Prescription medication abuse has reached epidemic proportions in our country. Millions of Americans use prescription painkillers, antidepressants and ADHD stimulants for non-medical use, often with tragic consequences when mixed with other drugs or taken with alcohol. In fact, according to the CDC, pain reliever abuse cause nearly three out of four prescription drug overdoses. With this in mind, this year during Chiropractic Health Month, we are raising awareness of the benefits of chiropractic’s whole-person, patient-centered approach that provides a drug-free means to healing and wellness.
Unlike opioid medications which numb the pain, or ADHD stimulants that mask true symptoms, chiropractic gets to the source of the problem helping to correct any misalignments and remove interferences in the central nervous systems that are triggering pain, neurological disorders or overall poor health. Chiropractic’s whole-body philosophy involves dietary, fitness, ergonomics and other lifestyle advice to help the body heal itself.
From relieving ear infections, to managing blood pressure, to alleviating pain and attention disorder symptoms, chiropractic is an excellent wellness choice that helps the body heal naturally and function optimally without drugs or invasive procedures.
