Chiropractic Care: Time to Rethink Pain Management
The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) states as many as 25% of patients who take prescription opioids for long-term, non-cancer pain from primary care physicians, end up have issues with addiction. That is one in every four people. Perhaps, even a more startling statistic is that 1,000 people are treated in emergency rooms for prescription opioids abuse every day. There is not just a problem with illegal drug use in this country but in the over prescribing of drugs used in pain management. At Cornerstone Chiropractic, your pain management chiropractor in Everett, WA, believes it is far past time to rethink pain management.
The Illusion of Opioid Pain Management
Opioids and other drugs can mask pain as long as the user continues to use them. This can give patients a false impression that the cause of their pain is being cured. In reality, nothing has changed. In fact, the actual root cause of the pain may worsen as the pain is covered up with drugs. This is often a recipe for long-term addiction and abuse. To add insult to injury, the root cause remains.
Your Pain Management Chiropractor in Everett, WA
Cornerstone Chiropractic is pleased to be your pain management chiropractor in Everett, WA. Rather than treating pain with drugs, we'll conduct a chiropractic exam to determine the root cause. That cause may be a sports injury, work related injury, or even a lifestyle choice like poor posture or nutrition. Once we discover the cause of the pain, we address it through a treatment program involving natural chiropractic modalities, most often chiropractic adjustments. These skeletal and neuromuscular adjustments seek to restore proper alignment to the body, allowing the body's systems to better work together and heal itself. We think this is a more common sense approach to pain management. Best of all, our chiropractic care is prescribed with the goal of long-term healing.
