Chiropractic Care vs. Drugs and Surgery for Back Pain

The inevitable has happened, and you're suffering from back pain.

Don't worry, you're not alone, because 80% of people will develop back pain at some point in their lives.

Back pain accounts for over 264 million sick days every year, and it is the leading cause of disability around the world.

If you haven't suffered from back pain yet, the odds are not in our favor.

Luckily, most back pain is temporary. Most cases are gone within six weeks.

Back pain can flare up again from time to time, and it can even become chronic. That's when the real issues arise.

So what are the best treatment options for back pain that just won't go away?

Many people start out with a medical doctor who will evaluate the symptoms and treat it with a prescription or over-the-counter medication.

In more extreme cases, they will refer the patient to a back surgeon to correct the problem.

Is that the best course of action, though?

Many people are skipping the medical doctor altogether and choosing to see a chiropractor instead.

Chiropractors are known for their care of back pain, that often achieves results equal to or better than pain medications or surgery, without the side effects.

So what has made chiropractic care a popular choice when it comes to relieving back pain?

In the article below, we will discuss surgery, drug therapy, and chiropractic care as options for treating back pain.

Does Chiropractic Care Help With The Flu?

Should You See a Chiropractor When You're Sick?

Every single year, between 5% and 20% of the entire U.S. population is diagnosed with the flu.

Out of those people, 200,000 of them spend time in the hospital. Flu season is one of those things we can be absolutely sure of.

Death, taxes, and the flu. They're all inevitable.

For most of us, though, getting the flu isn't a big deal.

It's annoying, and you feel miserable for a while, but you bounce back and get on with your life.

The only time the flu is an issue is if you're either very young or very old.

Things can get complicated then.

That's why it's recommended for those groups of people to get their flu shots every year.

If you don't fall into one of those categories, staying hydrated, taking some probiotics and extra vitamin C, iron, and vitamin D3 is enough to protect us, and recover, from the flu.

Did you know, though, that your chiropractor can help protect you from the flu?

It's true. Your chiropractor can do much more than heal your back pain.

They can help you prevent and recover from the flu.

The Role Of Advanced Technology In Chiropractic Diagnosis and Treatment

Chiropractic care has always been viewed as an alternative, all-natural, or holistic form of medicine.

However, that doesn't make it any less effective because it is still a highly effective form of spinal care that helps millions of Americans improve painful health conditions every year.

Chiropractic care is particularly useful for treating the neck and back, and can also treat headaches, sports injuries, and any other musculoskeletal injury.

Your chiropractor will diagnose and treat your symptoms, and perform manual adjustments or spinal manipulations to treat the injuries or disorders.

Because of chiropractic care being known as an alternative form of medicine, few people think of technology when they think of chiropractic care.

However, in addition to manual adjustments, these treatments can now be done using different types of tools and advanced technologies.

Over the past few years, there have been many changes and advancements in chiropractic technology.

In the article below, we will discuss several of those changes and how they're moving chiropractic care forward.

How Do Chiropractors Know If Your Spine is Out of Alignment?

Signs of a Misaligned Spine 

The spine is a very complex structure that houses the spinal cord and spinal nerves that carry information throughout our entire bodies. The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae. Attached to the spine are muscles that allow strength and movement to the spine. 

When the spine becomes misaligned, also known as a subluxation, it can cause a wide variety of malfunctions within the body. 

Misalignment within the spine can affect our daily lives, causing neck and back pain, as well as pain throughout the rest of our bodies. This pain typically has to do with the misaligned vertebrae adding pressure to the nerves in the spinal column. 

The spine can become misaligned for any number of reasons. Some of which are obvious, like being involved in a serious accident. However, there are other reasons that may not be as clear, and it may not be obvious that there is a misalignment at all. 

Here are some common signs that your Chiropractor will look out for when determining if your spine is misaligned.
