Depending upon the individual in question, the source of their problem and the treatment offered, most patients reports a significant reduction in pain, discomfort and symptoms of disease or illness after seeing a chiropractor.
Typically many think that you only see a chiropractor after an auto accident or work injury; the fact is that individuals of all ages can have a misalignment in the spine causing nerve interference.
When visiting a primary care physician to seek relief from pain or other symptoms of ill-health, the recommended treatment will usually be some form of medication, whether over-the-counter or prescribed. These will generally mask the symptoms but, while they may provide relief, will not fix the underlying cause of the pain or symptoms.
Chiropractic care is a safe and natural treatment. It is ideal for individuals of all ages and avoids the risks of the potential side-effects or complications that arise in the very young or senior population when taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
