A Natural Approach to Back Pain

Mauldin Natural Approaches to Back Pain with Chiropractic Therapy

Chiropractic is centered on the approach of allowing your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage wellness. For Dr. Izquierdo, this means working hard to restore your body's healthy performance to prevent the need for medications or surgical treatments. We notice that many of our Mauldin patients are happy to find a natural solution for their health issues.

One benefit of chiropractic therapy is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of drug treatments. Prescription medications are frequently supplied to individuals who have back soreness. This is such a significant crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most popular narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Figures offered by the AAN cite the fact that about half of the patients taking these drugs for a period of three months are still taking them five years down the road. This can further complicate the difficulty of back pain and healing, especially if an opiate dependency occurs.

Contrast that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the advantages are obvious. While a drug might be useful at briefly reducing the symptoms of a health problem, it's not a solution to the problem. A drug won't mend your injured spine; it will only cover up the pain.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You?

Dr. Izquierdo will first examine you to get to the origin of your back pain and then work with you to solve the problem -- without any risky medications.

If you're ready to get out of pain, naturally, give our Mauldin office a call at (864) 627-4325 to make an appointment with Dr. Izquierdo.
