Will Pain Medication Fix Reoccurring Backache, Neck Ache, or Headache?
Pain medication typically reduces the symptoms temporarily and makes conditions more tolerable, until the body has a chance to heal what is injured or correct what is wrong. Once healing or correction has occurred, there should be a continual decrease of pain or total absence of pain. If the pain persists, this is evidence that something is still unhealed, uncorrected, or could be getting worse. There may be better solutions other than pain medication.
If I Decide to Consult with the Chiropractor, What Will They Do?
In most cases when someone visits our office for a consultation, there is a brief medical history form that is filled out. This helps us understand your overall health condition and gives us smaller bits of information that can make a world of difference in understanding your present state. We also ask what your major concerns are at the time of the consultation, which allows us the opportunity to address any specific conditions or problems that we may be able to help with. Furthermore, it provides you with the chance to gain a better understanding of what your specific health concerns may be, and what you could do to better manage them.
Can Pain in the Shoulders Be Helped by Chiropractic?
The shoulders can be painful due to many conditions and reasons. Some circumstances can be helped by chiropractic and some cannot.
