine and Physiological Therapeutics, a 2004 study confirmed that cases of chronic low-back pain lasting one year or less were treated more effectively with chiropractic care than with traditional medical care. More recently in 2015, Spine released a study that proved that “Manual-thrust manipulation provides greater short-term reductions in self-reported disability and pain compared with usual medical care.” The official findings were that 94% of the group exposed to manual-thrust manipulation achieved a more than 30% decline in pain compared to the 69% who were treated with traditional medical care.
Though there is always ongoing research into both the risks and benefits of chiropractic therapies, it to this day remains statistically one of the safest courses of treatment in healthcare for musculoskeletal conditions, due to its non-invasive and drug-free approach to patient health. Despite many efforts to prove otherwise, chiropractic therapies have very few associated risks and side effects, the worst of which being temporary mild soreness. If you are suffering from persistent headaches, back/neck pain, joint pain, pain in your limbs, or any other neuromusculoskeletal grievances, you should schedule an appointment with a chiropractor right away.
