Enjoy Natural Pain Relief with Chiropractic: A Safe Alternative to Using Opioids

Written By BeDell Chiropractic on November 12, 2018

When it comes to opioid use, the statistics made for hard reading. 

At present, in the United States alone, more than 100 people die every day because of their opioid use. What’s causing this? 

Many believe it’s largely due to people not being provided with effective ways to manage their pain. They are been given opioid prescriptions without trying safer, more natural alternatives beforehand. 

To overcome this epidemic, it’s crucial natural pain relief is the first option in a treatment plan – and this includes chiropractic care. 

The Importance of Natural Pain Relief 

It goes without saying that opioids are highly addictive. However, they also have a tendency to “mask” the true problem a patient is suffering from.

While opioids are often effective at dulling aches and pains, in a lot of cases, they only succeed in masking the problem. 

The result? 

Injuries aren’t given a chance to heal and long-term, perhaps even permanent, damage arises as a result.

This is why a growing number of health professionals are seeking natural pain relief alternatives for their patients, using these as the first option in a treatment plan. 

However, those who have already tried opioids or have found themselves addicted to them aren’t ruled out of these options. Rather, natural treatments are a great step toward helping those who are still suffering from painful symptoms or who are in the grips of an opioid addiction. 

How Can Chiropractic Help? 

This tried-and-tested practice has been revered for hundreds of years. As a natural, drug-free approach to a number of conditions, it helps treat everything from whiplash to sciatica. 

And science backs this up, too. 

For example, one study looked into how chronic neck pain is effectively treated with chiropractic. Comparing it to conventional medication, it highlighted that, of those visiting their chiropractor, 6/10 patients enjoyed a 75% reduction in their pain, compared to just a third of those taking medication.
