At Precise Moves Chiropractic Wellness & Sports we think it is important to have options when looking for care. In many cases noninvasive methods of care can be utilized and get great results. Instead of starting out with drugs or surgery, which is invasive, body altering and may require long rehabilitation times and pain. Why not try something affordable, gentle and natural which may help resolve the issue? If you're thinking about different options for a health problem, consider a less invasive alternative before committing to surgery or prescription drugs. Prescription drugs which can be helpful for the short term are often times needed to take for a lifetime and can cause side effects that may be worse than what your initial symptoms were before taking the drug. Surgery can also have long recovery times with time loss at work and does not guarantee that the problem will disappear.
Is Western Medicine bad?
Of course not, there is always a need for mainstream medicine for emergencies, broken bones but there are many issues that can be naturally resolved with the right resources and little time. Western medicine has saved countless lives with advanced surgical techniques and newly developed pharmaceutical drugs. However, this type of medical treatment is not the only option if you have pain or other chronic health issues. In fact, it may not even be the best option for the majority of people. This is why there is alternative methods like chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopaths and other healing modalities.
The problem that can occur with mainstream medicine is that it normally treats the symptom but not the root or cause of a your health issue. Some surgeries can alleviate an issue but in most cases drugs offer a temporary solution that masks the worst of the patient's symptoms and cause a secondary problem.
Prescription drugs do start to wear off eventually, and put a lot of wear and tear on your internal organs like your heart, liver, kidney, pancreas, stomach and intestines. These areas then become worn down and tired leading to other symptoms. Your gut is called your second brain and is crucial for health.
Surgery, like I mentioned before is sometimes necessary but there is a high risk and can have complications. I myself have had the need for emergency surgery and am greatly appreciative that the option is out there for issues that can not be done by other providers. But, relying on them as the first line of defense can be dangerous and in a lot of cases avoidable. A better and more sustainable option is to try natural, noninvasive alternatives that allow you to heal naturally by addressing the cause or root of the problem. If the problem still persists then invasive methods should be investigated. In a lot of cases, patients do the opposite and try invasive measures first instead of last and once you change your body, it is done and in most cases you can't go back.
