Chiropractic is based on the philosophy of enabling your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage overall health. For Precision Chiropractic, this means working to reestablish your body's normal functioning to avoid the need for medications or surgery. We find that most of our Sayville patients are happy to find a natural answer for their health issues.
One benefit of chiropractic care is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of drugs. Prescription medications are oftentimes supplied to people who have back soreness. This is such a serious concern that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a press release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers outweigh the advantages when administered for back pain.
Some of the most popular opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Numbers provided by the AAN cite the fact that approximately 50% of the patients taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still taking them five years down the road. This can further complicate the issue of back pain and healing, especially if an opiate addiction occurs.
Compare that to chiropractic care which engages natural healing and the advantages are obvious. While a pill might be helpful at temporarily relieving the symptoms of a health condition, it's not a solution to the problem. A drug won't fix your damaged back; it will only mask the pain.
Precision Chiropractic will first examine you to get to the source of your back pain and then work with you to eliminate the spinal interference -- without the need for risky drugs.
