Chronic Pain Treatment

The Dilemma – Over-Using Pills Is A Bad Choice

People of Midvale, Utah suffering from Chronic neck and low back pain face a serious dilemma. They must choose either to live with chronic pain or use pain killers and anti-inflammatory pills frequently or daily to mask the condition.

Most Salt Lake area residents who experience chronic headaches, neck, back, foot and knee pain rely on pain meds or anti-inflammatory drugs to mitigate the nightmare. However, they may be on a slippery slope because continuous use of pills can have very serious side effects.” You simply cannot take pain pills or NSAIDs over long periods of time and not potentially threaten your health,” says Dr. John Ratliff. He continues, “Heart attacks, strokes, liver failure, and addiction are some of the common problems with over usage of medications. The other downside of masking the pain with meds is never discovering nor treating the source of chronic pain and masking or encouraging more damage by unplugging the body’s warning system, pain.”

Long term use of any of those types of medications can be dangerous. For example, long term use of NSAIDs like Ibuprofen can result in heart attacks, strokes, and other serious conditions. Tylenol can cause sudden liver failure. Percocet may create an addiction.

Poor Posture Can Cause Chronic Pain

Cottonwood Chiropractic is a chronic pain center and has treated thousands of people in the Salt Lake area effectively for all types of pain including chronic pain. Usually, the underlying cause of their pain is spinal misalignment or poor posture. The spinal column is a wonderfully balanced and complex structure that provides protection for the nervous system and gives core strength to the body. When poor alignment or poor posture develops after a trauma, years of abusive daily activities, or even from fatigue and stress, gravity literally starts to collapse you down. This can lead to degenerative arthritis, damaged muscles, joints, and nerves. Sooner or later, pain syndromes become chronic.

The Alternative

The answer to the above dilemma is to look to better natural solutions. The doctors at Cottonwood Chiropractic are CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics) trained and certified. Evaluation of the structural integrity of your spine can reveal poor postural alignment that puts added stress on spinal joints, sensitive nerves, and muscles potentially leading to degenerative arthritis, nerve damage, chronic pain, even disability, and poor health. CBP methods are proven to treat spinal misalignment that often results in chronic pain.

Spinal Remodeling Can Provide Dramatic Relief For Many Utah Residents

As good as conventional chiropractic adjustments are for pain, chiropractic called CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics) deals with the restoration of spinal curves so important for maintaining proper posture. Using researched-based methods with over 200 studies and clinical trials, CBP is able to get more dramatic results and more lasting relief usually without the need for drugs or surgery. Midvale people may think their spines are what they are and give in to chronic pain, but there is a real solution. Posture can change! Curves can change with spinal remodeling using mirror image exercises, adjustments, and proven 2-way traction. Results are often stunning. Patients feel like they have regained youth and vitality back without pain, fatigue, or disability. Post-X-rays may show measurable results.

    The Power of Chiropractic Care

    Did you know that our nervous system controls every single function in our body? From feeling pain to proper organ function, a healthy nervous system is critical in ensuring good health.

    Nerve energy flows from the brain, down the spine, and into each part of our body, so it only makes sense that even the smallest blockage can lead to diminished nerve flow. If left untreated, diminished nerve flow manifests as pain, disease, and even organ dysfunction.

    This is why chiropractic care is so critical. By removing such blockages and restoring the spine back to health, chiropractors enable the body’s life-giving nerve energy to flow, resulting in a healthier you.
