A Natural Approach to Back Pain

Avoid Drugs with Chiropractic Care for Back Pain in Memphis

Chiropractic is centered on the concept of aiding your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage wellness. For Dynamic Chiropractic, this means working hard to reestablish your body's healthy functioning to prevent the need for drugs or surgical treatments. We find that most of our Memphis patients are relieved to find a natural answer for their health problems.

One benefit of chiropractic adjustments is that it helps people reduce or eliminate the use of narcotics. Prescriptions are oftentimes issued to individuals who have back pain. This is such a serious problem that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the benefits when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most popular opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Statistics supplied by the AAN mention the fact that approximately half of the people taking these drugs for a period of three months are still dependent on them five years later. This can further complicate the difficulty of back pain and recovery, especially if an opiate addiction arises.

Compare that to chiropractic care which engages natural healing and the advantages are clear. While a medication might be helpful at briefly relieving the symptoms of a health problem, it's not a real solution to the problem. Drugs don't fix your injured back; it will only conceal the pain.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Dynamic Chiropractic will first examine you to get to the source of your back problems and then work with you to correct the spinal interference -- without risky drugs.
