Imagine this scenario: You’re hurting and you just want to make it through the day with as little pain as possible so you can keep your job and maintain a normal life. Unfortunately, many people do not have to imagine this because it is their way of life. Whether it’s an injury, chronic pain or degenerative condition that leaves a person in pain, the goal of any patient is to feel better. However, covering up your pain is not necessarily the best option.
You understand that masking the pain with certain drugs and treatments does not fix the underlying issue; it only puts a Band-Aid on a bigger problem. Chiropractic care does not mask the problem or just treat the symptom; it treats the underlying issue and it also doesn’t have the potentially harmful side effects of so many of the pain medications.
