Lately drug abuse and related crimes are in the news daily. The most common story revolves around Heroin and Opioid use. Opioids are prescription medications that act on the nervous system to relieve pain. They are commonly prescribed for pain relief or after surgery as patients recover. They are highly addictive and therefore are in high demand both legally and illegally. Because of the temporary nature of medications to treat pain, patients need to continually look for sources for medication. Many times people who have become addicted to Opioids turn to Heroin. It is cheaper and easier to access than prescription medications….. And it is extremely dangerous.
Pain management and pain control have become thriving industries in the medical field. There are specialists whose whole careers are spent controlling pain. In the field of Chiropractic, there is much belief that pain serves a purpose. It lets you know that there is problem in your body, and that steps need to be taken to correct that problem. Treating the pain without correcting the cause of the pain is a temporary solution at best..
But we have a very simple suggestion. As often as humanly possible choose naturally. Treat pain proactively, through Chiropractic, Nutrition, and Exercise. Sometimes there is not a choice. But make sure that you teach your children that the best forms of pain relief do not come in a bottle.
These topics are difficult to talk about, but they need to be discussed. If you are experiencing pain and looking for options, ask Dr. Tyjeski about Chiropractic and how it can remove subluxations and correct the source of the problem, remove pain, and thereby remove the need for pain relief in a bottle!
