In todays fast-paced world, it seems like every time we turn around, theres a new, magical pill that can cure every ailment, ache and pain. While modern medicine offers many important health benefits, many times a natural, drug-free approach is best. At Back & Neck Care Chiropractic & Sports Massage, our Vancouver WA chiropractor and wellness team believes that natural pain management is a safe and effective alternative to drug-based medical treatments.
Vancouver WA Chiropractor Manages Chronic Pain
If you are struggling with chronic back or neck pain, its natural to worry about the effects of prescription medications. Some medication can be habit forming, leading to a lifetime of dependency on the drug in order to live a normal life. If you are searching for a natural alternative to medication, our Vancouver WA pain management team is here to help.
Here are 3 benefits of natural pain management:
1. Treat the underlying problem, not just the symptoms. Natural pain management, like chiropractic adjustments, works by addressing the underlying problem for chronic pain. Medication provides temporary relief by numbing the brains ability to process pain. Rather than covering up a problem, chiropractic care is part of the solution.
2. Enhance overall well being. Restoring alignment to the spine creates a healthy foundation and reduces the risk for future injury and illness. Massage therapy decreases the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, while increasing the levels of endorphins, our bodys natural feel-good chemical. Not only will your back or neck feel less pain, but also your entire body will feel better, stronger and healthier.
3. Speed the injury recovery process. Alternative pain relief treatments like massage therapy help the body heal faster by promoting the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood. This oxygen-rich blood flushes out toxins like lactic acid that block the healing process. If you have sustained an injury, then massage therapy not only will relieve your pain, but this treatment will also help you heal.
