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 with drugs or surgery. Why start with invasive measures that may require long rehabilitation times and pain, when affordable, gentle, natural methods may help resolve the issue? If you're thinking about different options for a health problem, consider a less invasive alternative before you committing to surgery or prescription drugs. Drugs are often times needed to take for a lifetime and can cause side effects. Surgery can 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.
The problem with mainstream medicine is that it normally treats the symptom but not the root or cause of a patient's health issues. Some surgeries can alleviate an issue but in most cases drugs offer a temporary solution that masks the worst of the patient's symptoms.
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.
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. 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.
Painful health conditions don't appear out of nowhere. They develop slowly sometimes and faster at other times but are caused by injuries, illness, or simply the accumulation of bad habits over time. Our Redwood City chiropractor will help you identify the lifestyle factors that may be causing or exacerbating symptoms so that you can make changes that give you lasting relief that stays.
When you decide to try alternative medicine, it doesn't mean you'll be receiving low-tech care.
