A Natural Approach to Back Pain in Brunswick GA

Chiropractic Brunswick GA Back Pain Man

Chiropractic is centered on the philosophy of enabling your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that promote wellness. For Dr. Halverson, this involves working hard to restore your body's healthy functioning to prevent the need for medications or surgery. We notice that many of our Brunswick, GA Chiropractic patients are relieved to find a natural solution for their health issues.

Benefit of the Chiropractic practice in Brunswick GA

One benefit of chiropractic is that it helps people reduce or eliminate the use of drug treatments. Medications are frequently supplied to people who have back problems. This is such a serious concern that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a press release stating that opioid (painkiller) risks overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most well-known opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Data presented by the AAN mention the fact that roughly 50% of the patients taking these drugs for a period of three months are still on them five years later. This can further complicate the issue of back pain and healing, especially if an narcotic dependency arises.

Contrast that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the benefits are obvious. While a pill might be useful at temporarily relieving the symptoms of a health problem, it's not a real solution to the problem. Drugs don't mend your injured back; it will only mask the pain.

Dr. Halverson will first examine you to get to the source of your back problems and then work with you to address the problem -- without the need for risky drugs.
