Chiropractor or Pain Medication? What’s Best?

Say your back is hurting and you are in a lot of pain. Should you go to the urgent care and get medication, or go see a chiropractor? Well, often times chiropractic care can help, but it’s not going to be as immediate as taking a painkiller. The painkiller isn’t going to get at the root of your problem, but will quickly mask it for a while. Those of you who have taken opioid painkillers know that you shouldn’t drive, work, or care for your children while on this medication. That makes the painkiller a less attractive choice. But what you should really worry about is overdosing and dying as a result of your painkiller.
In this report, the Center for Disease Control informs us that 48,000 women died from accidental painkiller overdoses between 1999 and 2010. I just want to get the word out. If there is a way I can help you solve your chronic pain and get out of it alive, please call me for a consultation.

All the best, Sharon R. Martinez, D.C.
