A Natural Approach to Back Pain

Avoid Drugs with Chiropractic Therapy for Back Pain in Yuma

Chiropractic is based on the principle of aiding your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate wellness. For Montero Chiropractic Clinic, this means working hard to restore your body's natural functioning to avoid the need for drugs or surgical treatments. We see that many of our Yuma patients are happy to find a natural answer for their health issues.

One advantage of chiropractic therapy is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of drug treatments. Prescription medications are commonly supplied to patients who have back pain. This is such a significant problem that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when administered for back pain.

Some of the most common opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Statistics presented by the AAN cite the fact that approximately 50% of the patients taking these drugs for a period of three months are still on them five years down the road. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and healing, especially if an opiate dependency occurs.

Compare that to chiropractic which involves natural healing and the benefits are evident. While a pill might be useful at temporarily suppressing the discomfort of a health condition, it's not a long-term solution to the problem. Drugs can't mend your damaged back; it will only mask the pain.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You?

Montero Chiropractic Clinic will first examine you to get to the root of your back pain and then work with you to eliminate the problem -- without the need for risky medications.
