Too often, people in pain reach for an over-the-counter pain reliever to solve their problem. When that doesn’t work, their next step may be to visit their family physician who will likely recommend prescription narcotics to mask the pain. In severe cases, surgery may even be recommended. Isn’t there another option?
There is! There are non-narcotic and non-surgical treatments that can help provide relief from acute and chronic pain. At Wellspring Health in Orange City, we offer effective treatment options that can help patients who are tired of living with chronic pain. Contact us today for a free evaluation.
The Trouble With Narcotics
The opioid crisis has highlighted the dangers of overprescribing pain medications. In addition to the possibility of creating an addiction, narcotic pain relief doesn’t fix the problem, it only masks the pain. Patients experience short-term relief, but once the medication wears off, the pain returns.
Over time, patients who come to rely on narcotics for pain relief may need higher and higher doses of the medication or need to take it more frequently to experience relief. It can become a never-ending cycle.
Non-Narcotic Pain Treatment Options
Chiropractic care is an effective alternative for pain management. Non-narcotic and non-invasive chiropractic care addresses the root of the problem, helping to restore natural function and position so that the body can heal itself and remain pain-free.
A chiropractic care plan may involve a variety of treatment options. At Wellspring Health, we tailor your care plan to meet your needs based on the injury you sustained and the severity of the pain you’re experiencing. A comprehensive treatment plan may include any or all of the following:
- Chiropractic Care
- Massage Therapy
- Spinal Decompression
- Stem Cell Therapy
