The week of March 2-8 is National Health Ethics week. Health ethics is about providing the best care while keeping the patients best interests at heart.
Ethical Principles of Chiropractic Care
During National Health Ethics week, we would like to remind you that chiropractic care is conservative care. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and does not involve taking any medications. In fact, chiropractic care seeks to reduce your reliance on powerful prescription medications while helping your body heal.
Conservative Care First
Conservative medical care should be the first option for healing injuries and managing pain because it is the least invasive medical treatment available. Our chiropractor believes that your body has the potential to heal itself when given the right stimulus. Healing your body starts with chiropractic adjustments, proper nutrition and exercise. Eating the right amounts of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats can help your body regenerate on a cellular level. We also believe that exercise plays a big part in healing. Strong muscles help support your skeletal system and back, which can reduce your pain naturally.
Treat Injuries Instead of Symptom Management
When your vertebrae and joints are misaligned or you have sports or repetitive motion injuries, your body lets you know by sending pain signals to your brain. Traditional medical advice recommends taking anti-inflammatories and pain medications. Unfortunately, pain medications only mask the symptoms. They do not heal the injury.
Chiropractic care, on the other hand, seeks to treat your injuries so they heal. When your back and neck pain, sciatica and headaches heal, your pain is reduced naturally and permanently. Additionally, chiropractic care can lessen the pain of certain degenerative disorders, including arthritis, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease.
By offering conservative care first, our chiropractic office is helping to maintain its core patient values and ethics. If you have chronic lower back pain, neck pain, headaches or repetitive motion or sports injuries, try chiropractic care first for pain management.
