When you’re suffering from a chronic pain problem, you can’t help but get dizzy from all the available healthcare choices on offer. Going to a chiropractor is one of those options. We at Cox Chiropractic Clinic in Charlottesville, VA, know the reasons why our chiropractors can help.
Chiropractors Go to School for a Long Time
It’s a common misconception that just anyone can be a chiropractor. Chiropractors need to go to an undergraduate college or university and then study another four years at a chiropractic school. After getting a Doctor of Chiropractic, they need to get a state license.
Chiropractic Care Is Not Addictive
Addiction is one thing you do not have to worry about with chiropractic care. Chiropractors are not allowed to prescribe drugs of any kind.
You’re Less Likely to Ever Become Addicted
Drugs are the main tools in a doctor's toolbox, so it's no surprise that their first suggestion for pain is to prescribe drugs. If you do not go to a doctor to get that painkiller, and instead went to a chiropractor, you cannot get addicted. That is why the people who go to a chiropractor first for their pain were less likely to ever become addicted to opioid drugs than people who first went to a doctor for treatment.
Our Chiropractors Get to Know You
Pain is a puzzle with many pieces. There is often more than one cause for any chronic pain problem, and often more than one solution. In order to see how best to help you, a chiropractor from our practice gets to know your lifestyle, your diet, and your posture. All these things are studied to see how they fit together to make up your pain puzzle. Our chiropractors know that a type of treatment that works for many people may not be best for you.
Chiropractic Care Is Effective
Although chiropractic care does not help everyone, it does help a lot of people. Many non-chiropractic doctors recommend spinal manipulation for lower back pain. Many non-chiropractic doctors also say that chiropractic care can help many people with whiplash, especially when used in conjunction with physical therapy. There are also many signs that chiropractic care is effective for migraines, herniated discs, and many other chronic pain conditions.
