Chiropractic Treatment: The Natural Approach to Back Pain

Las Vegas Natural Approaches to Back Pain with Chiropractic Therapy

Chiropractic is based on the principle of aiding your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate wellness. For Dr. Forsyth, this involves working to reestablish your body's normal performance to avoid the need for medications or surgery. We notice that many of our Las Vegas patients are pleased to find a natural approach for their health issues.

One benefit of chiropractic adjustments is that it helps people decrease or even eliminate the use of drugs. Medications are frequently issued to people who have back problems. This is such a serious crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a report stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most common narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Numbers supplied by the AAN mention the fact that roughly 50% of the people taking these drugs for a period of three months are still on them five years later. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and recovery, especially if an opiate dependency occurs.

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

How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Dr. Forsyth will first examine you to get to the origin of your back pain and then work with you to correct the problem -- without any risky drugs.
