Consider Conservative Chiropractic Care for Your Back Pain

If you suffer from chronic back pain that can impact your work performance, ability to get good sleep, and even interpersonal relationships. Getting out of pain is always a top priority for those who suffer.

Here are the common ways people address their back pain:

Medication: A Bandage Solution With Side Effects

Many people reach for over-the-counter medication or get prescribed painkillers that have many side effects and can lead to dependency. Given the nation’s opioid epidemic, it’s always advisable to seek natural alternatives to medication.

Surgery: A One-Time Expensive Fix

At about $100K, back surgery is expensive and doesn’t always work. We think that’s a high price to pay for a one-time fix. Even if someone has great insurance coverage and the surgery only costs them a $10 copay, that will still increase the overall cost of healthcare across the board. That’s because we’re all paying for it one way or another-whether with our tax dollars or premium dollars.

Because surgery is a one-time fix for a problem that will likely recur, at Novo Chiropractic Sports & Wellness Center we think the common-sense solution is to get to the underlying cause of back pain with chiropractic.

Chiropractic: Effective Care That Gets to the Root

As chiropractors, we historically say we’re getting to the bottom of the problem, which is the subluxation/misalignment to your spine. As long as we’re alive, wear and tear happens to our spine. Think of our teeth. Because we run the risk of cavities, it’s crucial to brush and floss our teeth daily and see the dentist for regular checkups. It’s the same when it comes to your back.

You need to take care of it, particularly as you’ll keep lifting, bending, sitting, etc. All those things we do day in and day out cause back pain, and that’s okay. With regular chiropractic tune-ups, you can keep your back healthy and pain-free.
