The Pain Doctor has published an article detailing 34 Powerful Benefits of Chiropractic Care.
If you suffer from pain, do you really need 34 reasons? Here are the top 3 which are reason enough to see a Chiropractor:
1. Chiropractic care provides powerful pain relief
Some studies have found that chiropractic care can reduce pain even more effectively than medications. A study in 2012 found that spinal manipulation was more effective than medication for acute neck pain. An earlier study in 2013 found that not only did patients with neck pain show faster improvement with chiropractic treatments but also that they paid less for their treatment overall. We’ve recently rounded up even more research backing the use of chiropractic to help relieve pain in our post “6 New Chiropractic Pain Management Research Findings.”
Chiropractic care can’t cure everything. In many cases, though, it can reverse the cause of some of your pain. If your neck is out of whack, taking a painkiller will treat the symptoms – but seeing a chiropractor might just correct the cause of the pain. They look specifically to the nervous system of the body. This system controls everything, from reflexive responses like breathing to every movement we make. Since nerves run up the spine and radiate out through the body, chiropractors believe that spine health is everything.

3. Drug-free pain management
Pain patients tend to be very familiar with pain medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, but chiropractic adjustments can provide totally drug-free pain relief. It’s a great option for anyone interested in reducing medication use. Chiropractic doctors utilize this drug-free approach since they treat the whole body as an holistic system, focusing less on symptoms and more on maintaining a healthy body. It’s the foundation for their approach to patient care. Although there are various techniques that chiropractors use to treat patients, none of them are as invasive as surgery, and patients report few, if any, side effects as are common with medications. For many patients, this one of the most important benefits of chiropractic care.
