|Chiropractic Care and Pain Management
In the field of medicine, the term pain management is code for drugs and intraspinal steroid injections. Pain management drugs are almost always opioids such as Vicodin, OxyContin, and morphine. Intraspinal steroid injections are at best a temporary fix, are often based on best guesses, and can have devastating side effects if done incorrectly.
On the other hand, chiropractic pain management always uses conservative methods of care. Chiropractic care does not introduce foreign substances or instruments into the body. The power of chiropractic care lies in its ability to facilitate the body's own healing mechanisms. In essence, based on a systematic analysis of the person's biomechanics and physiology, chiropractic care removes roadblocks to normal functioning of the nerve system. When the nerve systems pathways are free and clear, the body can begin to heal itself from the inside-out.
Your body is very smart. For many problems involving pain, all your body needs to heal itself is a freely functioning nerve system. The goal of chiropractic care is to enable such normal functioning.
I was in a very serious car accident October of 2004. I visited an MD & Neurologist for almost a year and had very little improvement even w/ physical therapy. When Dr. Sorrell opened his practice nearby I stopped in. Within a few weeks I could move my shoulders and neck farther than I had for over a year.I am now back at the gym, swimming. And I don't have a headache every day. I recommend trying chiropractic. It works for me.
