Back pain is one of the most common maladies facing people today, and one of the more popular places for taking care of back pain is Urgent Care or the hospital. The intervention of choice is usually:
- Muscle relaxers
Those are all OK, but I am sure that most people who have back pain aren’t suffering from ibuprofen deficiencies. Most of the time there is a problem with structure and function of the back. None of these interventions really attack the problem at hand. In a previous blog I used a campfire analogy to explain why chiropractic is the best first intervention for back pain. Not only do we have a good record, but when people use chiropractors for their first line of back pain therapy, then they are much less likely to have surgery. The related article also states that surgery may not even be helpful for improved outcomes. I also posted on my article about the fact that people who choose chiropractors ended up saving money on their healthcare costs. Everyone is looking for a way to save money on healthcare, and this is a fundamental change that Northfield can make. This is what a person suffering from back pain should be advised upon when having back pain:
This is why I love and hate my job. I love how effectively I can change someone’s life, because they are suffering, but I do not necessarily love the part of having to “be discovered”. That means that the medical community will not tell the patient to seek my care even though the most recent evidence chiropractic has been great! That is what was always hurting us in the past, but now we are “proving” what our patients have already known. Chiropractic is the best medicine for helping people with back pain.
If you are suffering from back pain or some other pain about the body then please contact Cannon Pointe Chiropractic 507-645-8000. We will find out if chiropractic is the best option for your healthcare. Also, if you are currently seeing a chiropractor explain to your other healthcare professionals about the benefits that you are having. I am sure that their passion is also to help as many people as they can, but they may not know about how great chiropractic is.
