Many of us experience back and neck pain. But when is it the right time to see a chiropractor for a diagnosis or treatment? And can they really help? The answer is yes. Chiropractors are medical professionals who diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders.
A chiropractor can use many different techniques to relieve musculoskeletal pain, including applied pressure, massage, and hands-on manipulation (adjustment) of the vertebrae and joints
With the opioid crisis, more people are refusing to take pain medication for fear of addiction. Canadians are looking for options to not only reduce their pain but correct what is causing the pain to begin with. Chiropractors look for the root cause of musculoskeletal pain while medications only improve the symptoms for a short time.
Unfortunately, opioids contribute to a lower quality of life for those suffering from chronic pain. Choosing a chiropractor over opioids not only has long-term advantages, but it can eliminate the risk of other problems and side effects that you may develop.
