Your Spine…you Never leave home without it!!
It’s Spinal Awareness Month!
80% of Americans will suffer from chronic back pain at some point in life. Nearly 30% may be struggling with persistent or chronic back pain right now and many resort to prescription painkillers, expensive steroid shots or even surgery. It is estimated that back pain accounts for more than 10 percent of all primary care doctors visits each year, and the cost for treatment stacks up to $86 billion annually. Back pain is actually one of the primary reasons why so many American adults get addicted to pain killers.
Don’t Settle for Band-Aids—Treat the Root Cause of Your Back Pain
With the exception of blunt force injuries, low back pain is commonly caused and exacerbated by:
Poor physical conditioning facilitated by inactivity
Internal disease, such as kidney stones, infections, blood clots
Osteoporosis (bone loss)
And of course…VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATIONS!
This is where WE come in!
Chiropractic, as you know, is all about your body’s innate healing ability and focuses on achieving the highest level of nerve function, without the use of drugs or surgery. A properly functioning spine and spinal cord means a better chance at optimum health and healing!
A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine revealed that chiropractic care is often more effective than medication for treating musculoskeletal pain. After following 272 neck-pain patients for 12 weeks, researchers found that those who used a chiropractor were more than twice as likely to be pain free compared to those who took medication.
