Chiropractic: The Natural Approach to Back Pain

Chiropractic: The Natural Approach to Back Pain

Chiropractic is centered on the philosophy of allowing your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate overall health. For Dr. Vinick, this involves working hard to restore your body's healthy performance to avoid the need for drugs or surgery. We notice that most of our Redondo Beach patients are relieved to find a natural solution for their health problems.

One benefit of chiropractic is that it helps people minimize or even eliminate the use of drugs. Medications are frequently supplied to patients who have back soreness. This is such a serious problem 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 well-known narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Data presented by the AAN mention the fact that roughly 50% of the people taking these drugs for a period of three months are still dependent on them five years later. This can further complicate the difficulty of back pain and recovery, particularly if an opiate addiction arises.

Contrast that to chiropractic care which engages natural healing and the advantages are clear. While a pill might be useful at temporarily suppressing the discomfort of a health problem, it's not a long-term solution to the problem. A drug won't fix your injured back; it will only conceal the pain.

Dr. Vinick will first examine you to get to the root of your back problems and then work with you to solve the spinal interference -- without any risky drugs.

If you're ready to get out of pain, naturally, give our Redondo Beach office a call at (310) 375-4325 to make an appointment with Dr. Vinick.
