Chiropractic Care is Top Choice for Drug-Free Help with Pain

March 19, 2014

Studies on the efficacy of chiropractic care are plentiful as researchers try to understand this safe and effective approach to pain and many other ailments. In a recent study conducted by Media General Research, 42 percent of people polled had experienced back pain in the year prior to the study. Chiropractic care was the number one drug-free, holistic choice to relieve their symptoms. 91 percent of patients that visited a chiropractor for their pain reported improved conditions immediately following chiropractic adjustments.


Despite the high number of people reporting some form of back pain in the study, headaches are the number one complaint for adults. In fact, it’s estimated that between 80 and 90 percent of adults in the U.S. will suffer from tension headaches at some point in their lives.¬†They may suffer episodic headaches, which occur less than 15 times per month or chronic headaches, which are more consistent. Unfortunately, many people still rely on potentially harmful medications to take care of their headaches.

Doctors of chiropractic use precise adjustments of the vertebrae in the neck to restore mobility, which relieves pressure on the nerves, aids in reducing muscle spasms and reduces the pain of headaches. Most patients report immediate relief, and studies have shown chiropractic adjustments to be more effective than drug therapies.

The odds of adverse outcomes with manual adjustment of the neck are extremely rare — less than one in 5.85 million adjustments, according to the American Chiropractic Association’s findings. Acetaminophen is often used to treat headaches and can be damaging to your liver, while ibuprofen and other NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can cause gastrointestinal bleeding. Chiropractic is by far the safest choice.

The bottom line in chiropractic care — if you’re alive and have subluxations, you’re better off alive without nerve interference.¬†Chiropractic Lifecare of America believes everyone should have access to safe and effective, affordable chiropractic services.
