The natural pain relief advantage
No matter who you are, you can’t afford pain. From a lingering ache to a debilitating disc injury, pain is going to take its toll on your life. That’s why pain relief is such a huge field within modern medicine (and such a major arm of the pharmaceutical industry). And while pain relieving medications are indispensable to some, others become gripped by their addictive properties and find themselves at the mercy of myriad side-effects. What’s more, a painkiller is only a mask- it doesn’t actually resolve anything. It simply treats the symptom (pain) so that you can get on with your life. From a wellbeing perspective, this is very important. But natural pain relief takes a different approach: it seeks to resolve the source of the symptoms, thereby creating more profound, permanent changes that will offer longer-term pain relief.
Where natural pain relief differs
As an office of chiropractic, we can only speak for the discipline of chiropractic, which is a major part of natural pain relief. When someone comes to us with pain, of whatever degree, we start with an examination to determine the cause of the pain. This allows us to create a multi-faceted plan for pain relief moving forward that will (most likely) incorporate a mix of: spinal adjustment, diet and exercise advice, and lifestyle adjustment. This can work in tandem with your primary care to give you an added chance of overcoming your pain. Natural pain relief works because it targets the root of your pain, which often means:
- Longer-term, if not permanent, pain relief
- Overall improvement of function and feeling
- Fewer, or zero, side effects when compared with painkillers
- Resolution of underlying conditions
Chiropractic, as part of a natural approach to pain relief, is quite often cheaper than managing pain with painkillers. And it will always remain natural and non-invasive, meaning that we give your body the best chance of healing itself.
